But there was NOTHING to be nervous about with these quilters!
We are in two LARGE rooms ---the ladies were divided into 2 groups ---don’t worry we kept friends who came together with each other, we are not into separating folks who want to sew with their besties!
I spent yesterday with Group A ---doing the pieced background while Mickey was busy with group B, giving them her wonderful class on the pieced hexie rosettes. I kept peeking over there to see what fun they were having!
Today we will do the switcheroo – the students get to stay in their places through the whole event – WE, the teachers, are rotating! I’m really excited to spend today with Group B!
A happier group of quilters I have never seen ---hands down--
Four of my machines are here and giving hours of pleasure to those who traveled long distances and didn’t want to risk bringing a machine. THIS makes me happy too!
I love seeing what the students have brought – nifty notions and tools and gadgets….but don’t mess with Mary --
We were trimming seams, I turned around there Mary weilding this honking huge pair of sheers --- HOLY COW!
Okay, Mary --- how did you get these past the Canadian US Border, and what’s more…HOW are you going to get them back across? LOL ! These belonged to a family member way back. This family member was a dressmaker and seamstress, and the scissors date from 1890. They hold a sharp edge forever and cut like butter!
But take it from me….do NOT Mess with Mary or her fabric!!
I took a ton of pictures –these are in no certain order, just through the day as the day went on….And tomorrow, we do it again!
