It made me ALMOST want to do something fiber-arty with them….but nahhhhh! LOL!
We had a great group of ladies yesterday – some from as far away as Utopia ---doesn’t Utopia sound like a wonderful place to live?
And I have to tell you this funny story ---because it’s happened to me. I’ve gone off and brought my machine, leaving a crucial bit behind…..
One time I showed up to teach at a state wide event to do a demo. The last thing I had done was put on a binding. So I arrived --- -with my WALKING FOOT on the machine, my 1/4” foot at home. It happens.
And as it happens, our sweet gal brought her machine, but left her cord plugged into the wall at home ---no cord, no power.
And she was going to be happy to “just be here and work on hexies” …….
Fast forward about 20 minutes and as I’m walking around the room I talk to another gal about her featherweight:
We have a white featherweight in common, and I always like to know how folks acquired theirs. This sweet woman starts telling me that she had a dream last night that her white featherweight died in the middle of class. So when she got up in the morning she put her “spare” black machine in the car JUST IN CASE.
And just that fast – I told her about our other student who wasn’t sewing by machine because she had no cord……and with in 20 minutes that second featherweight was being loaned to Miss Cordless, and all was well with the world!
You might think this is an unusual scenario, but what made it even more fun --- I was telling Miss Cordless to just hang on, someone would have a second machine for her, and she looked at me like I had two heads ----Who would bring a spare machine to a class?
LOTS OF US! Hahahaha!
And it was neat ---because this was the first time she had ever sewn on a featherweight, and I bet she is the owner of one within a short span of time after how much fun she had yesterday. It was good ALL AROUND!!
Here’s our slide show! these gals were Quilting Divas! SO much progress made in a one day class.
At the back end of the slide show you will see some photos during show and tell at the guild meeting last night as well. We had a great group of visitors and filled that room!
