High season for local quilters......

"If you have ever searched for a way by which to measure who we are as a people, the things we value -- the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves -- then you really ought to consider attending a local quilt show."

That is how the article in today's Oregonian begins. The Oregonian is our local newspaper, published in Portland. There are several quilt shows coming up in the area and this article makes you want to hot foot it to the Great Northwest. Even if you can't make it to this corner of the world to take part in these events, you will enjoy the article. It's well written and honors those who take pleasure in creating with needle and thread.
