Asked to speak at my local guild, I wondered if guild members would be interested in my unlikely story. The presentation I created, I’m Cuckoo for Quilting, received rave reviews from guild members, so I am making myself available to speak at your Guild or event.
I’m Cuckoo for Quilting!
With a three-decade-long career in quilting, 34-time author, originator of QNNtv.com (birthed in Smryna), HSN presenter for Accuquilt, host of Quilt It! The Longarm Quilting Show and co-host with Mark Lipinski of Quilt Out Loud, Jodie Davis thought quilting would be her profession forever. But three years ago Jodie left QNNtv.com when it was sold, said goodbye to her friends at her last Quilt Market, and hasn’t sewn a quarter-inch seam since. Not in fabric anyway.
In her image-filled presentation (yes, there will be quilts!) Jodie provides a peek into the ups and downs of being a professional in the quilting industry, how she has reinvented herself within quilting via unlikely channels such as rubber duckies, and how quilting inadvertently gave her the new business she needed when three years ago, single, she had to start over. A visit to tape a show in a cuckoo clock factory in Germany half a dozen years earlier turned into the business she needed to support herself and her horses on her little farm in Hickory Flat,. Just back from Frankfurt and the debut of her cuckoo clocks on the international scene, Jodie will give you the first peek at her latest designs.
Jodie will share video snippets of some of her (big name) quilting friends answering the question “Why are you cuckoo for quilting?” and “Is being cuckoo a good thing?” and maybe even share what Jodie calls “a manure moment”, where quilting came to the rescue as it did for her.
Join Jodie for a celebration of being cuckoo for quilting – and life!
