All-Day Fabric Class

Last Saturday, The Heartfelt Stampers Team and the From the Heart Stampers got together for an all-day event designed to create quilting projects using the Big Shot die cutting machine.  We had so much fun and learned a ton!  If you want to be included on these very special events, won't you consider joining our team?  Most of us are based in New York State, but often times, our long distance members travel to join us.  With the Sale-A-Bration special, it's a perfect time to take 15% off your starter kit and receive a free stamp set! 

We began the morning beginning to work on quilt squares.  Here's Jacki Wrubel with her beautiful creation!

Jen Rios-Raner had never sewn before and she did a fabulous job!

Here's a couple of squares I made.  This one uses the 5-Petal 3D Star Bigz die.

This one uses the center oval from Frame, Oval Scallop Bigz die, Scallop Circle #2 Bigz die and Circles #2 Originals.  Click HERE for finished quilts that these squares could be turned into.

We did some swapping, and since it was a fabric-based class, I decided to make these adorable bibs.  I traced around a bib I alread had to get the pattern.  With the boy bib, I cut the stars from the Stars #2 Originals die

Here's a baby girl's version.  The flower is cut with the Flower Bigz Clear die.

Aly Schilling brought this gorgeous swap.  She made a pin cutting the fabric from circle dies with the Big Shot.  And don't you just love her presentation!  The button in the center is from the Stampin' Up! collection, and the hat pin and pearls are from the Pretties Kit.

Missy Shipman from Baldwinsville joined us in the afternoon to tell us what she learned while attending Jill Olsen's class at Founder's Circle. 

We each made this darling purse charm!

Here's a close-up!

More from Leadership Conference 2010

Did you know that the Big Shot and all of the Bigz dies will cut through 50 different materials?  We were in for a real treat at Leadership Conference when Jill Olson displayed her incredible quilts.  Fabric was cut for all of her quilts using the Big Shot!  Here are some of Jill's beautiful creations:

At the end of the Conference, EVERYONE at the conference got to take home her own handmade quilt square — all 1000 attendees!  They were made at the Stampin' Up! home office.  Everyone brought in their own sewing machine and created these just for us!  I'll be bringing my quilt square to each of my workshops to show.

Okay, so have I piqued your interest yet?  There are so many things you can do with the Big Shot die and fabric!  Interested in hearing more?  If you live in the Finger Lakes area of New York State, give me a call or email me, and I'll be glad to come to your home for a private fabric and quilting class!  You can reach me at 585-554-4479 or
