I am a 5th generation Alaskan on my mother's side and 4th generation on my father's. I was born in Anchorage, Alaska in 1949. I attended
kindergarten at the old Main School and Hamilton Acres for first grade in Fairbanks. My dad was with the Alaska Railroad for 42 years and was transferred back to Anchorage in 1957. I married a Phoenix " Desert Rat", while a Senior at Northern Arizona University. He was 30 year Civil Engineer for Bechtel Construction and we have lived in a lot of different states. We retired to Greer, AZ in 2003. I learned how to quilt 5 years ago and quilt with two different groups twice a week...we are all Retired. We had planned to celebrate our 40th Anniversary in Alaska, but my husband developed heart problems in March and the gas will be attrocious, so not this year. We wanted to take our 36' RV with our two beloved dogs in it and just mousy around the parts of Alaska I have been to in my life (includes Native Villages.) I would have liked to attend your seminar.

That's too bad, Gretchen. Maybe next time we'll see you, or maybe at one of our seminars in AZ! Wow. Alaska to Arizona. Talk about weather and culture changes!
