      Hi Nancy —

      Thank you for writing. Where do you live? I travel to teach all over, and perhaps I can arrange a class near you. Actually, I’m going to be at a quilt guild in San Diego in September, and will be teaching the same class for the Utah Quilt Guild, the following week. If you’re interested in either of those two locations, let me know and I can put you directly to the folks who do registration.
