    Mini retreat in my home.

    The lady on the right is a recent widow. I've been teaching her quilting to keep her busy. She and a second friend spent the day at my house making a jelly roll race quilt. The lady on the left had terrible problems with her sewing machine until we changed thread. She had a spool of Sulky and her machine did not like it. Many thanks to all here on the board who have said their machines don't like certain threads. I would not have known how to help her if I hadn't seen it here. They didn't get quilt done but were both trilled at the start.

    I promise not to buy any more fabric until I see something I really like. Or it's on sale. Or I think it might match something.

    What a wonderful thing for you to do for others. You have given them a purpose, and I can't think of a more fun purpose than quilting. Hurray for you.

    It can be frustrating to problem solve but when you do get through it then it feels so satisfying to know you figured out the problem!

    Looks like you all enjoyed the afternoon! I believe quilting is for sharing so I applaud you for sharing your love of quilting!

    What a great way to help your friend. Do you think she'll get the quilting bug?

    isn't it great having a round table sew-in. We have a group that meets every Tues. and sometimes it's too lean on each others shoulders. Nothing like quilting buddies
