Karen, before I forget it yet again, there is an event in Raleigh in August
called the Sewing and Quilting Expo and it travels all over the country.
Here's the link: http://www.sewingexpo.com/Events/Raleigh,NC.aspx
I don't see one listed for TN in the events, but you might want to check it
out and get on their mailing list. A friend and I are going to this one in
August, probably not for the entire thing, but at least a day or so, and if you're
up for some travel, you're welcome to join us.
Arlene, you, too!!!

Presented a quilt today to Gary "Sparky" Neumeier. He's the glass blower at the Artisan Village in Gatlinburg. We always make sure to visit with him when we are in the area, he's so fun. We talked to his wife and he had not gotten a QOV so today was the day. He was so moved he had tears. We got many hugs and he gave us each an ornament.
Angie, it's working great. I just had to stumble over the place that said 730's (my machine) are notoriously fussy (their words) about USB stick size and type. These models prefer a stick no larger than 256mb. Of course they also recommended an older Bernina stick but I'm finding cheap ones that work just fine. I put just one design on a stick and it works great. Needless to say I ordered a bunch from Amazon.
Well my friend in MI saved my butt and did a beautiful quilting on the baby quilt for me. Mama had asked for bears and bees and woodsy. She is also raising 4 baby possums so I stuck one in there. My friend wrote baby's name in the trim just below the center bear and above the possum. It will be a big surprise for mom. Arthur Thomas. I guess Arthur has a meaning of bear, and my hubby's middle name is Thomas. His brother's name was also Arthur which our granddaughter didn't know as he died long before she was born. I just need to add the binding and it's all set.
