Hello ladies:

January is a great month to get your sewing area cleaned up, purged, and start anew. Ask me if I have done that yet…nope, but I will. Love starting a new project(s) and am very much looking forward to a retreat at the end of the month.

Now, when thinking about Paula’s question as to who you gave a quilt to and what was the response, I need to share this with you. Jane Ahles, our friend at DCYF sent me this story about a young boy, Caleb, who was recently adopted.

The adoptive parent asked that I share this with you. The adoptive dad was blown away by the workmanship and says he cannot thank you enough for this special gift! Caleb loves it. They recently moved to a new home. Dad and Caleb, now his son as of National Adoption Day, so appreciate this gift. My Licensing worker gave it to him as an adoption present and told him where it came, and Dad and son are so thrilled with it. A new dad, a new home, and a new quilt all add up to a new life for Caleb!

I do not know who made this quilt for Caleb, but it is beautiful. He can play checkers, tic tac toe, and still cuddle under this lovely gift. Our quilts touch lives in so many ways. Thank you to whoever made this quilt. It will be treasured.

Please remember to sign up for workshops, we have some really good classes planned and sign up to help with the quilt show. It is going to be awesome.

A Happy and Healthy New Year is wished for all of you!
Best regards,
Gail Macera

Congratulations to Bob Campbell of Warwick on winning our 2023 raffle quilt “Sea Stars”.

We have a stunning maple leaf quilt based on Timna Tarr’s Mass Maples under construction, so watch for that this fall.
