    WAY cool!! We will be watching to see what she creates.
    Whatever it is will be very valuable when she brings it back home.
    Thanks for sharing the article with us.

    I thought I saw a spider,
    But it was just a Piece of yarn.
    It's dead yarn now.

    Dr. Jan Davis was the first quilter in space. She took a quilt block with her on one of her missions. She was on Simply Quilts showing and discussing her quilt block.

    Simply Quilts was Alex Anderson's show on HGTV. Here is a link- just search for the topic you want. http://media.hgtv.com/HGTV/newslette...uilts/vol_001/

    I give up- I used to be able to go to the SQ site and get full episodes, but apparently not any more. Tried google- nothing but dead ends. Anyone else able to provide a direct link to the full episode?

    I searched and couldn't find it either. Thanks for trying Monroe.

    Karen went to the same school I did. I graduated in 1957. She graduated in 1988.

    So cool.
    I'll bet you could teach her a thing or two about quilting!
