I was very excited to hear this morning that my workshop on the Expressive Stitch next month has already sold out, and there is a waiting list! I am hoping the festival will add a second one, but, oops, just felt a wave of performance anxiety wash over me. I must remind myself that stitchers are such a lovely bunch of people, and getting together will be so inspiring and fun that there's nothing to be nervous about. This workshop is part of the annual Gabriola Island of the Arts Festival - there is an amazing lineup of workshops in writing, performing, permaculture, music, visual art, and more. If you are in the neighbourhood, you should come and play! Or make it a destination visit - Gabriola has lots of accommodations, good restaurants and beautiful scenery.
