This is Jennifer Keltner. She is the Executive Editor of American Patchwork & Quilting. It is the number one magazine in the world of quilting. It is a Better Homes & Gardens publication. We were pretty excited when we got the call that she wanted to come to our store.
Look at this. These are all precut fabrics to make pillowcases. It just so happened that Moda decided to send us the new Kate Spain fabric. Maybe they know how much I love her. This fabric is from her new line called Cuzco. It is not even out yet.
We have a lot of work to do. It is a lucky thing that so many people came to help us. We have the very best customers.
It is time for a drawing. I got to do the picking. Our friend Sonia held the basket for me. She is helping today because she really understands what we are doing to help keep Kristen's Light shinning bright. She sadly lost her son Joe to AML leukemia too. He was in college at the time. They created an award in his name at Miami of Ohio.
Jennifer is helping me read the name.
It looks like we have a happy winner.
Look who is here. It is Stacy's grandma. She loves to see me I think.
She wants a picture of the two of us. I am going to be seeing her at the wedding. You know, Stacy's wedding. Her granddaughter. I am a bridesmaid. I told every one about it. Even the color of my dress.
This is Kathryn. I am meeting her for the first time. She is very nice.
Oh my goodness. Jennifer is telling me about when she goes around the country to speak she always wraps up her speech by telling the audience about Kristen and me because she loves our story. I think that makes us famous.
Bam!! I got to ring the bell. We do that for each time we finish a pillow case. So far we have 39.
We are up to 89 now. So it is time for another drawing. This is Beth. She works for American Patchwork and Quilting too.
And look at this. Another happy winner. They received these really nice bags filled with magazines and stitchy stuff.
OMG!! It is Mrs. Henschel. She was my vocational teacher my last two years at CEVEC.
Look at this Mrs. Henschel. I am taking these pins out. I know how to make pillowcases now.
Time to turn it inside out. Jennifer told me I was a pro at this.
Taadaa!! It works like magic. Mrs. Henschel told me she is so proud of me. Then she told me I should come to the dinner dance. I told her, "No way." Now I have to get really busy sewing.
