Summer is roaring by!

Here we are in August, and while the heat is on outside,
there is a feeling that Autumn is not far off.
(Which I have to admit is my favorite time of year!)

My outdoor art festivals are complete for the year but there are still
many fun things on the schedule in the next few months.

I'll be in Edmonton, Canada performing at the wonderful theater
festival Aug 14th-25th. If you happen to be in or near the area
I hope you'll come check out our production The Master and Margarita.

As soon as I return I'll be headed to a fantastic retreat in Cascade ID
where I'm lucky enough to be their instructor of the year. We'll be playing
with the Radiant Landscape technique by Gloria Loughman and
creating twice painted quilts using my favorite technique combo of
inktense pencils and thread painting.

For those who looking to play with all the beautiful fibers found in roving
these days, I'm offering my needle felting class in Polson and Kalispell.
Saturday, Sept 7th at All in Stitches in Polson
Monday, Oct 7th at The Quilt Gallery in Kalispell
(for more details click on the Current Class and Event Schedule
under the Calendar Tab)

And to cap off the season of quilt shows I'll be vending at the wonderful
Flathead Quilters Guild quilt show September 20th and 21st in Kalispell.

And then there will be our open studio event to celebrate our new building!

I hope to see you soon!

Ladybug's Cabin was awarded Best in Show at this year's Made in Montana trade show. A panel of 13 judges spent the day on Friday examining booths  and watching their owners interact with new and returning wholesale customers. They looked for eye catching displays, for unique and Montana themed products, and passionate and engaging interactions with visitors. And although there were so many seriously wonderful booths in the nearly 150 exhibitors at the show this year, it was my booth that was declared this year's winner. 

This is my 2nd year being part of the Made in Montana trade show and couldn't be more thrilled to accept this honor and recognition of my work and my enthusiasm of sharing my love of Montana through the fiber arts. Being part of the trade show has not only connected me to more stores that want to carry my products, but it has bonded me to other entrepreneurs and small businesses so we can grow and learn from one another, as well as support that growth together. Those of you who have taken classes with me know that I am a strong believer in cross pollination--if your neighbor's crop does well, it will only help yours succeed. And I know full well that my success has in large part been thanks to the love and support of you all these past 10 years. 

Here's to many more!
