As I sit here in the studio and type this letter, Ashley is at home loading her car. Early Friday morning she'll most certainly fill up my trunk and then we will be heading to South Carolina, her new home away from home. I am planning on spending at least a few days there to help her set up her apartment and such. It really seems like yesterday I was introducing her to our creative community here at Sewspire. You might recall, we set some ambitious goals when she joined the team and I am happy to say we accomplished a great many of them during her assistantship. Amongst the highlights were:
--Our Tuesday Livestream Talks
--The Sewspire Facebook Group Page
--The Studio Updates & What's in Your Mug
--Preparing for the Quilt Guild Workshop & Talk
--Launching the first AMC (Andrea's Master Class) with much success
--Introducing the Creative Chats concept
--Redesigning the website at The Fourth Seam
--Publishing this e-letter on a weekly basis
And, there are a couple of other fun things in the works that you have not yet heard about, including a new tutorial format and a new wellness initiative that I will be introducing and sharing with our community in mid August.
I think Ashley learned a lot from the experience and when I consider that we accomplished all of that in the midst of my husband's health crisis--it is even more impressive.
Now, you are probably wondering how I will manage without her and truth be told, I have been asking that question for weeks!
I will obviously have to scale things a bit and thank you in advance for your understanding.
Here's what you can expect from me going forward:
--A weekly tutorial in a brand new format beginning August 18th.
--My active presence on the Group Facebook Page.
--A weekly edition of Behind the Seams
In addition, I will be hosting a handful of Creative Chats in September and October and launching the second session of AMC with very limited seating on September 10th.
The studio updates and livestreams will be discontinued and replaced with random Facebook and Instagram TV events.
I hope that all sounds good to you and I thank you for your continued interest and enthusiasm! I want you to know it is my absolute pleasure to create and design for this community.
Until we meet again, please know the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you!
