In June I will be in Reno for the Quilting, Stitches & Craft Expo from June 24-26 at the Grand Sierra Resort. Check out their website http://qscexpos.com/index.html.
Your quilt or sewing guild might want to organize a bus trip. You get a discount on your admission ticket. You can check out information at http://qscexpos.com/pdf/bus-trip-flyer-reno.pdf. Bus trips are a perfect way to start your three day adventure. The party starts when you board the bus.
My It's Funny to be Famous Seminar has become legendary, mostly because of the finale. Naturally the wine and
cheese help with the atmosphere.
And of course, everyone enjoys Mark Lipinski, the bad boy of quilting. If you don't come, we will tell tales about you.

Tips From Our Readers....
I have been doing a lot of "Quilts For Kids" projects recently and since the binding needs to be machine stitched down (I hand stitch all my other projects), I have found that fusing the mitered corner on the back of the quilt helps keep it perfectly placed while I stitch in the ditch from the front.
When I get to the corners, I also use the "button attachment" stitch on my machine to create added reinforcement to the middle of the miter. (Half way between the inner corner and the outer point.)
I find this might help to keep it all in place through the frequent washings the quilts are put through.....Mona

Funny Stories From Our Readers....
Ok, I'll tell. My husband bought me and surprised me this past Valentines day with a new Bernina. Well, I'm chain stitching along, smooth as butter, when all of a sudden I realize I'm out of bobbin thread! Would you believe not just one or two noooooooo, 24! Yes, 24 pieces with no bobbin thread! At first I was stunned, then just laughed and laughed! Along with quite a few others. Hope that brightens your day. Enjoy!....Pat
