Always take an opportunity to learn something new about the stuff you love and are passionate about. This makes quilting an ever present learning process. Getting together with quilters, and professionals in a creative industry. I had the opportunity to stay with Tracy Mooney Generation Q Magazine Senior Editor and her family. We’ll have a few blog posts over on the GenQ blog very soon. Part of the fun was getting to meet her husband and older kids. Before I left on Friday I was able to try some Miskatonic Brewing Company craft brews, Grendl being my favorite, it’s deep, complex, rich and nicely dark. I’m kind of wishing we’d done a GenQ Happy Hour. But talking. Ha! Are you surprised?
Friday afternoon we did a facebook live:
Oh my goodness my face looks hilarious. I really enjoyed staying with her, paying a quick visit to her local quilt shop, Quilter’s Quest. Oh my goodness what a great shop. Lots of fabric, lots of BERNINA, a warm, welcoming staff.
I do have to say I think I’m kind of in love with the new BERNINA L 460 Serger. Oh. My. Goodness. This is a great piece of equipment. Who would have thought that some simple things like moving the cutting knife, installing the BERNINA foot pedal with the back kick, and learning how to use some different stitches. Those Swiss Engineers even put a little window where the needles go in so that you can see that they’re in the correct position. The right needle sits a little lower than the left. Whoop! Whoop!
One fun thing – even though I am no longer working in a quilt shop I still have a gift for enabling quilters to get the stuff they need. It was so fun.
So, stay tuned for more.
