I have been browsing through the Fall Creativ Festival brochure. What a wonderful variety of classes being offered. If you live within driving distance of Toronto consider attending this great event. Take a look at the class selection:  www.creativfestival.ca  It is a big brochure so you need time to browse, I just printed the pages I was interested in.

You will see that EAC is taking part again. We attended in the Spring and we were amazed at the interest shown in our booth.  We are again having a booth and teaching classes during the show. Any EAC members who are attending and who would be willing to help at the booth please contact Lisa at:  communications@eac.ca   She will be delighted to have your assistance and will slot you in for a time convenient for you.

At the booth, we will be showcasing the benefits of being an EAC member and displaying examples of our members' work and examples of the correspondence classes. We have EAC members teaching classes. Lorene Salt, Carolyn Mitchell, Kim Beamish and Pat Armour are teaching for us. We are also holding an ATC  Round Robin class taught by Colleen Darling, Lisa Carlin and me. ATC's were very popular at our booth in the Spring, so we decided to share our techniques.

I am pleased to be helping with this class as it will get me started with my cards for the EAC exchange in February 2012. This exchange will be hosted by Aldernay Needlearts Guild. Watch for details on the web-site and in EC magazine. Summer is a good time for small outside projects. I find I can turn little bits of stitching, UFO's, doodle cloths and special little pieces of fabric into ATC's sitting on the deck. ATC's  remain very popular and if you have never made one, how about making just one for this next exchange? To get some ideas look at the cards from previous years posted on the EAC  web-site. Let's make 2012 the best year yet for ATC's.

Take time this week to enjoy your stitching. Think about what you are stitching and who you are stitching for. This week, forget about the deadlines we all make for ourselves with our stitching, and enjoy the process.
