Our wonderful new space for our weekend sews is at Cosmic Quilting. Our host, Karen Miller, is super cool and learned to sew as a child from her mother. She's held many positions within the garment industry including making wedding dresses and costumes. Her long arm career began when she made a gigantic king size quilt for a gift and decided her domestic machine wasn't the best tool for the job. Moving recently from the east coast, she started Cosmic Quilting in January 2014 when she took delivery of her Gammill Optimum Plus Statler Stitcher. She's got a technical background too so she can stitch to perfection.
The work space is awesome – big tables, super nice chairs, a cutting and iron station. We had 10+ people at the sew this weekend with some just dropping in to say, "hi" and others staying to work on their quilting projects - including some of the challenge projects coming up. Janet brought a tin of delicious fresh baked cookies and Kathy C. brought a huge basket of oranges from her own fruit trees. I took a few home and had one for lunch today. YUM! and thank you ladies!
Speaking of challenges, if you still need your Michael Miller fabric, please contact Janet Crothers or come to our Monthly Guild Meeting on April 24th at Hoffman Fabrics in Mission Viejo.
