Two Great Trips


Dragonflies from Charlotte!


I've been on the road quite a bit this last month.I had two lovely trips, one to Charlotte and one to Lansing, MI.


I was  at Charlotte to attend the North Carolina Quilt Symposium. This event has gone on for over 20 years, run by different guilds in the state. They bring in a bevy of fabulous teachers. This is the third one I've been to over the years. It's an amazing and wonderful meeting of great and grand quilters.


I also got to share a suite with Patti Culea, who is the most fun doll maker I know.


This is such a wonderful event. More amazing is that different guilds put it on every year. 

Capitol Quilters in Lansing Michigan is a lovely group with a wide range of talents.
We did two classes, Dragonfly Sky and the Thread Magic Overview Book. Here's one of my student's fabulous dragonflies.


I also got to see my dear friend Elaine Ferris. Elaine and I went to St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Evanston for years together, but we did a lot of sewing together back when. I met her at Vogue Fabric and she's been a kindred spirit ever since. She taught me long ago that there is nothing as neat as a nice neat pile.


I always love it when I get to go and meet people at guilds and symposiums. Quilters really are the best folk in the world.
Next week, I'm off to Long Island at Smithtown Stitchers
Here's the schedule.   It's time to pack my bags. Hope to see you there!
