We have been inundated with emails waiting for the release of the 2011 BOM. Here it is ‘Imperial Blooms’. Wendy is in the process of dyeing new colors of wool for me to drool over as I make my final choices for the background and applique. I am very excite to start this quilt as it will have a little different slant. It is going to be filled with 44 stitches, 4 a month using wonderful embellishment fibers. In the first 36 hours we have received 200 sign ups. We will be closing it at 300 so don’t hesitate if you are thinking about participating. www.suespargo.com

Mary and Clarice have moved their store the ‘Rabbits Lair’ to a wonderful new location here in the historical district of Rogers, AR. It is bright, with wonderful light and very inviting. Their new class room is upstairs and overlooks the whole store. To my delight they have added some yarn and Clarice is the new yarn expert. The students were great many new as well as familiar faces. I was also delighted to see Julie, Patti and Diane who came down from Missouri.
Calgary was wonderful! Great weather, enthusiastic students and lots of lovely creativity. My dear friend Deirdre is the owner of ‘Out of Hand’ in Calgary which is filled to the brim with lovely fashion and quilting fabrics and to die for embellishment threads. It is a treat to teach there as we have every texture available right at out finger tips.
