Fall Teaching/Lecturing Tours: Now to the South

Cedar Key, Florida now has its own quilt shop: The Salty Needle owned and managed by Beth Davis with her side kick, Bunny, who is also the best assistant in class. We spent a couple of jam packed days touring the area and appreciating a new way of  life on an island. Beth has a fine selection of fabric where she hopes to specialize in nautical/seashell fabrics. Another fine feature is the restaurant which is part of the same building--Fabric and Food, how good does it get?

 Some graphic art and sculpture add to the ambiance of this fishing village.
 We kicked off the two day workshop with a "low country boil" at the Low Key Hideaway. Yes, those are bottles as part of the decor along with many recycled bicycles. Here is Beth welcoming us.
 More of the Real Trip Around the World using 20 different fabrics with those "twirls" at every intersection. It takes awhile to get the twirl, but before you know it--everyone is twirling.
