Happy New Year !

What a wonderful year 2011 was. I retired from Dental Hygiene and really went to work on One Loose Thread Quilting.

Now I get to spend each day with Olivia:
Then I hosted Quilt Camp in February and it was Mardi Gras.

It was hot in August , but the 'Frayed Knots' stayed cool and sewed away in the beautiful chapel at Gravatt.

 After that the 'Frayed Knots went to the coast and Camp St. Christopher on Sea Brook Island.

In between I have quilted many quilts and met so many new quilters. It has been a wonderful year and I want to thank everyone for making it so.

During 2012 One Loose Thread will be doing some new things and one will be a 'Teaching Retreat' in May. The dates have been set for May 7-10, 2012 at Bishop Gravatt Conference Center outside of Aiken, South Carolina. Our two teachers will be Sara Quattlebaum and Beth Karr. I know that Sara will be teaching 'Spiral Lone Star', however I am not sure what Beth will be doing yet. We are looking at 2 wonderful quilts for Beth and will let you know later this month just what it will be.

I hope to take the 'Frayed Knots' back to St. Christopher again and we will be 'Sewing in the Summer' in August at Gravatt again.

While all of this is going on I will still be quilting for others so, if you need a longarm quilter, give me a call. Whether it be a pantograph, custom quilting, or show quality quilting...............Let's talk.  I also have a good inventory of Dream batting for purchase, so if you need some just let me know.

Yes, 2011 was a wonderful year. Now bring on 2012------------It's going to be AWESOME!

Yep, LET'S GO SEW!!!!!!!!!!!!
