Dear Fellow Quilters,
As I write this message from Germany, the weather has been raining and cool all day. I really miss the California warmth and sunshine. We have had a wonderful vacation in Germany, we spent four days in Rome on a walking tour. Many of you know that I try to walk 10,000 steps every day; however, I surprised myself walking over 68,000 steps in the three days we were there. There is so much history in Rome, we saw a lot but really only a small fraction. I did a Google search and found a minimum of 10 fabric stores in Rome. We found three which gave me a chance to walk in an “pet” the fabric. I didn’t purchase any because room in our suitcase was limited.
When I first started traveling to Germany, to visit my husband’s family, I would bring a small travel sewing machine and work on projects in our “down time”. Over the years I have acquired the use of two very basic sewing machines from relatives. This trip I am using an older Singer and needed a walking foot for a project. We found a store in a nearby village that sold several types of sewing machines where we purchased a walking foot. I brought three projects this trip, a dress for my granddaughter, a quilt top for Community Service, and a tote. I was able to complete all three and found fabric for additional projects.
I really appreciate Sharon Ellisor leading the general meeting and Pat Gillings leading the board meeting in my absence – thank you both so much.
Our next Guild meeting will be the annual picnic on July 5th at the LDS Church on Hollow Way in Nevada City. Please bring a potluck item and be prepared to have fun! There will not be a speaker or a visiting opportunity quilt. I believe our 2017 opportunity quilt will be unveiled.
See you there !
