Happy spring in Canada!
I have lots to tell you about this month, including a recap of our wonderful 2 weeks in Hawaii in February. It was a great getaway to a wonderful quilt retreat. We met some new friends and snorkeled and laughed and caught some sun.
I'll be going back to Hawaii in the fall on a Princess Cruise. We still need THREE more staterooms to be booked before March 20th, or this cruise won't be going ahead.
I have a new passion that is taking up much time. It's a block of the month called Millefiore and is amazing. This one's for all my sister hexaholics!

The crunch is on: We are 3 staterooms short of being able to confirm this cruise! Six more people need to book before March 20th for this wonderful getaway or we won't be going.
I have just posted a blog entry about the three classes I'll be teaching aboard. Brandy Lynn Maslowski is the other teacher, and she'll be announcing her classes soon too.
If you have been considering coming along with us, please get in touch with Miriam (see contact info below) right away to book your spot.
Guests can join me and Brandy Lynn Maslowski, host of Canadian QuiltTalk for 15 days at sea including 8 full days of workshops and 4 days on the islands of Hawaii.

What I'm Working On
This is a commission for friends in Florida. This quilt will be on their long skinny wall in a room of white. They haven't seen this stage of the quilt yet - I'm hoping to have it quilted before we leave for our spring tour. I used the Marci Baker technique of machine piecing for the isometric background. It's about 70" tall and 25" wide.
2016 will be our last year of doing big tours by car. If you want us to come to your guild (or come BACK), please talk to your program person now so that we can fit you into our schedule.
Here are the confirmed gigs for the first part of 2015. John is still booking for the fall down to California and 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 the last 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!
March 20-21 OSHKOSH WI Fox Valley Technical College Sewing
and Quilting Expo
In May we'll be doing gigs in Missouri, Iowa and North Vancouver.
