Serendipity Strikes Again

2013 Events

I am one of the luckiest people I know.  Saturday at 8am my friend Vivika DeNegre rang asking it I'd like to go to NYC for the day to participate in Quilters Take Manhattan, a celebration of Quilt Alliance.  Know how fast I said YES?  I was ready and waiting in an hour.

I took a bunch of pics...but they were all for other people, using their cameras.  Duh.  Finally I shot one of my own.  Pictured with Vivika (Editor of Quilting Arts...and much more) are Leslie Tucker Jenison and Jamie Fingal. You can tell they were having fun.

It was such a wonderful day filled with friends, new friends, fiber...fiber...fiber.  Oh, did I say that Hollis Chatelain was the Event Speaker with "An Artist's Journey" AND the four members of Semper Tedium spoke:  Paula Nadelstern, Robin Schwalb, Amy Orr and Katherine Knauer!?!

See, I told you I was lucky.  Doesn't get better than this.
