A Season of Thanks and a SALE!

A wonderful Thanksgiving week is in the books!  It has been a season of Thanks, indeed! 

Had a chance to visit with the Matriarchs of our family, my Aunt Marjory and my dear Mother-in-law, both of whom are 91 years young!  Delightful women who, despite some physical challenges, have minds that are still very active, engaging, and interested in every detail of our lives.  I am always interested in the stories they each have to tell.

We have recently added two new grandbabies to our clan, and are grateful for all of these delightful little grandchildren who bring such joy to our lives!

And, as I reflect on the past year of traveling and teaching, I am consistently struck by the sense of camaraderie among quilters.  No matter where you go in the world, you can always find a quilty friend!  I feel thankful for those opportunities to gain new friends, learn new tips and techniques, and share our creativity together.   

At Quilt Market last month, I connected with several people I've known or have met or even just corresponded with over the years, and I also made lots of new friends.  I was so excited to meet up with Amelia Johanson, acquisitions editor and Debra Kaunitz, account manager of Fox Chapel/Landauer Publishing.  And it was a thrill to see a BLAD ("Book Layout and Design") and hold it in my hands!  I may or may not have cried like a baby when I saw it on their shelf!  The BLAD is a pre-publication example of the book with about 8 pages, used for sales.  

The publication date for the book is February 6th, and will begin shipping in January!  You can pre-order a signed copy from me here:  Ultimate Binding & Edge-Finishing Guide.  Look for a full post a little closer to publication.

Meanwhile, I'm having a SALE!! Through Dec 2nd, I've got a sale going on at Quiltscapes, where you can enjoy a 25% discount on all items site-wide. Use the code THANKS25. Whether you're planning to create a festive tree skirt for the holidays or explore other patterns, now is the perfect time to indulge your creative spirit!

Happy Quilting!
