  1. Vicki, I so enjoyed your article in MM magazine. We tend to forget sometimes what all the positive side effects are of quilting and focus on the stressful side – is this the right color combination, oh look at my mistakes. When I stay focused on learning, community, giving, et al that you mentioned, I am always a happier person. Thanks.


    • Thank you so much Glenna!! I think that sometimes non creative people as well as creative people don’t understand the therapeutic benefits of creating …. And I want everyone to try something !!! Thanks for reading the article and taking time to comment!
