You see, I received an offer I just couldn't refuse. The BadAss Quilters Society asked me to come be a partner and make my home in Chattanooga, Tennessee. (Wait, no snow for six months? However will I adjust to a life without a brutal Minnesota winter?) Quilting is my passion, and this offer is my dream come true, so I packed up what belongings I had not yet sold and pointed my car south (with a detour to visit my folks in Portland, first).
I am settling in nicely. My first event for BAQS was on July 8 when Alex Veronelli came to Spool, our brick and mortar shop, to talk about how Aurifil threads are made. He is really a very professional, charming man, in person. (Don't believe everything you read online.)
I'm so excited to be planning classes for Spool, unpacking my studio supplies, and designing quilts in my head (for now, since my studio isn't ready, yet).
If you get down to Chattanooga, say for the AQS show and special BadAss Quilters Society exhibit coming up in September, please stop by Spool and say hello. I would love to give you a big hug.
