Cleveland Expo

I think I can safely say, "A Good Time Was Had By All." Well...I had a good time. Adorable Jenny took the Really Really Broken Dishes class on Thursday morning. Also Dashing Dennis, from one of my postcards groups, was able to come. It was a lot of fun reconnecting with old friends and meeting some new ones.The Really Really Broken Dishes and Hearts class are made possible by Marlene, the EXPO queen. It was her idea to work in teams (due to time restraints) and then share the "parts" with each other. It's worked out amazingly well. Everyone gets up and moves around the room to use the different sewing machines and to swap "Parts". It's so interesting to see everyone discovering connections to one another, that they wouldn't have known before! Well done, Marlene!!!! Everyone leaves with a finished block, a full size pattern to make a quilt in her own color choice and the mastery of a new skill using a couple of old products in new ways. We go to Wooster Mass. next week. I sure hope it's warm there.
