Well, John is on his way to the American Quilters' Society Show in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.  Now that's a far piece from Montana, let me tell you.  Kate leaves tomorrow to meet him to vend and demonstrate in the booth.  The shows are really close together this time of year, and they scrambled hard to get more frames ready and more pre-cut kits ready.  But the van was full and I hope the quilters at the AQS Show find just the pre-cut kit they are looking for, or give the frame a try and take one home with them!

The office is closed while Kate is gone, of course, but she wanted to have a Sale on the Flynn Multi-Frame with 48" rods while she was out of town.  So, go to the catalog, order a quilt frame and use IRISH for the discount code.  ($20 off)  She will be busy when she gets back, I guess she realizes that.

We still have banks of snow, but the days are longer and it is starting to feel a little like spring.  Click here for a look at what the folks in Red Lodge were doing for fun today.  I haven't been up to the Rodeo Grounds to watch the skijoring, but I watched it several times when it was just in a vacant lot beside the highway.  It is never boring in Red Lodge.

Why not plan a summer vacation to Montana; Yellowstone Park, Little Big Horn Battlefield, fishing on the Big Horn River or the Madison, backpacking in the Beartooth Mountains and combine it with 3 days of quilting with John Flynn!  Here is more information on the August 2013 Retreat.  John has chosen the classes and there will be lots of possibilities for students and curved triangles will never be a mystery to you again!

Take care and have a wonderful early spring (or early fall) wherever you are!  Brooke
