    The gals are not from this board; we met on the old Fons & Porter forum and we have remained friends ever since.... Been about 5 years now.

    Maine is wonderful. I love living here and there are many things to see ( quilt shops only being some of them! ). I hope you have a great time with your friends.

    Time with girlfriends is the best time. And then add the common joy of quilting, what more could a girl want!

    It was during a visit to Maine many years ago, that I became interested in quilting. I was very impressed with how the artists were selling their ideas and kits at a fair. I guess it would have been one of the early quilt shows and we did not have anything like that in Australia at the time. I was was amazed at the beautiful quilts that were for sale for only $150. During my journey homeward, I saw the same types of quilts for sale in California for $4,000...too late to run back to Maine.
