I love speaking to groups and explaining what I do. It is something new to many even though the textile art I practice has been around since the 1960's.
I had timed the talk at home with time to spare but oddly enough I had no time left to demo the free motion technique on my machine. I think the students would have liked to see that and maybe try it at home.

My next talk is February 23, 2012, at the East Toronto Quilters Guild.
In April, I am going in to speak and work with the grade 9 and 10 art students at Branksome Hall.
