I returned home yesterday from 9 wonderful days of teaching for my dear friend Deirdre who owns ‘Out of Hand’ in Calgary. I have taught here for a number of years now and have made many lovely friendships. This year was exceptional as many of my students returned with their finished pieces to share. I have decided to do two posts the first about previous class pieces then tomorrow I will post about the 4 new classes.
Deirdre has an amazing store filled with all the fibers and trims I love to use. Needless to say each student has a large stash of luscious embellishments which you can see they have used on their lovely pieces.
Deirdre and Pam gave me permission to share the lovely pillow Pam made for a class she will be teaching in the fall. It is made from our Christmas line of ribbons by Renaissance Ribbons. I love that she used Dupioni Silk as a backing it made the pillow a little more classy.
It is a treat to return to ‘Out of Hand’ each year as I have seen how each students work has evolved and it is fun to be able to teach more challenging classes. I can’t wait to see what each student brings to share next year.
