I think it was 2003 the last time I saw Shirley (in pink) We met on the internet. I think I tried to answer her question on a "longarm forum" as we both had the same A-1 brand Longarm. We kept communicating and helping each other, eventually meeting down in Springfield IL at one of the longarm conventions. We kept in touch and when a friend and I went "Retreat Researching" on down to Leavenworth Kansas, Shirley opened up her home as a pit stop half way. She lives in Iowa. Anyway, finally her and her friends made the long journey. It was great seeing her and her friends again. And meeting some new friends too. Thanks for coming girls and see you next year!! It was great hosting everyone this weekend with such diverse projects. The cream quilt was Zona's quilt as a baby. Very nice!
Pin cushion of the week. Shirley did applique the whole weekend with this little pincushion helping her.
In Feb 2005, we opened the doors to Homestead Cabin Retreat. A place where women come and sew on their latest (or oldest) quilting creations. Come join us, either online or in person. The greatest Quilt Retreat in the "Middle of No Where"
