Going to 'Hell!'

Okay, I'll admit I haven't been a very persistent correspondent, have I? I have all kinds of excuses keeping me away from writing blog posts, none of them very juicy. So I guess I'll just have to take my licks and suffer the punishment - in 'Hell' of all places!

Wait! It's not what you might be thinking! Spring Quilt Market, a huge trade show for the quilting industry, is just a couple of weeks away. This spring, the host city is Minneapolis, so I'm headed there to take part in the show. A few short steps away from our hotel is Hell's Kitchen a breakfast, lunch, and dinner eatery where they serve 'damn good food!' Janet Lutz, owner of Calico Gals, is my travel partner, and we've been to 'Hell' before, and we're so glad to be going back. Hey, if you're in town for the show, why not join us in 'Hell' . . . you'll love it there.

While at the show, I'll be spending lotsa time in the Brewer Quilting and Sewing Supplies booth taking about the three programs I author: the ScrapTherapy program, Snap Sack Small Quilt Kits, and Skinny Minis. Meet me at the Brewer booth if you're headed to market and I'll fill you in.

Series 11 ScrapTherapy patterns are in progress, and they are oh-so-cool! The quilt is almost all quilted and ready to go. It's a really easy throw-together project and has great 'guy quilt' potential depending on color direction. Here's a mini sneak peek! The full quilt will be at Quilt Market and patterns will start shipping during June.

See ya soon!
