I'm Speaking at Sewing Summit 2013

Tomorrow I'm heading to Salt Lake City for a modern blogging and sewing conference called Sewing Summit! It's a cross between a traditional sewing retreat and a social media or blogging conference and it's been sold out for weeks! This will be my very first time attending and speaking! I'm so excited!

Sewing Summit 2013

My class will be a fabric design class called "Designing Fabrics From the Heart." I've put a lot of my heart and soul into this class! I want the Sewing Summit audience to learn the basics on how to get started designing a fabric collection. I know how hard it is to be a textile designer. In the beginning no one wanted to give me a chance. I'm grateful to be where I am today and I want to be able to share and give back.

Designing Fabrics from the Heart

I want everyone to discover the designer within them by learning how to gather inspiration from the world around them, and learn how to put together the things they love to create a story board for a fabric collection.

I love color! So I'll be teaching how to cultivate color stories and how to relate them to a concept for a fabric collection. I'll also be teaching how to analyze designs to make a balanced fabric collection. Furthermore, I'll be sharing all the software necessary to make stunning designs and the  basics of different pattern repeat modes as well as recoloring methods!

Here is a sneak peak of my presentation! The audience's mind is going to be blown away with all of the images and information that I have to share!

WOW, that's not even the whole presentation! I really hope that I can fit everything into my 75 minute class. My message to every aspiring designer is:

"To be creative is to let little pieces of your heart go & place them into each project you make." - Pat Bravo

I'll be away from the blog for the rest of the week. So be sure that you follow me on my Instagram for all of the Sewing Summit action. I'll be back later next week with a recap!

Are you a blogger attending Sewing Summit this weekend? If so, give me a shout. I’d love to meet you!

Later Loves, xoxo,
