I have another big announcement.  I was able to get into 4 classes at
 Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA this summer.  The classes I will take are:

Featherweights & Their Attachments - Betty Neff
Chisel Flowers - Nancy Bills
Jamestown Landing - Bonnie Hunter

I am most excited about the Jamestown Landing class with Bonnie Hunter.  I was able to take two classes with Bonnie last summer and I am thrilled to be able to take another.  

I will be writing much more about these classes as we get closer to July.
