Love being able to see all the great work you ladies are doing.

Have a great time and lots of sewing and laughing.

Looks like a good group! I hope you have as much fun as we did last year. I like seeing the familiar faces as well as the new.  Wish I could have come. I'll have to do some quilting to get over it. Is Thea going to the show or will she be glued to her chair sewing 24/7?!
