I have spent hours manning the Red Cross Missing Person phone line yesterday and the Christchurch Earthquake Helpline today, receiving calls from people who can't find relatives, neighbours or friends. People who have found dogs and are looking after them. People who have been found, and calls from people who simply don't know what to do.
In some cases it was hard not to cry, stories were heartbreaking. I hope that in my lifetime I never have to experience what they are experiencing. They are so courageous.
So many people have lost everything, their homes are rubble, they have nothing but what they stand up in.
My heart is with those families with loved ones missing.
Join me from the beginning of April and make a sturdy practical journal for everyday use,
special project, or to give as a gift. Start with a theme in mind or go for random!
In this workshop we will work through every step together from preparing the fabrics, choosing covers, designing pages and signatures, embellishing
to final construction of the journal.
I will be there every step of the way to advise and guide you,
to answer all your questions and to watch you
create some fabulous keepsake pieces.
You can follow my lessons and make a journal similar to mine, or be adventurous and make
a journal that is unique to you!
The workshop will run through a special
"invitation only" blog that only
students will have access to. You can visit the blog whenever you want to, night or day and I am only an email away from you if you need help.
There will be loads of instructions, photos and videos, and
scissors and rulers will be outlawed!
In this workshop you will be using your computer,
your sewing machine,
doing some hand stitching, dyeing, embellishing,
Last year the girls doing the class all had fun, and some days the classroom was a complete shambles, now I could tell you about the online parties, but that's a whole other story! LOL
There will also be lots of deconstructing
No two journals will look the same!
