After a 2 week visit with my sisters gang neared its end and the house was once again returning to normal....
I was rewarded with a long needed and much looked forward to: new sewing machine to bring with me to workshops.
I have had a rough time with servicing on my "travel" workshop machine and it was time for us to part. I bought my new one at my local quilt shop. I know I can count on A Nimble Thimble in Tyler, Texas... so I am relieved to finally have a sewing machine from their shop!
The fact that it is a Bernina Special Edition Ricky Tim's makes it even more special!!!

I needed to prepare several quilt sandwiches for a special workshop with Jacquie Gering.
But- most of my time & efforts went to prep for a Bionic Gear Bag class my modern quilt guild is offering Saturday!
Between creating fabric for the outer quilted wrap, collecting supplies, and then measuring, cutting, interfacing, & prepping... I wonder if I will regret signing on for this one!!!

On Thursday was our monthly meeting of the Quilt Guild of East Texas. I was extremely excited this month that they brought in National speaker Jacquie Gering for a lecture & workshop entitled: Creative Quilting With the Walking Foot. Jacquie is the President of The Modern Quilt Guild!
Later that evening, we enjoyed Jacquie's company at 🍷🍴 dinner in celebration of our groups 2 year anniversary...
It was also a celebration of 6 months as a chapter of the Modern Quilt Guild!
I learned soooo much... but I am exhausted!
This being my first experience on my new machine... I learned even more!
It was a great workshop... I left with a lot of new info... motivations... and an added eagerness to quilt with my walking foot.
