I'm Just Sayin

Come Visit La Veta this month!

Woohoo! I'm very excited to share with you some wonderful events happening in La Veta this coming June! You'll want to mark your calendars and plan a visit to our unique little mountain town to see a local production of "The Quilters" and a special exhibition of quilts made by world renown quilters such as David Taylor, Alex Anderson, Libby Lehman, myself and more! Justin Shults and myself have collected quilts over the past decade or so. The quilts on exhibit are from our private collection.

For tickets to the play, visit the website for the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts in La Veta. The play features “The Legacy Quilt” which I designed (shown below) and was made by members of the Colorado Quilting Council. The quilt will be raffled at the end of the last performance and all proceeds will go to the Francisco Center for the Performing Arts.

Look What's Here!

You may remember that I was the winner of the BERNINA Facebook Faceplate Face-off last year. Well, the machines featuring my design are now available at your local BERNINA dealer. If you are in the market for a great mid-level machine, or for perhaps as your travel machine to take to classes, consider getting this limited edition B-350.

Here I am, pictured,seeing the specialty boxes and machine for the first time during my recent BERNINA shop tour.
