News, News, News…

I know I have been relatively quiet as of late, but that is because I’ve mostly been writing and designing and thinking and working on things behind the scenes. I’ve wanted to share all the inside skinny, but so often one just can’t do that until all the pieces fall into place, at least all the relevant ones for a particular thing.

Well, this week a couple of pieces fell into place…

First off, I am officially joining the ranks of HandiQuilter Ambassadors. After doing a Residency out at their headquarters in Salt Lake City this past November (and dropping about 1.5 million stitches in various quilts) we have decided that we are a good fit for each other. So, I’ll be rocking some crazy Pro-Stitcher action, starting with my next big project: a series of quilts to auction in support of the YWCA for this year’s Domestic Violence Awareness Month (I may be calling in some piecing favors).

And that rapidly (and unexpectedly) lead to a second bit of awesome. I’ll be doing a Special Exhibit at AQS Quilt Week in Syracuse this summer. The exhibit will be called “The Medium and the Message: The Quilts of Thomas Knauer.” Yep, I auditioned that title this past week for the pop-up show Luke and I did down at Olde City Quilts, and I’ve decided I like it so it stuck…

So, there are a few more big things in the works, but I am happy to be able to announce these right now. I told you this was the year of kicking the proverbial arse…
