Party Time in Iowa

If you're not a member of Party with Patrick at your local participating quilt shop, this is the project you'll be missing out on at the May parties. Your local shop isn't a member shop? Let them know that you want to party with us!

Every month, there's a new quilted project for members to make at the parties, held at the shop. Shop owners and their hosts and hostesses have been very creative at coming up with their own monthly themes and offerings including snacks made from the recipes that come with your membership.

It's a lot of fun, at the very least, and I'm in Iowa right now visiting and teaching at four member shops! I'll be at Common Threads, Pine Needles Sewing Center, The Stitch and Quilting Connection and I can't wait to party with everyone there.

We're also spending the next two days getting all of the projects for Quilting Celebrations photographed and, although it's a challenging task, I'm really looking forward to it. I think you're gonna love the magazine.

On another note...what the heck happened to spring? It's stormy and cold here. I hope you're enjoying a more acceptable spring where you are ;-)

Cheers ~
