WELCOME
Greetings from Houston, Texas where the weather is warm and the quilt show it HOT. And by hot I mean, quilts are flying out of here left and right bringing in money for Alzheimer's research.

DID YOU MISS ME?
Madison wrote four times in my blog during October, plus I wrote about some incredible miniature quilts, inkLingo, Sudoku, SensMatic pencils, making fabric baskets, famous quilters you can meet in Houston at the AAQI booth, behind the scenes at the monthly auctions, a new sewing machine attachment and poll, and a bunch of others stuff.

You don't need to miss me any more. Sign up for my blog and get it delivered free to your email account. I write something every couple of days, with pictures!

Or, read it NOW and see what you've been missing.

AAQI AUCTION
This month's auction won't start until I get back from Houston. I've tried to teach Madison to do it, and he just plain refuses. So, you'll have to wait until November 5th.

Check out the quilts here so you'll be able to bid like crazy!

CYBER SHARING
Takako finished TWO Twisted Sisters quilts:

The "What Were They Thinking Page" has new additions.

ON THE ROAD AGAIN
Join me in Raleigh, NC for workshops and a lecture November 20-22.

And, don't forget Madison's Wild Quilting Tour as we visit quilting guilds along I-75 from Michigan to Florida this December. There are still some lecture days available for groups that want to meet Madison (and me).

See my teaching schedule for details.

FUN WEBSITE
Thanks to Sandy K. for another great video. Click here to enjoy it.

SHARING THIS NEWSLETTER
Please do. Forward the ENTIRE thing to all your friends and even some of your enemies. Everybody enjoys a laugh or two. Please do NOT forward just part of it. Somehow my name gets dropped off when these things float through cyberspace and since I’m writing them for free, I should at least get credit for writing them. If you write a guild newsletter (real paper or online) and would like to “reprint” a particular part of the newsletter you must ask first. Here’s how.

UNTIL NEXT TIME
Be good to each other and have a great quilting day! (Or several!)
