I’m BACK! But first I went to Cleveland.

So much has been happening with My Sassy Notions and I have neglected this blog. I’m hoping to rectify that.

Instead of filling you in on my adventures, I thought I would just pick up where I am and sprinkle a little history in here and there. The one thing you need to know is that I am now a Promoted Instructor for Sew Steady®. I focus on the Westalee Design Ruler Foot and Templates.


This past weekend I had the pleasure of doing an in-store event at Kathy’s Creative Sewing Center in Westlake, Ohio. I love the opportunity to meet and work with quilters around the country. The morning started with a demo and Q&A. Everyone was so nice and excited to see the products up close. I will admit there is a touch of intimidation when you have 60 eyes watching your every move. Breathe, just breathe.

After lunch, I guided everyone through a Make and Take project which magically produced a coaster. I had a great time; I hope the attendees did as well. The questions kept flying and I stayed to make sure everyone got theirs answered.

Later, Kathy took me out for a fabulous seafood dinner. We chatted about the great product lines of Sew Steady® and tentative plans for me to return. A successful event is one where both the customers and store owners are happy at the end of the day. This was, without a doubt, a SUCCESS.

It’s not rocket science to create a successful event, but it does take imagination, planning, flexibility, and communication. Kathy and I made a great team; I’m looking forward to working with her and her staff in the future. If you’re in the area, you should really drop in her store and say hi.
