There are shops in Calgary accepting quilts:
- My Sewing Room (where I got my start as a quilter with their wonderful classes); and
- Rumpled Quilt Skins (in Okotoks, where I bought my trusted Husqvarna Lily 555, located not far from High River, the worst hit in the floods...)
There is also a connection with our quilting friends in Houston, Texas (Calgary has long been nick-named "Houston North" because of the oil business)...and a way for our US friends to help if they so choose...

And what would a Western Canadian flood be without an appropriate song?!

Yes, I'm back from Montreal...and working in the studio. More posts soon. Summer School is underway and I've been playing with paint and my new embellisher. Stay tuned!
