Threads Galore Quilting Services

August 2015 News from Threads Galore

Dear Quilting Friends,

We had a great time at Maine Quilts ~ thank you to all of you that stopped by our booth. We enjoyed chatting with high school acquaintances, relatives we haven’t seen for ages, past and present Quilt Campers and Quilt Inn-ers! Many thanks to Michelle Renee Hiatt for loaning us her “Blue Starry Night” quilt from Deb Tucker’s Hunter’s Star Hidden Treasures book. It brought many into our booth for a “closer look”. Loads of Fall & Spring Quilt Camp Brochures were handed out so if you are thinking about signing up do so soon!

It’s that time of year again when our Virginia family (daughter Vanessa and family) arrive for their summer trip “back home”. This will be their last summer vacation in Maine as next summer they are moving back to their home state! YAY! Son-in-law Lucas will be retiring from the Navy after twenty years of service. Thank you Lucas!

The Grands ~ Evan, Bumpie Dan, Jakob, Mamie Carol, Kailey & Parker

We recently had our family day at Green Pond where four generations of Carol’s family enjoyed the sun and the sand during a perfect summer day. Dan’s brother Greg, sister Carol and husband Vic also joined us, along with cousin Lindy and wife Melinda. Grandkids Kailey & Jakob were in the water five minutes after our arrival ~ Kailey got a swimming lesson from Auntie Terri and was dog-paddling in no time. Both kids had to be dragged out at the end of the afternoon.
Carol also had a nice visit with her Florida sister Tam during her visit home recently. Their trip to Rangeley united the “Coolidge girls” once again ~
