Quilter's Harvest-What a Blast!

               Nanette provided so many great fabric pieces to choose for our button cover.
                                  Melissa teaching Betty how to make a Felted Wool Magnet
I love to see mothers and daughters learning a new skill together.

We had our first ever Quilter's Harvest activity on Friday.  It was so much fun.  Teachers Amber, Nanette, Melissa and Amanda all did an incredible job.  I feel so privileged to know these creative women.   The workroom space easily accommodated a class of 15.  So it is good to know it will work well for a group of 8-10 for a three day quilt retreat.  We had four irons going at a time and did not blow a fuse (always good to know)!

                                                                     Such good food!
One of the best perks of the day was having a “personal chef” cooking up delicious meals all day long.  Really can you think of anything nicer than that!  Laura of "Be My Guest" is such a good cook.  

Good friends, some old some new, great food and crafty activities.  What a great day! I look forward to doing it again in the spring.  Hope you all can come.
