Why I Have NOt Been In the Studio
I have not been in my studio as much because I am taking an 8 week course in Green Bay (WI) on entrepreneurialship. I want to have a small business related to my art quilts and want to do it the RIGHT way. This photo is the cover of my text book. I am enrolled at Urban Hope Entrepreneurial Center in Green Bay and having a blast-my head explodes after each 3 hr. class from all the info I am learning. There are guest speakers from the community explaining how to write a mission statement, the legal and tax part of a small business etc. and my favorite part is marketin! so I am new to LinkedIn. I have purchased Print Shop to help me create my quilt patterns more efficiently and cost effective. My local friend, Glenda, has been kind enough to give me a 2 hr. lesson on how to do Print Shop- so now I have another obsession!! I have my 2011 Hoffman Challenge quilt finished and my Michigan Art Quilt Invitational piece finished but can't post until July went it gets closer to the mailing date because I want it to be confidential. And I've been tickering with a mixed media project which has been shelved because I had an a-ah moment that I love to sew my projects not attach fiber etc. to a canvas!! So I hug my sewing machine daily and show gratitude toward it as my favorite sewing tool!! Take care and I want to make a mermaid next!!
