Italy Here I Come!

I am thrilled to now be able to share with you that I will be teaching at the Abruzzo School of Creative Art in Italy fro August 22- 29, 2012! I am so honored and happy.  I also applied because it's been a while since I have done something that scares me. I think it is important to keep pushing at my comfort zone.

Locanda dell'Asino d'oro, the school's location, is situated approx. 6 minutes from the ancient city of Sulmona and a couple of minutes from Averil Stuart-Head’s, the CEO, home in Introdacqua, a medieval village. Sulmona is approx. 2 hours east of Rome and is very easy to get to from Fumicino airport. 

I will be teaching "No Time to Quilt: An Artful Approach to Quilt-As-You-Go." It is my own technique. On the first day, we will make journals to learn the technique and provide each student with a unique place to capture not only what happens in class but the entire experience. I'll share some of my journals tomorrow. Then we will begin creating a quilt that represents the Sulmona area.  Check out the school's website for more details.

What have you done lately that has pushed on your comfort zone?
