Slice of Peace

The summer months in Central Oregon life ramps up to a high fever of activity.  Not only is there some event, race or concert every weekend but the population increases 10 fold.  During these months the quilt stores tend to decrease their classes & groups to make room for more retail space.  Still wanting to connect and sew but having no where to gather in large groups (no one has classroom space at their home) the locals spontaneously gather when they can.  The Woolie group at QuiltWorks is just a drop in and sew group.  When 3 of us got an email that the classroom wasn't available it created somewhat of a little whirlwind.  We don't have a "group leader" who has everyone's email and can contact with changes...it is way more casual than that...lol  

We lucked out that someone...Barb...offered her dining room for an impromptu gathering but regret anyone who decided to drop in at QuiltWorks and found no one there.  We did start a email list and plan on giving it to Marilyn at QuiltWorks so she can let everyone know when she changes the schedule. If you are a Woolie and want notice of any changes to the schedule give your email address to Marilyn.


Look at this loot that Sandy brought back from her road trip to Mt. Rushmore!  It is so fun to check out different quilt shops in our travels and the girlfriends love getting a "quilt road trip" report.  She confirmed it...even though she found many treasures we are sooooo blessed in Central Oregon!



Today we have 2 short slide shows, one show 'n tell of those that gathered at Barb's house and of course I couldn't be at a Quilter's home without taking a peek at the sewing space/room!  Enjoy!
