    No! Seriously--the quilts where just breathtaking--kept muttering to myself "look at that! WOW!"--and I wore out before I even saw everything!
    Couldn't get any buddies to go with me for the first 2 days of the EVENT--I wanted to take a couple of long arm classes and couldn't be there on Friday-Sunday due to home stuff.

    Your sampler is coming along beautifully. I sent a message, stating that the "Famers's Puzzle" block is very similar to a quilt our church group hand quilted for my girlfriend. We did not know the name and sisnce I have misplaced my camera could not post a picture. When it is found I will do so. Happy Quilting!!

    I just found this video on YouTube, which I feel can be VERY helpful to anyone buying a new sewing machine.
    He shows why you shouldn't buy a "big box store" machine. I just felt it may help save some heartaches and wallet woes.
