I’m running out of “rocking” expressions, so this is going to have to be my final Alt Summit post. I just want to tell you guys how my Design Camp (the whole reason I was able to attend Alt in the first place!) went and share a few pictures!

I was a little bit nervous, but I came well prepared. I also had a chance to attend Rachel Faucett‘s Design Camp just prior to mine, so I had a good feel for the classroom before starting my session. I also got to sew on my first Bernina and oh, my, oh my! It was like butter. We have sworn off big purchases until all credit card debt is paid off, but a Bernina is now at the top of my list!
After lunch, it was time for my session!

It was a fairly intimate group of about a dozen women, and they gave me a really sweet, warm welcome. Here is a picture of me pointing and speaking with great authority.
And here are the pretty fabric squares all laid out and ready to become yo-yos.
The class hard at work!

And the final projects! I loved all of the color combos, and I really love that several of the women took the idea and ran with it. We had yo-yos in the hair, on bags, on super long chains! I share a lot of ideas on the blog, but I don’t often get to see what happens with those ideas once I throw them out into the world. It’s really cool when I do get that chance!
Thanks so much to everyone who attended the Design Camp and big, big thanks to Kollabora and Bernina for the amazing opportunity!
By the way, if you wish you could have taken this class, you can download the the full PDF instructions on Kollabora.
And if you live in the Orange County, SoCal area, and you’d like to actually attend a yo-yo necklace workshop with me, I’ll be doing this again at The Makery on March 13th! You can get full details and sign up here.
