"Hope and Love" by John Flynn

Hello - this is a busy time of year for us; John and Kate have just wrapped up the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara, California and are on their way back to Montana. Then they must pack and restock like mad so they can vend at the International Quilt Festival in Houston. John teaches two days right before the show opens; like I siad BUSY!

I wanted you to see the little video about John's "Celebrity Alzheimer's Quilt Auction", a fundraiser for Alzheimer's research. I can't remember for sure but I think this is the sixth time he has made a miniature quilt for the Celebrity Auction; in fact he was one of the original four who dreamt up the fundraiser. I believe a late night after a big dinner with other quilt teachers and some wine were part of the brainstorm. Anyway, bid on one of these wonderful miniatures if you can - this is the last year for the AAQI auction.

More news to come later this week - we have dates for the 2014 Quilt Retreat here in Montana!  It's not too early to plan...  Brooke
