YOKE DU YOUR

dogs-on-a-plane

Tony and Esther are flying to Australia for a two-week vacation to celebrate their 40th anniversary. Suddenly, over the public address system, the Captain announces, “Ladies and Gentlemen, I am afraid I have some very bad news. Our engines have ceased functioning and we will attempt an emergency landing. Luckily, I see an uncharted island below us and we should be able to land on the beach. However, the odds are that we may never be rescued and will have to live on the island for the rest of our lives!”

Thanks to the skill of the flight crew, the plane lands safely on the island. An hour later Tony turns to his wife and asks, “Esther, did we pay our $5,000 PBS pledge check yet?”

“No, sweetheart,” she responds.

Tony, still shaken from the crash landing, then asks, “Esther, did we pay our American Express card yet?”

“Oh, no! I’m sorry. I forgot to send the check,” she says.

“One last thing, Esther. Did you remember to send checks for the Visa and MasterCard this month?” he asks.

“Oy, forgive me, Tony,” begged Esther. “I didn’t send that one, either.”

Tony grabs her and gives her the biggest kiss in 40 years. Esther pulls away and asks him, “What was that for?”

Tony answers, “They’ll find us!”

Mark Lipinski has the prescription for
better, more mindful quilting. 

Slow and Steady, Forget the Race

imageplaceholder Vivika Hansen DeNegre
Editorial Director, Quilting Arts
QuiltingDaily.com

What do you get out of fiber and quilting arts? A pile of quilts? An expression of your creativity? A way to escape the world? An excuse to go to the fabric store?

As quilting artists, we all have our reasons–and they’re all valid.

For me, quilting, sewing, and other fiber arts serve as outlets for creativity, ways to relax and unburden my mind, and even practical pursuits (making gifts and decor).

But sometimes, the number of projects on my table–or in my head–can stress me out. I’ve heard other quilters say that seeing what other quilt artists post on social media causes them anxiety: they feel like they are ‘behind’ somehow. And the sheer number of tools, fabrics, kits, patterns, and supplies to choose from for art quilting can be overwhelming.

Over the years I’ve found that, instead of looking for shortcuts or adding more projects or supplies, the best way to approach my fiber art is to slow down and simplify.

Mindful creating, or paying close attention to what you’re doing. how you are doing it, and the materials you’re using, can help you regain the “Zen” of your favorite pastime. Not to mention how much better your results will be.

This is the message quilter and personality Mark Lipinski is trying to promote with his “Slow Stitching Movement.” Mark has been lecturing on the topic for about a year now. Judging by the enthusiastic reception for the topic, many in the quilt community crave ways to slow down and enjoy their quilting again

Mark makes it clear that there will always be a place for the get ‘er done project or the jelly roll strip quilt. But he wants to bring back the joys and benefits of losing yourself in a project by giving it all your care and attention.

Here are some of Mark’s Slow Stitching tips:

Pause and reflect. Take a couple of minutes before you hit the sewing machine pedal to think about your project, what you’re trying to accomplish, and to consider the tools and materials you are using. Consciously breathe in and out to prepare yourself for the work ahead.

Stitch intentionally. There are times when it’s good to just practice, doodle, and play with fabrics with no particular plan. When you slow stitch, think about what you want to accomplish with your stitching and focus on it intently.

Give it 20 minutes a day. You don’t have to slow stitch all the time, for every project. In fact, Mark says you may not actually enjoy your slow stitching at first: your mind will want to wander over to the 10 other things you ‘should’ be doing right now, how hungry you are, or what your best friend might be up to. Like anything else worth doing, you might need to practice. That’s why Mark recommends giving over just 20 minutes a day to slow stitching. The goal is to make it a habit.

There is so much more to The Slow Stitching Movement: how it can improve your quilting, encourage your to create a legacy quilt, benefit your health, even strengthen your relationships!

Mark will tell you all about it in a new version of Mark Lipinski Presents The Slow Stitching Movement Creating, Promoting, and Sustaining a New Vision in Quiltmaking, a live webinar, April 15, 2015, at 1 p.m. ET.Mark’s Slow Stitching events have been sell-outs, so earn more below and register now.

Mark Lipinski Presents…
The Slow Stitching Movement
Creating, Promoting and Sustaining a New Vision in Quiltmaking Live Web Seminar
Quick, fast, easy.  In our busy multitasking world, those buzzwords capture our attention.  But speed can kill creativity and the enjoyment of our creative pursuits.Maybe what we really need to do is slow down, enjoy the process and create fiber art that we’re really proud of.  But how?
Lipinski

This ILLUMINATING live web seminar introduces a revolution within the quilting industry, The Slow Stitching Movement, launched by international quilting personality Mark Lipinski.  With Mark as your inspiration and guide, this web seminar will prepare you for a higher form of creativity and important quiltmaking.

If you’ve hit a creative wall, if you have more fabric and notions than you do inspiration, if all of your quilts are beginning to look alike, or if you’ve been quilting for years and have nothing wonderful to show for it . . . The Slow Stitching Movement is for you.

What you’ll learn at this web seminar:
Approach your quiltmaking in a totally different way
Recharge your passion for patchwork
Engage the connection between your body, your quilts and your legacy
Expand your creativity, self-esteem and even your spiritual journey
Create groups and habits to support your creative vision.
Tap your right brain, to train and develop your imagination.
Find the creative genius in you.
Implement your creative thought in today’s too-fast world.
Heal your life, emotions and boost your physical health.

Several months ago, Facebook, without warning, had implemented a new business model. As a result, the vast majority of “LIKErs” who have been faithful readers of this Fan Page have been blocked from receiving my posts, time and time again, from getting all or a few of the postings onto their timeline feed.

The reason is, Facebook would like pages like, Mark Lipinski’s Fan Page, to pay money every day, and on every post, in order to advertise and lure readers like you, onto the Fan Page.

With out “BOOSTING” a post, only about 5% of people who clicked LIKE on MARK LIPINSKI’S FAN PAGE are actually seeing anything I post — and it could be random – sometimes you get a post, and sometimes not. Basically, it sucks for all of us. I am finding that we are all better served if I posted my tips, ideas, links, and jokes, etc. to this blog. You can subscribe to this blog (only if you want to) to get an email each time I post a grouping of ideas, links, etc. and never miss a chance at inspiration.

Travel with Mark from his boyhood home in Pittsburgh, to San Francisco, Miami, New York, Chicago and New Jersey to learn how each of these places led him to become the quilt master he is today.

    Mark, I love your blog — always looking for it when I check my e-mail.Your section on crewel embroidery pillow by mellow_stuff on Flickr reminded me of another blog I recently started receiving — you might want to check it out. A lady from South Africa, Di Van Niekerk, makes and teaches silk ribbon embroidery and also shows the work of other ribbon embroiderers on her blog. Incredibly beautiful and periodically she sends free instructions for doing particular flowers, etc. Her website is: http://www.dicraft.co.za and she also has a photo section showing beautiful pictures of the area of South Africa where she lives.
