A Fun Day Was Had By All
Yesterday, I had the great privilege of teaching a One Day Machine Quilting Class at the Misty Mountain Quilters Guild retreat in Helen, Georgia. I had 15 WONDERFUL students who worked hard and improved greatly by the end of the day. My favorite part of this workshop is when the students bring their un-quilted tops and we talk about how they might quilt them. They stretched my imagination some this time, but as usual, the group came up with excellent ideas. I have asked them to email photos when their quilt is finished....hope they will remember to do it.
The guild has almost 200 members, with 74 being present at the 3 day retreat. As I always expect with quilters, they were warm, hospitable and HAPPY ladies. Thank you for making the day so enjoyable for me!!!
The retreat held a Name Tag Contest with each retreat goer being given a month that they had to represent in their name tag. There were some very imaginative tags, including a 3 dimensional Hot Dog on one for July and a kite shape for March.
Well done ladies!!!
On another note, I had a chance to sew with a Bernina Stitch Regulator and LOVED how it worked. Now I have to start saving my pennies to buy one in 10 or so years!!!
Bye for now.
