Good to Visit ~ Good to be Home!

Last week, I had the pleasure of visiting the Des Moines Area Quilter's Guild. 

Two lectures and three workshops gave me lots of time to get to know some of these very talented ladies.  We talked about the "prairie women" and "making-do", and some shared stories of my favorite (and their) bygone eras.   I just love spending time with quilters!  We shared piecing hints and tips and laughed a lot.  They all gave me a very warm welcome and I hope to return again.  I love the Des Moines area!

I was sooo happy when one of my favorite people in the whole world surprised me with a visit! Jody Sanders, who is a very, very talented quilter, Prairie Woman, and jewelry artist (not to mention Editor at American Patchwork & Quilting magazine) really shocked me when she came to my lecture!!  Such a nice surprise!!  I wish I had more time to visit with everyone.  

In my next post, I'll show you something truly unique and wonderful from the 1700 & 1800's that one of the guild ladies shared with me!     Don't miss it!


  1. Looks like your session was in a beautiful church. Should we call you Pastor Pam? Welcome back!

  2. I can't wait to be one of those lucky people who gets to spend time learning from you!

  3. Welcome home, 'Pam!" I was there and enjoyed the day with you and your delightful presentation!

    Thank you!


  4. Beautiful venue--everyone looks like they are listening
