I would love to tell you that we got a whole pile of entries for the our first Community Challenge, but it simply wouldn’t be true. We did get several lovely entries, the finalists have been notified, and I look forward to seeing the projects soon!
What did arrive in my inbox was something totally unexpected. There were messages from a whole bunch of you saying you were excited, started on a Shape Shifter piece, but then got stuck somewhere along the way.
As I read through your messages, I realized that the articles I posted on the blog simply did not provide enough information for many of you to make your way successfully down the Shape Shifter path. Let’s just say I jumped the gun in posting the Challenge. Thank you for taking the time to send me a note to let me know how you were doing, and what you found “challenging.”
Now here’s the silver lining under this little grey cloud. While you were creating, and being frustrated with, your challenge pieces, we’ve been planning a big party for the new Shape Shifter Ebook. And, we will launch our very first Online Learning course right after the book is released. Between the Ebook and the Shape Shifter Class, I guarantee that you’ll learn everything you need to make fabulous fabric, and your “challenges” will be a thing of the past!
We’ve hit a few technical snags with the book and it will be coming out a little later than I expected. With Spring Quilt Market in the middle of May, the big launch will occur right around the first of June. Keep an eye on your inbox – your invitation to the big party will be here before you know it!
