Charlotte just a thought.Your classes could be a book along with recipes from your friend.I know I would purchase it.Or perhaps online classes.I love your other books.


It looks like a wonder filled day!


omg, do your students even know how lucky they are? those cup cozies are simply gorgeous.

I was so inspired by your photos of the class projects that I ran right over to our Salvation Army store to look for wool sweaters to felt. Much to my dismay, I was only able to find ONE 100% wool sweater! So, I am wondering if you have a source for pre-felted re-cycled sweaters? I'm thinking that might be something someone could sell, if they have better luck finding wool sweaters in their area.


You can also try sweaters that have other content mixed in. Mostly wool will still felt- usually. (Its always an experiment.)

Im planning to put together some sweater wool kits for smaller projects in the next week or so. Stay tuned!


(having trouble posting a comment again ARGH! hurray for cut and paste!)

Oh Charlotte! Everything sounds so lovely and thank you for sharing all the wonderful images from the day! Your post makes me so eager to start taking classes again. Many years ago I took lots of embroidery classes and our original group just bonded and we continued together through all of the offered classes - so much fun!
Happy happy weekend to you! Hope Maggie is all recovered now!

Love this wish I were there. Is there a pattern for those adorable tea cup cozies?


What a beautiful post and a fun day! I "know" 2 of your art girls from blogging, Loretta and Melissa!
I also heard about Rebecca's "Haiti by Hand" shop and just sold an item which is shipping out today inspite of a snowstorm. YOur book, "Mothers and Daughters together has meant a lot to me, my daughter and granddaughter!


Wow! All such adorable stuff! I love the coffee cozies. I wish I lived near you so I could go to a session!

Charlotte - Oooooh, Aaaah and Ohhhhh! Wow, your pictures of the day are enough to make me drool. I want to be princess for a day, too! I must make the trip (from near Nashville) to NY to attend one of your classes. The many women who contributed must have been delighted to know how many smiles occured because of their many sweet treats. Thank you for taking the time to have these sessions - they can make a big girl's dream come true, too! :)

Sue McGettigan

What a truly fabulous day, every little detail looks so wonderful!


Finally able to spend time looking at the photos from you class and reading the comments. #1 - love love the coffee cozies - and seeing cozy Roxy enjoying it all!

Someone mentioned a book idea -- hmmm?!

You continue to inspire and amaze me dear friend. And Suzanne has such an unending wealth of talent!
