Keeping it alive

Three things to be happy about:
(1) friends and family
(2) technology
(3) playing "remember when"

I want to share a video with you today that I talked about here.  Antoinette Ford, founder and President of Double Nickels theater company, created a You Tube video that pays homage to senior quilters, and the art of quilting itself.  Toni believes that quilting in it's purest form should not only be kept alive, but also kept in the forefront.

Enjoy the video; it was made partly at a senior center in Southeast Washington, at our Wee Bee meeting, and in Sandy Hassan's quilting studio.

Sew forth and sew on til later!
