Thank you for opening up for me on my impromptu visit last Saturday afternoon! I am so excited to be contemplating my first project in 2 yrs or more and have to have rediscovered my patchwork passion. My friend Sylvia is also interested in doing one of the Protege classes so we may both come along to a Sat class as I could do with a refresher. It was lovely to catch up with you Karen and amazing that you remembered me! So glad Tom arrived safely in London and that he left his room neat - there you go ! Look forward to seeing you soon. Please let me know when you have two places for the next Protege class. Love your website too!
Kind Regards, Samantha :)


Well Karen what can I say. What a great turn out. Your enthusiasm is contagious. You just brighten up the world. Wish more people were like you. Had a great morning and the quilts on display very diverse. It's great to see the local community get behind such a worthy cause. Well done, well done !
