    A couple of my friends went Friday, and by Saturday when we met up with about 15 other friends to sew for the day at a fire station, she had made a DVD of 300 pics of the show. How nice to see so many quilts since I could not go Hope you had fun.

    "Great meeting Charisma. Her quilts are even more stunning in person. If you have a quilt top quilted by her, you have a true piece of art!"

    I too was thrilled to meet a visit with her. Had a great time hearing about adventures in Leavenworth and "picking her fantastically talented brain" regarding her Innova. The expo was fabulous and the quilts were amazing. 248 photos- and that just of the ones my mother in law and I liked....was truly a day filled with "eye candy". Can't wait for MQX West next month.

    Thanks Charisma!

    Also...huge thanks to feline fanatic for all her advise regarding long arm choices...I did a little practicing on the Innova per your suggestions and it is a fantastic machine. Now just have to decide by the middle of October whether to take the leap and change brands.

    Exciting stuff!

    The Angle Play blocks were wonderful. I was so pleased to see the whole display of them. Now I want to get back to designing some quilts using angle play.

    And it was great meeting so many of you!
