Jill McNeilly and Sherri Moore--stitching visitors!

A month or so ago, we got an e-mail from Jill McNeilly, from Franklin, MA, stating that she would be in Denver with her husband who was attending a conference. Jill wanted to know if she could borrow a machine and sew in the store for a few days. We, of course, replied yes. Jill was with us for 3 days last week. She was making a quilt for a girlfriends' 13 year old daughter. The pattern was Topsy Turvy from an American Quilter magazine. It was fun to keep tabs with Jill and see the quilt progress. (Notice the beautiful ORANGE color?)
On the third day, Sherri Moore, from Indianapolis, IN, was in the store (her husband was also at a conference) and struck up a conversation with Jill. When she found out that Jill was borrowing a machine she inquired if she, too, could sew. We set up another machine and with the biggest grin on her face, Sherri announced that she was in heaven!
What a delightful time was had by all. Jill almost completed her quilt, Sherri almost finished a Grids & Grommets purse and we all had fun checking in on them from time to time.
I think the young lady that Jill is making this quilt for is very lucky--it was turning out great.
If you are ever in the Denver area and looking for a place to sew and be inspired, please call.
Thank you Jill and Sherri--we really enjoyed your visit. Come again soon!
Lynda, Nancy and the staff at Great American Quilt Factory

ORANGE ya happy? I love that quilt and wish I was there to be sewing along too. That would be a fun trip to travel and sew in your shop with fabric everywhere!
Just saw the ad for your new book and I have to have it!
Keep up the happy work.

How nice of you to accomodate out of towners! I just spent three weeks with my son in Centennial. I didn't have my Quilters' Travel Companion so I didn't know your shop was there! Big unhappy face!!!!! I took the car and went to some other stores I found in the phone book but somehow I missed yours. It's only 18 minutes from his house in Centennial and even closer from his church. Next time I visit I'll for sure stop by and I'll make sure I always travel with my "quilt store bible".
