I'm away from the studio. . .teaching skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows for a couple of months. I'm quilting donation quilts in my spare time. . .and I'm building a website. I'm also sewing dresses for my granddaughters, aprons for my daughters, and I have plans for some garments of my own. I just decided to stop and smell the roses and do some of those projects that have been haunting me for the past five years. I am still passionate about my longarm business, and have a small clientele who keep me busy. My waiting list is growing and my turn around time isn't as quick as it used to be. However, the quality is better than ever and I'm getting excited about the future of Gammill and Statler. Plans are in the making for a conference in June where I will attend classes and learn new and exciting features for my machine. I read an article that discussed "robotic quilting". I have never thought of what I do as "robotic", but I guess you could look at it that way. I think I don't like that term, because it sounds so cold. I put so much of my heart and soul into everything I do, that no ROBOT could come close to copying the results.
I thought I would post this just to tease you into keeping up with me. You never know what will turn up next. Photos? Lots of them, but, alas, no time to download and upload. Don't despair, it will come when you least expect it.
Thank you for reading.
