Well, I am back from my Gruber's quilt retreat and other travels and, in case you were wondering from my previous post, I WAS able to sew on my featherweight during retreat. Turned out the problem was with my foot pedal so there was a last minute attempt to purchase a new one and have it shipped to Gruber's, but the places I contacted could not get it there in time. Enter quilty friend Lisa to the rescue who read my dilemma on Instagram and offered to overnight her extra foot pedal to me. I already knew Lisa was awesome, but this went beyond! Quilty Friends Rock!
PSA: it doesn't hurt to have an extra "happy" on hand....you never know when you might need one! I was so glad to have brought an extra bag with me and I shipped this off to Lisa before I left Montana.
I received some wonderful happies in return from my generous retreat buddies. It's amazing how each year there is such a variety of amazing gifts and no repeats. Since I did not take a picture of all my happies and they haven't been unpacked yet (on today's agenda), I am borrowing the picture that Doris took.
I have more to share on our fabulous retreat, so tune in tomorrow ;-))
