Anne Smithies

Anne Smithies has just come out with a new DVD! I posted about Anne earlier this year. While Anne was acting as our resident 'Art Quilter' on our last machine quilter retreat, she came up with this really fun beach hut project. We were so impressed that we suggested (read 'begged!) that Anne make a DVD to show her technique. Anne is a liberating person to be around. When I watch her work I realize that I can do this too. I am empowered to incorporate new ways of quilting in my own projects.

Ann has bags of talent; beading, glass work, felting, all manner of arts and crafts. I'm grateful that she is currently focusing on machine quilting!! Anne also has a uniquely talented family. Among other things, they sing, dance, play instruments, produce multimedia projects... So they put their collective talents together and came up with a DVD that features Anne's Beach Hut project. Best of all they completed it in time for us to take to Houston! Don't worry - you don't have to go to Houston to get a copy. The Beach Hut DVD can be purchased directly from Anne's website: We can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
