    I would love to come, but it needs to be sunny Long Beach, Long Island, New York. Is that the Long Beach you will be in?

    oh dear, just clicked on the link to the international quilt festival. Wrong Long Beach for me, just a few thousand miles away. So disappointed.

    but if you know of a group that would like to book me to teach in your Long Beach, I’ll be there! :-)

I love hearing from my blog visitors
