    Karen Sienk at our guild meeting today

    Two kinds of excitement at today's quilt guild meeting... Karen Sienk gave an eye-popping trunk show. She is from Orchard Park and has won several ribbons displaying her quilts at Paducah. She was almost done, and the fire alarm went off; so we all had to evacuate the building. The police officer I spoke with said it was a sprinkler in another building, but they had to check our building anyway.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    She'll never forget that meeting! Those quilts are beautifully done, and it's good to know none of the quilts were damaged.

    So did you make a mad rush to grab the quilts or just evacuate like you are supposed to?

    I hope you got to enjoy the most of her presentation before the fire alarm...It’s always motivating to see the creativity and work of others.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    That would take years off the life of the quilter! I hope she got to do the whole presentation!

    I worked with Karen in the late 70s. Neither of us were quilters then. We were underemployed clerks back then. Her work is magnificent and unique. I wish we could have her for our guild, but I have no contact for her although we both live in WNY. Thank you for sharing.
