This first week and few days has been very exciting and fun as Ricky, myself and a jackrabbit team have been working round the clock setting the gears in motion. I do think it is always important to thank those who have made this dream OUR (meaning the entire quilting community world wide) reality. Number one on the list would be Martin Favre, President of Bernina USA. I can't imagine being in his shoes (I have decided he never sleeps), with all the responsibilities he holds. But he manages to keep it all going, and first class I might add. When ever we get together, I try to take a picture. This was a Spring Festival last spring. My only regret? The flowers on the sweater.......and what was I thinking?!
