July 8 2009 Quilting Newsletter


Hi all, itís cold and wet and windy outside my window today. Itís the middle of winter for me, and the weather is performing its role perfectly. Mind you, winter in the sub-tropics is pretty bearable. We only put the heater on occasionally, if we are cold, we put another top on.

Iíve had a great day today. We had our monthly craft group that meets at the local Library. About 40 ladies attended and it was very noisy and the air filled with lots of laughing and good vibes. We enjoyed a great show and tell with a great range of fantastic creations. Itís a joy to be part of a group that just enjoys each otherís company, and the ladies are keen to see this gathering occur every second week from next year. So Iíll be doing my darnedest to achieve this for the group. Do you belong to a craft group? Iíd love to hear about your group. Pop over to the Forum and tell us what your group is like.

Over at the forum I received a simply wonderful email from EthalMay, describing what she is doing with her patchwork and quilting in these tough times. It was a pleasure to read this email and it certainly gave me the motivation to do more for others. Hereís the forum link for you to read EthalMayís comment.

On Sunday I posted a wonderful interview with Kathy Adams, a really clever professional long arm quilter from Toowoomba, Australia. Kathy was very honest and forthright with her answers to my questions, and really enjoyed getting to know her. Kathy also has a fantastic website, where she has some amazing patterns available. Hereís the link to that article for you to enjoy:
