I'll be coming but I won't be doing the quilting. I'll bring a cushion with me in case I need to camp out on the floor and leave the tables for the sewists. Mel W

My wife recently attended a quilt-making workshop here in Adelaide. Although she has some sewing experience, she found the workshop to be more fun to do it with other women who are learning the ropes of it. I know that she is going to make some quilts for our three children so that they could pass this on to their kids and their grand kids. She wants to start a tradition for our kids to follow thru. I hope they would!
