Everyone knows by now that many people lost their homes and many homes and businesses were severely damaged during the Southern Alberta floods over the past week.
High River received the most damage along with the First Nations just south of Calgary, Bragg Creek area, Canmore and Calgary itself.

Calgarians amazingly have pulled up their socks and are producing the Calgary Stampede as usual.  I spoke to a chuckwagon driver at the Ponoka Stampede this past weekend and he advised that the races and rodeo will be going forward as planned.

If you can help these people in flood ravaged communities, please contact
Check their website for donations and contributions.


Look at the results of painting and playing and stencilling and stamping and beading and stitching with glittery thread!

Amazing and creative students.   Each student brought their own commercial fabrics and turned them into something fabulous.  They experimented and played with all of those interesting techniques.  And the results are here.  Everyone went home with at least a small art quilt top...several finished the projects in class.
I had a great time coaching and watching the creative process with this great group!
Send me photos everyone.
