• • • The Milwaukee Machine Quilting Show has changed names and location.
I'm thinking of going tomorrow or Friday. Anyone interested in going and getting together?
NTQuilter and I took Pam Clarke's class about quilting inside the lines, or maybe another one. Anyhow, she is a super lady, wonderful teacher and talented quilter. In fact, she donated some books and patterns for the Branson retreat. I'm disappointed that she's coming back to Cincinnati to teach the weekend I'm in Branson!
Just one question: can you say the name of that city...three times...fast?!!
• • • Yes, I can Jill. It's pronounced O con o mo woc.
I'm not signed up for any classes, I had totally forgotten about this show. My schedule just changed, so it looks like I'll be going on Friday.
When you grow up in a town called Kewaunee, Oconomowoc is nothing special!!! Just another of those names from the Native Americans.
DH has the hardest time with Shawano! Chris
My Mother was from Kewaunee, I was born and raised in Manitowoc just north of Sheboygan.I always enjoyed going to the quilt and craft stores in
wisconsin. I think its time for another trip.
Welcome to the board, Gerry! A good group here. Feel free to ask any question. Someone or many someones are always glad to answer anything.
Will you be going to the Jacksonville quilt show this fall?
Have snet you a PM... Chris
If I had known about this sooner I could have found some time to go, but not this time. Wisconsin does have some great Indian named cities that look hard to pronounce, but are easy once you have heard them. Oconomowac is a really pretty place to visit. Pat
• • • Phooey Patty, but I just found out about it this week myself. I did sign up for the newsletter so I won't miss it again.
I think its great the way you all have morphed this thread into 'weird city names'. Although, I am use to them, so they don't seem weird at all.
I shouldn't be poking fun...I grew up in Michigan, so most of those names are familiar to me! And, I grew up on Pottawatomie Bayou!
Darn - and here I am in Eastern Montana. Rained enough we can't harvest wheat till it dries. I can pronounce them also - born in Waukesha, lives in SE Wisconsin till in my 30's. Wouldn't you know, now that I have met other quilters on line, shows & fun events are in the area when I am not. Enjoy - will look forward to hearing of the fun. Also purchased a Baby Lock Avante machine this spring - so could use lessons. Heading in to try the first pantograph I have used. Wish me luck. Cindy
Good Luck Cindy, and Welcome, I don't think I've seen you posting before. We like pictures, but you probably know that. Hope to see you posting. Pat
