I am the owner of the Bright Morning Star Bed and Breakfast and Quilt Retreat Center. I love having quilters come and finally have time to work on their projects. I like to have between 8-10 people. There are some back road places I suggest to search for really good buys on material. One place has Batiks for $6.59 a yard. Another Amish gal has 108 inch printed backing for $5.75 a yard and cheaper if you buy the bolt.
I live among the Amish and know some that still do wonderful
To all those who have been sooooo kind sending me packages for the NEWBIE to get started with Quilting. Your kindness is beyond words. My heart felt thanks to you all.
