Madeline Island School of the Arts is one of the top 5 arts and crafts schools in the country and is located on one of the Apostle Islands in Lake Superior. But, if you can't make it to Madeline Island, they also offer the same caliber of classes in Tucson, AZ and Santa Fe, NM. Which opens up so many more opportunities for us stitchers, creators, quilters and artists to expand our talents in beautiful settings.
This past week I joined 23 other stitchers to learn from one of the master stitchers, Sue Spargo!
And, if you can encourage friends to attend at the same time, you may experience a stitching journey that you will never forget!
This particular class was perfect for me, giving me a lot more confidence in my skill and choices. I think taking a class that is 5 days long allows you to freak out, then relax and get into the rhythm. Because when you first see one of Sue's creations you may wonder if you are in the wrong class! Her stitching is amazing and so inspiring.
But an added gift is learning not only from Sue, but your fellow classmates...you are inspired by those who are more experienced...and also by those who think outside the box...
Stay tuned and travel along with us on Quilt Roadies.

Sue is the most amazing folk artist! Such a lovely lady and a terrific teacher! Took a class in Santa Fe with my sister-in-law. We learned so much and met so many interesting ladies.

I'd like to take an extended workshop with Sue Spargo, also with Mary Lou Weidman,who stitch such appealing folk art.
I was fortunate enough to attend Mary Ellen Hopkins' Neighborhhod Seminars in Indianapolis for several years. Mary Ellen (dec.2013) was in an incredibly talented, creative,charis matic teacher & author. From Wednesday to Sunday afternoon,to be in her company, & with other like-minded stitchers was so energizing & such fun.I would come home with about a million ideas for future projects.I have almost all of her books;& every one has sketches & notes stuck in between the pages.
