My sister Ronda and I are in Hamilton, Missouri. YES -- WE ARE AT MISSOURI STAR QUILT COMPANY -- for a Featherweight Retreat.
Ronda (in red) is with me this week -- and Deena will be at our upcoming Summer-Sister-Sewing-Retreat.
Ronda has many skills -- she and Dean do the Farmer's Market every week...
But, mostly, she is famous for her RAGGED EDGE FLANNEL BLANKETS...which she produces like she was a factory!!
Holy Cow!! COULD I BE IN A HAPPIER PLACE??   Carmon and April Henry are on their world tour -- doing Featherweight Retreats all over the USA!!

I met Carmon and April when I interviewed them for Inspired To Sew magazine last year.  But this will be the first time I get to MEET THEM IN PERSON!!  Ronda and I are SO EXCITED!!
We are going to learn EVERYTHING WE NEED TO KNOW about our Featherweights.
If we have spare time, Ronda will no doubt make YET ANOTHER RAGGED EDGE QUILT...
Ronda's Featherweight is a 1952 in perfect condition.
Memphis had her first sewing lesson on Ronda's Featherweight
Lilly is getting more comfortable with it every time we make something.
Life just doesn't get any better than this, people!!
