Exciting news

The winners were announced today for the Quilt Alliance “Voices” quilt contest and auction.

My quilt came in second place.

and I won a new sewing machine.     I am excited to learn to do quilting on an electric modern machine.    I will still be a treadle quilter but want to become proficient at electric as well so I can be a better teacher.

All the quilts will be auctioned off in November to help fund the Quilt Alliance.    Here is the link to the auction site to see all the quilts. http://www.benefitbidding.com/auctions/listings/index.cfm?auction=318&resetcategory=1

Happy Quilting

Tim

    Congratulations Tim . Your work amazes me .. some day I'm going to buy one of your bags I just have to save it . I just bought a 104 yr old Treadle sewing machine like yours . It needed a shuttle and a spring fix oiled and it works like a jem .. not bad for $ 150.00 plus $ 76.00 for repair … I'm so happy I'm on cloud nine .. Julie
