Guess who is one of those ambassadors...me! I am so excited and one lucky lady. To be involved with a really amazing fabric company and designers is going to be an incredible experience for me. I keep thinking there was a mistake and I'm just dreaming! Nope. It's real...yay!

Benartex Fabrics Announces 2023 Ambassadors
I had to send them a photo of myself. Because I avoid the camera whenever possible, I had Ron take a more current pic of me. It was torture, but this is the result.
I had to send in a bio, too:
Carol Swift grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada, where she learned to sew by watching her mother make clothes and quilts. As a young wife and mother, Carol sewed clothes for herself and four children. As her skills improved, she began sewing prom and wedding dresses for family and friends. She eventually moved more towards creating quilts and started a blog in 2008, Just Let Me Quilt, to keep track of them. This evolved into her hosting blog hops and sewing projects for several fabric companies. She enjoys designing quilts, especially Halloween ones, and teaches applique classes at a local quilt store. Carol and two of her friends share a Halloween Facebook page, Cackling Stitches, where they host block of the month projects. Ron, her husband of 50 years, is a huge supporter of her quilting adventures and willingly stands in unusual or high places to hold quilts for photos
This is the list of ambassadors...wow!

One of the first times I sewed for Benartex was in 2017 and it was for a blog hop. It was the cutest fabrics by Cherry Guidry of Cherry Blossoms Quilting called "My Little Sunshine."
It all starts happening in 2023...I can't wait!
