Yesterday I was delighted to spend the morning with the Quilting Bees at Leisure World, Seal Beach, CA. Leisure World holds a special place in my heart, my Mother lived there, and loved it, for over 35 years and it’s only a hop skip and a jump from my home.
This is the giant globe in front of the main entrance. Leisure World is a gated senior community. It is about 1 mile square (although it seems larger) and is virtually a city within itself. About 9,000 people call it home. Along with several churches, golf course, amphitheater, medical center, post office, etc., it has quite a few club houses that host many clubs and activities.
Club House 3 hosts the Quilting Bees every Wednesday morning. The actually have their own sewing room that has about 12 fairly new Janomes for use by the residents. It’s a great room with lots of workspace including big, high tables for cutting or basting a quilt. And yesterday they invited me to bring my trunk show and do my song and dance routine. I had a wonderful time with this great group of women and hope to go back and teach some classes real soon.
A big thank you to Ruth Ann and Barbara for inviting me. Love you guys!
