Today I had a great day with complete strangers! I belong to a Yahoo group for people in Indiana that quilt. One of the girls here in the northern part of the state organized a "sew day" (the southern girls do this often) for us. While we had a small turn-out it was a complete blast! It was great to put faces to names, to make new friends, and to share in something we all love to do. If you belong to any online groups, let me encourage you to organize your own gathering. We each brought a project to work on and a snack to share. We met at a quilt shop and sewed the day away. We gave eachother advise, encouragement, and oohs and ahhs. If you have done this before please share with me your experience with it. I know I had a blast and look forward to doing it again.
