Words to the Wise

I usually write the company's newsletter and blog, but I don't want quilters to think John doesn't write...just yesterday we got our copy of Joe Cunningham's new book "Men and the Art of Quiltmaking" published by the American Quilters Society.  John's interview is included and we were tickled to notice that one of his quilts has been used on the dedication page.  There are some really beautiful quilts in this book and the quilters' stories are fascinating; this will make good reading this fall.

Another recent article is in the October issue of "The Quilt Life" magazine, also published by the American Quilters Society.  They have a feature called "If you could ask one question", and quilters sent in questions for John to answer.  He had fun writing his answers and then we looked through boxes of snapshots looking for bridge construction and quilt pictures.  I don't think I want to scrapbook, but I like looking at the old pictures; well, that's another story.

So, John does write, it takes a back seat to quilting, of course.  But today he is mechanicing on our old John Deere forklift; life at a small company is so glamorous sometimes.
