Hello, dear friends:My new mantra: “There’s nothing more constant than change!” Lots of changes going on in ALL our lives…and you remarkable people just seem to roll with the punches! You are all amazing! Happy to have you a part of our world! One thing doesn’t change …there’s not a day that goes by that Janni isn’t a part of it all. We talk about things she said or did, share her works, remember her in so many ways…it’s just a natural! She and I have “staff meetings” in the morning on the way over to JLC. You’d be surprised how much input she has! So grateful for the comfort of that! Candy has made the change to full-time with New Horizons, so we don’t have her cheerful persona around. She is missed by all of us…and we know there are certain customers really missing her presence as well. Thank goodness she is still finding a little time to do some quilting. Hopefully we may encourage her to hang out with us once in a while when her schedule permits! All of us wish her well in her career pursuits. It’s difficult to not have Safari happening this year – after 18 years in a row, having Eunice on furlough seems a bit “out of whack”, and I’m so happy to hear that so many of you miss it. We did, however, participate in the Underground Shop Hop and enjoyed meeting lots of new folks as well as welcoming many long-time customers and friends. We are so blessed to have this old movie theatre to come to – to spend our days meeting and greeting and sharing enthusiasm and love of quilting!We’re blessed to be surrounded by so many, many talented quilters and textile crafters. Congratulations go out to Cindy McEntee! She spent some intensive time with Judy Niemeyer in Montana and came home as a duly Certified Instructor! Now, she not only directs our Judy! Judy!! Judy!!! Sessions, but joins Shirley Scott in offering other Quiltworx (Judy) classes through JanniLou Creations. Cindy will be offering an Intro to Paper Piecing and an Intro to Machine Appliqué class this term. See details elsewhere in the CRF. Shirley leads our Technique of the Month sessions with her patient and gentle (but firm) manner. We are very fortunate to have these two talented women offering their energy, inspiration and guidance as you create your own masterpiece paper pieced quilts!
