    Guess what I just found!

    I was walking to the subway from work and I found 12 copies of American Quilter on the street. The issues are from the 80s and 90s. They're full of amazing pictures, stories, patterns. It felt like someone left them there just for me!

    Wow! What a great find! It will be fun to see what was hot in quilting a decade or two ago...

    Great find!! And here I thought I got lucky when a guild had a sale and I bought a mess of them ... four for a quarter. Free is always better!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    You will see how things have changed in the quilting world. Lots of changes, for the better.

    I have a really nice friend that I met on the board that has been giving me her old magazines from 2006-2012. She put a note on the board a couple of years ago, and every once in a while she will email me to pick some up. I'm talking about fifty at a time. I am loving life.
