Private Quilt Coaching! from Lisa H Calle's Blog

I am so excited that I can barely contain my excitement! The past few months have been challenging to say the least. We are all in a similar boat… our quilt shows have been cancelled which means that all of those classes that we all signed up for just went POOF! So what’s a quilter to do… we turn to our online options. Sometimes these are good and other times not so good. I have the perfect solution!

Private quilt coaching… you are in your studio, I am in mine and we come up with a game plan specific ...

Memories of my Father & Designing from Where Art & Life Meet

My father was born and raised in Paris. And though he was Swiss, his first language was French. When he moved to the United States, he brought with him his preference for all things Swiss, he claimed the products produced there were far superior, and his love of the French language. So he would have… Continue reading Memories of my Father & Designing

NYC, Designing & “Good” Ideas from Where Art & Life Meet

The other day my husband and I had a socially distanced, mask-wearing get-together with friends. Okay, so we didn’t keep our masks on once we were seated the acceptable, government authorized 6 feet apart from one another, but we behaved responsibly. Why am I feeling that I need to add something like – “no really,… Continue reading NYC, Designing & “Good” Ideas

Following Instructions & Other Random Thoughts from Where Art & Life Meet

I’m not very good at following instructions. There. I said it. And here’s the kicker. Even when they’re my instructions, I still find it difficult. You see, there’s a playful, fun loving, always curious voice inside my head saying to me, “yeah, but wouldn’t it be more fun if we did it this other way?”… Continue reading Following Instructions & Other Random Thoughts

Sleepless In New York City from Where Art & Life Meet

On yet another night of sleeplessness I decided it was high time I found out where the whole – count sheep and fall asleep – idea originated. Which, oddly, led me to the discovery of Goats Parkour and the fact that sea otters love to eat sea urchin, which, as facts go, is kind of… Continue reading Sleepless In New York City

Creating Anyway from Where Art & Life Meet

This is the title of my latest YouTube video where I talk about how easy it is to talk oneself out of creating something new. Ever had the experience of thinking – “I’m going to design something new, I don’t know what yet, but something!” and then you sit down and suddenly you’re thinking about… Continue reading Creating Anyway

1,000 YouTube Subscribers and Some Gratitude from Where Art & Life Meet

Eight weeks ago today, I posted my first video to the YouTube Channel I created, On the Other Hand. Yesterday I hit 1,000 subscribers! What began as an idea to benefit Left Handed people who love to sew and hand stitch, has grown into a much larger more all encompassing vision and where I demonstrate… Continue reading 1,000 YouTube Subscribers and Some Gratitude

Phew… a lot going on from Lisa H Calle's Blog

HI all,

To say that the last month has been crazy is a complete understatement.  I’m sure just like me you have days that are good and days that are bad.  I feel like I am on a crazy rollercoaster of emotions and I can’t get off the ride.

Many of you are like me… have your own business and are hoping that you can survive not only the virus but that your business will survive this as well.  Trying to explain to your children what is going on adds to the stress we are all feeling.

I ...

“Don’t have a creative Bone in your Body” from Lisa H Calle's Blog

So its not secret that the past year has been a bit of a challenge…. divorce, moving etc.  It really takes it toll on how creative you are.  I have always been the type of person that takes her time with all of my projects… thinking that each one is a  masterpiece.  A creative rut is no place to be!  So how do you get out of it. Many of you have given great advice in the past…. step away, work on a simple project, knit or crochet etc…. I listened to this podcast on my way to teach in ...
