    Good to hear it's not a bad reason she is giving up sewing. How exciting it will be to go through the fabric!! Have fun!

    Hey! everyone, I seem to remember that when someone has the "sewing" bug be it sewing, quilting or anything else, they will come back to it, may be awhile but they do come back!!

    Oh, thats great, sorry to hear she is giving it up though, but you are lucky to get it. I think she deserves a nice quilt made from her fabric. grin

    Well...good for you but I'm sad for your sister at having to give it up. You'll make something beautiful with it though!

    You might remind her you will share "her" fabric when she gets the quilting bug again, like when she retires! How nice she thought of you.

    ooh how generous of her. She sounds a lovely lady who likes to give. I would think that she never made herself a quilt so, as someone else has said, a lovely thankyou would be a quilt from her fabric with a note to say you'll share when she feels to time is right to quilt again.

    Just like a sister if you ask me. Mine came from her in a round about way. when she passed her children wanted the quilts but not the sewing machine. It was a bernina 930 and I loved it. fixed it several times and husband this past valentines day surprised me with a bernina aurora 430 and I'm pleased to say the 930 went to neices who are just starting to sew and quilt !! Enjoy and a very Happy Healthy Blest New Year.

    Sorry to loose a sewer but wonderful for you. Enjoy the treadle machine. I had one years ago with all the atachments and sold it, stupid of me. Didn't realiaze the value of it.
