You probably recognize this magazine cover of “Where Women Create” and have heard of Jo Packham the creator and editor.
And you might recognize the name Heidi Kaisand as being the past editor of American Patchwork and Quilting and Quilt Sampler. (Why didn’t I take their picture?). Heidi has a shop in Conrad, Iowa and to celebrate having that shop for 5 years, she hosted a Creative Harvest Festival with Jo. Here’s the ad we noticed.
Connie and I ran into several friends from our beginning quilt days and caught up with them during the luncheon. We listened to Jo’s publishing “story” which was remarkable and then we of course had to shop. Heidi’s shop is called Hen and Chicks and she has a full retreat area upstairs with beds, bathrooms, kitchen and washer/dryer. Think what fun could be had up there!
Remember the day before when I stopped at church to teach straight line quilting? Here’s part of the Zion Sewing group who make 100 or more charity quilts every year. You ladies rock!
