Oh Mary, How are you! I was wondering if you were on here. Things are so different now. But this site is beautiful. I can honesty say I can remember many years ago when I first found sew-what's-new sewing group. So tell me how did this all evolve like this.? What are you doing theses days? At any rate...It is so nice to hear form you. I live mostly in Detroit now with 2 trips yearly back home to Vermont to teach at the career center. I moved my busness to Detroit in June. Hope to hear form you soon....Arub Delete Comment

I appreciate your comments about going to the fabric store. I feel that same sense of anticipation when I go to a good fabric store. I was practically dizzy with excitement when I visited Britex in San Francisco. I only wish there were any stores in my city that could come close.
