Sewing Sisters

Memories are sewn together with heartstrings. 

Have you ever met someone for the first time and immediately knew you were kindred spirits?  It has happened to me a few times and it is pretty magical.  This happened about eight ears ago when I was in Huntsville, Alabama at a Martha Pullen week-long class.

The first day a met a woman named Vanese and our friendship began.  Here is where you may think this is a little the past eight years we have not seen each other nor talked on the phone, but to this day I feel a strong connection to her.  I am so thankful  for Facebook because it is now easier to keep in touch (versus our annual Christmas cards).

Recently, I know my friend has been going through a tough time so I thought I would post a picture of us to boost her.  This photo was at Martha's house where we presented her with a quilt that our group made in our free time during the week.

After I posted it, guess what Vanese said?  OMGoodness! Kathy, you made my day! This pic is on a bulletin board next to my sewing table. I LOVE seeing it when I see. It is also a great memory for me. Thanks.

Funny, eights years have come and gone and we both still have the same photo displayed in our studios.

Do you have a Sewing Sister?


  1. Kathy, I do have sewing sisters. And due to blogging, etc., I have some people I'm super connected with and have never even met in real life. When I travel, I try to meet them. But I'm amazed how close I can feel to people I've never met. :-)

    1. When I read your blog, I can see where you have created many Sewing Sisters.
