We wish to thank Pat and Peter Masley woodchuc@wcta.net for their work in compiling this information for YOU. Without their work we would be a good month getting this information to you.

The showcase community in general owes these two a big THANK YOU for three years of dedicated work. Thank you, Pat and Peter.

We also want to thank George Goumas ggoumas@earthlink.net for his work in taking all these wonderful photographs. He did a fantastic job as you will see. You can see more of George's photography of Marge's quilting on their web site http://home.earthlink.net/~ggoumas  We also want to thank George for his video program at the Awards Banquet the last night of the Showcase.

89 x 96 My small quilting group (The Lunatic Fringe) decided to make a get well quilt for a fellow group member who was having a hysterectomy. Our goal was to make her laugh but not to ruin her stitches.

Over 30 different threads were used (Star mercerized VVV, Star special, Signature, Maxi Lock, Winton). Techniques include surface embellishment & trapunto by longarm machine, set-in motifs, & various impromptu freehand designs. Keryn Emmerson pattern used in sawtooth star block; remainder is original. Some of the fabrics were photo-transferred, hand-dyed and/or silk screened by the members of our group. Hobbs 80/20 batting. No
