Island Batik Ambassador 2020

I am excited to announce that I am an Island Batik Ambassador for 2020!  I am so honored to be working with Island Batik for a second year.  Being an Ambassador last year was one of the best things I've done creatively--the monthly challenges really pushed me and I created things I would never have dreamed of a few months before.  I'm excited to for 12 more challenges!

My first of two ambassador boxes has arrived and I've already been at work, sewing away!  I'll have an unboxing video and report of all the goodies on January 24th.  The January challenge is scraps and my project is my first finish of 2020; I hope to be ready to post it in a few days.

There are twenty-five Ambassadors this year.  You can see this incredibly talented group on Island Batik's page, or here is the list of where to find each of us and our monthly projects with the gorgeous Island Batik fabrics!
