We each had a workspace, and for the 5 machine sewers, 3 sewed on a classic Featherweight! See how nice my red table looks!
and Nancy gave it a good workout. Of course my serious-enabler friend, Pat, introduced me to these wonderful tables, hers in the natural finish.
We were sewing kits, and here is Linda with her completed "flimsie":
I managed to get one of my non-kit-quilts onto the longarm and quilted, but was generally a little too busy to spend much time actually "doing" rather than coaching and encouraging. Oh, and getting the food on the table. Gosh, now I know why I'm a quilter, quilters are good at food! And newbie Nancy brought divine tomatoes with fresh basil and mozzarella, and seasonings so clearly pulled her weight as a quilter-in-training!
So for me, this was just another high point of the day!
And finally, what was really great was how well my friends meshed. It was nearly as though everyone had been friends for years instead of several meeting today for just the first time. It was wonderful. I have really nice friends.
