Amazing machine quilting by well known quilter Claudia Pfeil of Krefeld Germany
This lovely lady tugged on my heart strings for a different reason...
It was the first time I attended Road to California. It was an amazing experience! especially being there as a vendor for Innova. It was allot of fun along with allot of work. I loved demoing the machines and sharing my experience as a longarm quilter and Innova owner with other quilters. Thank you to Jim and Nicky Davis and Rick Cherne. I also met Neal, the President of Innova. I learned tons!
btw, Rick's wife, Teri entered a quilt and won first place in her category...
Chasin' Rainbows by Teri Cherne of Henniker, NH
Going to get some customer work done on the longarm today. It took me a couple of days to recharge my batteries!!! after doing the show. New classes for Painted Forest have been set up at Honey Run Quilters for those of you on the waiting list that didn't get into the first class. Going to make it a short day tho, the weather is so nice today...
hope you get out and enjoy it!!!
Tot ziens, Jo
