My sister, Pat Holly and I lectured and taught for the Indianapolis Quilt Guild in mid-January. We were fortunate to have great travel weather both ways! It is always a concern when driving to events in the winter. We gave our lecture on how we collaborate on quilts, the group seemed to enjoy our history! We then taught two days of machine technique classes to very enthusiastic students.

Mary Anne, Pat and Pat! (holding friend Pat’s beautiful hooked rug)
Pat and I had a wonderful dinner at our friend Mary Anne’s home and our friend Pat joined us.. Mary Anne and Pat are Beaver Island buddies from way back, having all attended Gwen Marston’s retreats in northern Michigan for many years. It was good see them on our trip to Indianapolis! We had a great visit with the Indianapolis Quilt Guild!
I was also excited to have a personal retreat with my own quilting group- I have been part of Tuesday Night Friends for 29 years! It was 4 days of non-stop sewing….
Sewing with our wonderful Bernina Sewing Machines!
and more Bernina Sewing Machines!
Wow, that’s a lot of Bernina’s! I couldn’t help but take photo’s of our group and our machines!
Well that’s it for January! It is now off to February trips… I will be leaving on Monday for Williamsburg, Virginia and a week of teaching at The Elly Sienkiewicz Applique Academy. I will remember to take lots of photo’s and report back on this wonderful conference…
