As I posted about yesterday I’m going to be finishing up some quilting projects. So in the spirit of quilting and needing some help with my own machine piecing I stopped in at a local quilting retreat, Quilters Haven in Middletown, CT. I call it a retreat because what’s more wonderful than being surrounded by quilters quilting? It’s really a gathering place where classes and open “sews” are offered. Sounds like heaven to me.
As I entered to ask for a class schedule I hear my name being called, it was my cousin Claudia who I haven’t seen for at least 10 years!!! What are the chances??? So needless to say we were both thrilled to see each other and did a bunch of catching up. I love when things like that happen, it’s almost magical to me. All of the other ladies and one handsome gentleman that were there sewing were so warm and welcoming and making the most beautiful quilts!
So the open sews are now on my schedule and its great to know my cousin, an amazing quilter by the way, will be there!
If you live in this area I highly recommend Quilters Haven, for the help, the classes and they also have a long arm quilting machine and offer professional machine quilting.
