    I have a quilting friend who just became blind and would like to tell her about this woman but the link doesn't take me to any story about her. Can you point me in the right direction.

    I sent Diane Rose a email and she answered me back. Now that is even more amazing she answers whoown emails. I told her I wanted to meet her. She told me where she was going to be at the festival and sent me her ### so I can get in contact with her. I am really looking forward to meeting her on Saturday. :wink: :D :D :D
