Joe the Quilter

I know that I have been gone a while. It's like I made it to 500 blog posts and got stuck.
Anyhoo, I joined another guild last August but things kept getting the way of my attending the meetings. Well, today I remedied that. I got there at 9Am for a meeting that starts at 9:30.

The guest speaker was Joe "the Quilter" Cunningham. He is a musician, a songwriter and oh yeah, a quilter. It was very entertaining. Check him outon youtube.com and
you'll notice that his audience is laughing their heads off. I know that you have been to some pretty dour (read as b-o-r-i-n-g)guild meetings. Joe the Quilter brings a lot of laughter to a guild meeting. It was wonderful.

Here's a link to Joe on Youtube video

He's on Facebook ,http://cy-gb.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150278538645227 too.

And here is another link to the original Joe the quiltmaker who worked as a tailor in Warden, England in the 1780's. He made waistcoats for proper English gentlemen and met a mysterious death. If you need a guild speaker, you should consider Joe Cunningham.

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
