Hopefully you have heard by now my "talk" went very well! I am so grateful for all the kind words, encouragement and enthusiasm this community sent my way in the days leading up to the engagement. It feels so great to know I have taken down my fear of public speaking and can honestly say I am really looking forward to the next opportunity. 

In the meantime, I will keep myself busy putting the finishing touches on the design workshop I have been teasing you with for several months now. If you have pre-registered, you will be receiving an email Thursday with more details on how you can register for my first master class which we are officially calling Andrea's Master Class or A.M.C. which coincidentally are my actual initials. It's like it was meant to be!

Unanswered questions from the live stream
Question #1: Tina asks, for free motion quilting and embroidery, what type of foot do you use on your Janome DC 2012? 

Answer: I actually don't quilt; but, am seriously considering joining the Cabin Branch Quilt Guild as I am so impressed with their service to our community. I am hoping one of our fellow creative geniuses' will be able to answer your question and as such have included it in the email. 

Question #2: Ashley asks, what is the new iron that you received and how much does it cost? 

Answer: I will be debuting my brand new Oliso Pro TG1600 Smart Iron in Yellow on the Sewspire YouTube channel this week and am very excited to use it for the first time. The best price I could find was at JoAnn's for $139.99, reg. $199.99.

Question #3: Carlotta asks, could I make and sell products using your patterns or teach classes at my local quilt shop using them?

Answer: Absolutely! If you have time, we'd love to see some photos of your finished goods using #sewspire and @sewspire on Instagram and Facebook. 

Please submit your questions to and we will do our best to answer those on the next live stream or subsequent newsletter.
