Delightful Evening

Wow, what a delightful presentation Ami Simms gave at our guild meeting on Friday evening! I don't remember an event where I laughed and cried so much. It was 2 hours jam-packed with slides, anecdotes, giggles, door prizes, tears, and hugs. If you ever have a chance to attend a lecture by Ami Simms, run -- don't walk -- to sign up. You will not be disappointed, I assure you.

As I mentioned in my post here, my guild surprised Ami with a donation of 30 small quilts for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative. These quilts were made by our guild members to help raise money for the research effort to find a cure for Alzheimer's. Ami seemed genuinely touched.

Thank you, Ami, for coming to visit us in Wellsboro. You're welcome to come back anytime.
