The No Rules Thursday Night Quilters that Sometimes Meet on Wednesday

In the early 1990's my sisters and I began to quilt. We shared patterns, fabric and new techniques. Before long we were sharing our new skills with others by teaching and learning together. Soon a small group of friends formed and they brought their friends. Since then we have gathered once weekly to quilt and visit. We are not a formal club; no president, no bylaws. Just a close group of friends who have but one rule: When two or more quilters are gathered they can make a rule!
The idea of getting together for a retreat of quilting came about around in the early 1990's. Our first get away was in the mountain community of Big Bear, California. About 10 of us went; some to quilt, some to rubber stamp and some to ride her mountain bike (me). This past weekend about 26 of us gathered in Big Bear once again for our twice a year "quilt camp". Most quilted, some crafted making cards, decorative boxes, scrapbooking, embroidery, knitting and painting. I joined in the fun by making this art pad for my Annie from chalkboard cloth. I can't wait to give it to her! Now she can "sketch" anyplace!
