THE Book-Exciting News!

Machine Quilting 1-2-3, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

A few days ago, as I was walking back from my mailbox and absentmindedly thumbing the pages of a quilt catalog…

This is what I found…

As all of YOU know…I spent much of 2016 stitching tutorials and working with the fabulous editors at Martingale writing, re-writing, proofing and editing my first book…

But I had not seen the official photos!  THE PHOTOS ARE FABULOUS!

Needless to say I was thrilled!!!!

THE BOOK

Our book has a title:   Free-Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 and we have an ISBN number!

It will be available March, 2017 and is being advertised in Martingale’s Wholesale catalog right now.  (Stores should order NOW–it is sure to sell out quickly, right folks?)

I can’t tell you how excited I am!

And it would never have happened without YOU, Gentle Reader!!!!

In a week where we recount all we are thankful for…

This is one of many!

What about YOU?  What are YOU thankful for?

We’d LOVE to hear!

You could knock me down with a (FMQ) feather!
