Catching up with Elizabeth Barton

Elizabeth Barton’s piano-playing-french-speaking-clog-dancing-life.

Is anyone else wondering how Elizabeth Barton is getting on with her challenges?

“Surprisingly well and I really enjoy it too – it’s just a half hour a day – 6 lessons and I’m up to that first Gymnopiedes of SAtie – horrible chords in the left hand, but I’m getting there…learning about isolated practice which works surprisingly well!!”

Quilt University whom I’ve taught with online for 3 years or so is closing due to the very sad and sudden death of the principal owner, so I’m switching to the Academy of Quilting and hope to have several new classes.  I prepared all year for a workshop entitled Abstract Art for Quiltmakers which I just gave at Arrowmont School of Art and Craft in the Smokies …..and it went really well – so I’m going to turn it into an online class, as well as doing it again on Cape Cod in October and at the Alegre retreat resort (Colorado) next April.

I’m also teaching in France in June –  with a translator of course!!  I think that’s going to be great fun.  I’m hoping to stay in Paris for a couple of weeks and go to see Giverny, Chartres cathedral, the Bayeux tapestry, museums and I hope a river trip on the Seine too!!
