Happy New Year!  My apologies, the holidays always find me so busy that my blog usually suffers.  I am sure many of you are just as hurried during the Christmas Season.  So much time spent baking, decorating and shopping for that perfect gift.  I had a great idea… many of us have joined block of the month clubs, what if we did a gift of the month club?  My thoughts are that each month I will offer a class that will teach a fast and easy quilt project to be given as a gift.  We will do wall hangings, towel appliques, penny rugs, purses and travel bags,  lap quilts, and so much more.   I will be teaching new techniques in painting quilted fabric, creating original art quilts and embellishing everything from clothing to christmas stockings. I am getting my  class schedule together and I would LOVE  input from all of you.  If you have a project that you would like to learn, let me know, leave a comment on my blog or facebook page, email me or feel free to call.  I also will continue to give private lessons and will post fun projects on my web page.  I will continue to post helpful hints as well as fun facts.  I should have my schedule for february ready by next week, so please hurry and send me more projects to include.


I also have some fun news for many of you.  I have recently been hired to host an online quilting community with TN Marketing in Waysata, Mn.  I was hired along with 2 other women, we will be doing webinars, classes online as well as a blog that will be a wonderful source of information for all of you.  I am very excited to start this next chapter in my life.



My children are all leaving the nest. Samantha, my youngest will be heading off to college this year, we aren’t sure where she will be heading but she is leaning toward Eckert in Florida.  It looks like my chauffeur days are behind me.  Dave and I look forward to visiting grandchildren and following our passions.  So for now, leave a comment, email me (kphanson@northlc.com), or phone me  2218-393-6262 to let me know what you would like to create this year. 2013 is looking to be an exciting and creative Year!  Now lets get those ideas going!!!
