Miller and John Bunge
Welcome to all new subscribers who signed up since the last newsletter, especially on our fall tour.
We have just returned from our last shows of the year, and there's so much to tell you about! I'm not focussing well yet, getting used to being home again and all the little things that come with that (cooking, cleaning, etc). I don't even want to look at the garden yet.....
We had a marvellous tour back to Ontario and across the Prairies on the way home. The fall colours were peaking for an entire month while we were there! We haven't done the Trans Canada Highway drive for a long time, and it was great to see how things had changed in the interim.
If this is the first newsletter from me you've seen, welcome! I post them here on the website once a month or so, when there's something I think you'll be interested in. You can sign up for email notifications of new newsletters by sending me an email with "Subscribe" in the header. If you'd like to follow our doings more often, join my Facebook "fan" page (link at the left) or the blog (where I often write about our travels).

Fall Tour Report
Oh my, there's so much to tell you about our wonderful fall tour! We did 18 gigs (singing and teaching) across to Ontario and back, including 6 house concerts. Since there's so much other information in this newsletter, I've written it all on my blog, and if you'd like, you can read about it there.
As a preview, here's a picture of my Mock Mola class in Dryden Ontario:
And here's Dean and Ruth, to whom I gave my queen-sized "Philately #1" (pictured on the cover of the Singing Quilter Songbook) while we were in Ottawa. (I don't often give quilts away, but Dean has been a good friend for many years, and it seemed the right idea at the time. Still does.)
There's much, much more on the blog!
What I'm Working On
Now that we're home, I'm working on the design wall on the back of my new Wall Bed in the studio, so that I'm all ready to start quilting again.
I bought some high-density "Durofoam" insulation sheets which I cut to size and covered with thick white flannel. John has screwed the sheets into the underside of the bed, so that whenever it is stored (up), I have a wonderful design wall. You don't see it at all when the bed is deployed. Very exciting.
Here's the first project I'm doing, using the Marci Baker technique in her book "ABC 3-D" - the wall certainly helps with this layout!
We have completed our touring for 2014. Here are the confirmed gigs for the first part of 2015. John is still booking for the spring in Ontario and the midwest of the US, and the fall down to Texas. Let us know if you want us to come to you!
I'm VERY excited that we will be singing in Paducah for the very first time during the quilt festival in 2015. See you there?
In 2016 we'll be doing another one of our big circuits of North America, all the way down to Florida and up the Eastern Seaboard. Maybe then we'll be able to set up something in our last two states: Mississippi and Arkansas. Do you know any quilt guilds there? We need to sing for them!
January 24-25 LITTLETON CO (near
Quilting Council, Inc.
In May we'll be doing gigs in Missouri and Iowa.
