FALL QUILT CAMP

We just finished up our 18th and final Fall Quilt Camp with Instructor Michelle Hiatt at The Rangeley Inn and Tavern in downtown Rangeley.  Thank you to the 25 campers that joined us this year and to all of the campers that have taken advantage of our Fall Quilt Camps throughout the past 18 years.  While it is time for us to end our part of camp you will be most pleased to know that Michelle plans to carry on as the Fall Quilt Camp organizer and instructor!  So…the tradition continues!  For info on future Quilt Camps and more of Michelle’s retreats, please click here.


MACHINE QUILTING

This is not definite yet but I’m trying to see if there is any interest ~ I am pondering longarm quilting for others again.  At this time I would only be interested in the basics ~ all over edge to edge quilting, all freehand. (examples below) If this is something you might be interested in, let me know.  Again, not a definite yet ~ just trying to get a feel for the need.  

Left ~ All over leafy feathers with swirls, Right ~ All over Fancy Feathers
Left ~ Loops and Stars, Right ~ Big Circle Thingy's (technical term)


My favorite ~ All Over Basic Feathers (looks great with wool batting)

THANKSGIVING

It looks like we will be celebrating Thanksgiving here in Rangeley this year where we will continue with my dad’s “Pie First” tradition.  In case you missed the "Pie First" story in our December 2013 newsletter, here it is again.

We all love the “Pie First” tradition, carried on in memory of Carol's beloved Dad, Stan Coolidge. Having a hearty sweet tooth, Stan began a family tradition years ago of enjoying coffee and a slice of all the pies midmorning, while the holiday meal was cooking. Soon the whole family was enjoying mid-morning plates of pie and coffee or milk. You may think this means that they didn’t have pie for dessert ~ well they did, and still do!

Hoping your Thanksgiving is filled with blessings and joy….and pie!
