Meet My Friend Alexis – And Check out Her Craftsy Class

I’d love you to meet my friend Alexis, who blogs over at Persia Lou. She’s my neighbor and running buddy and we’ve known each other for a long time. She’s a very creative person who dabbles in all sorts of crafty things: sewing, crochet, paper crafts, home decorating, and more. A few months ago, she shared about my book with her readers and today it’s my turn to introduce her to my quilty friends!


Meet Alexis from Persia Lou. She’s super crafty and fun!

When I gave Alexis a copy of Machine Quilting with Style, she picked out Rain, one of my favorite quilts from the book, and then created this awesome piece of embroidered wall art that’s a mini version of the original, made from paper, paint and thread. So clever!!

How fun is that?? We’ve been talking for awhile about doing some kind of collaboration in the future, like a quilt along/crochet along where we each make the same design, but in two different mediums. Let me know if that sounds like fun and we’ll try to organize something for later next year.

Don’t  get me wrong, Alexis can quilt like a madwoman, too. Check out these two versions of Herringbone, made from my free quilt pattern.

Now, I’m excited to share the word that Alexis recently released her first Craftsy class: Silhouette Savvy: Venture into Vinyl. In the class, Alexis teaches you how to cut and make 11 different vinyl projects using the Silhoutte Cameo machine. She’s been an ambassador for the brand for a little while, and recently went to Craftsy HQ to film her class.

We recently had great fun sharing about our Craftsy experiences on our latest run – click here to read about my recent behind the scenes experience.

If you haven’t yet checked out Craftsy’s huge library of creative classes, be sure to get started with a free mini class so you can familiarize yourself with the format. They literally have any creative class you can think of!

I’m curious – do you enjoy any creative hobbies besides quilting? Please leave me a comment and let me know!

    I used to knit some, but haven’t done it in a long time. I do cross-stitching and some embroidery. I also do some paper crafts. I had my first quilting class over 16 years ago, but life got in the way and I am trying to start again.

    I have made jewelry for about 25 years, have crocheted for over 40, knitted for about 60+ (still awful), and sew fun stuff like purses and scarves. I used to sew all my clothes and even made some wedding dresses but no more! Quilting is the one thing I love more than anything now. Started quilting 11 years ago and only dabble in the other things, still like doing them, but not like quilting. I used to cross stitch but my vision isn’t that good now.
