Hey Mods! Spring is sprung and I’m really psyched about our May meeting. The April mini retreat at 475 FDR Drive was really fun; on the Board we learned a lot too and hope to repeat and enhance that success with a couple next year. Did you make it to the NJ Sewing and Quilt Expo? I had a great morning wandering the vendors and checking out the fantastic quilts. Thanks to Cynthia for organizing our Guild’s exhibit and to everyone who contributed a quilt. Great job!
So how’s your spring sewing going? A couple of months ago I mentioned that I’d converted a longtime friend into a new quilter and recently sold her on the ease and practicality of precuts. Not only can you get an entire quilt top out of one bundle but if you don’t have a lot of living space like a lot of us city folk, there’s little left over. She just made her first quilt from a layer cake and is really enjoying the simplicity of it. And I’m sort of reliving my early quilting days and getting a charge out of watching her adventures.
What are you looking forward to, now that the weather makes going outside a little more attractive Even it’s just opening the window next to your sewing machine and letting the sunshine in, spring sounds great to me.
