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.
