Hello from the Lakadaisies Farm.

We are just fixing to “hit the road”. Dolores wanted me to share these pictures of the new edition of Quilt Mania’s “Simply Vintage” magazine. Two of her designs are featured in this issue.  Here is a picture of the cover.

And here is a picture of a quilt that Dolores designed and stitched.

Hello and greetings from the Lakadaisies Farm.

We are back on the farm now. We had a wonderful time on our trip up North.  Thanks to all of you who supported us at the Quilt Shows in Minnesota and Little Rock.  We caught up with so many old
friends and made a whole lot of new ones.

We have made some changes to our schedule.  We decided not to go to the show in San Diego.  We hope that it is a good show for all.  Instead, we have signed on to have a booth at two other shows in
California.  Again, we are going to join the Mancusco Bros.  For their Quiltfest Oasis Palm Springs. Show dates are October 8 - 10, 2015.  It will be held at the Palm Springs Convention Center in
Palm Springs, California.  We understand that this will be the second year for this event and we will do our best to help make it a wonderful show. From there we travel with the Mancusco Caravan to
Santa Clara for the  Pacific International Quilt Festival XXIV.  Show dates are October 15-18, 2015, and all the fun will be inside the Santa Clara Convention Center building.  This one has a few years
experience, and we have heard a lot of good about it.  It will be our first show in the “Bay Area”. 
San Francisco here we come.

Also, Dolores is going to teach a class or two with our good friend Hannah (Hannah’ Quilts in Chourdrant, Louisiana) at her store.  The tentative dates are September 5, 6, and 7.  For more details,
email us at or Hannah via email at or  phone 318 251 0314.

Dolores is always working on new designs and here is a picture of one of her latest.

Right now we are preparing to head to New England. .I have already told you about these shows but I will go over them again.  First we will be at  Hershey Pennsylvania for The Quilt Odyssey.  The show
dates for it are July 23, 24, 25, & 26.  From there it is on to Cape Cod for the Bayberry Quilter’s of Cape Cod Quilt Show.  Show dates are July 30, 31, and Aug.  1.   Next on our tour is The World Quilt
Show New England XII.  in Manchester New Hampshire and the dates are Aug.  13, 14, & 15.

We always go to The International Quilt Festival in Houston.  It is always a great show.  Show dates are Oct.  29, 30, 31, and Nov.  1 with a pre-view on Wed. night the 28th.  Always a lot of fun.

We would love to meet, or visit with you at any of these shows.  
I hope that you will join me as I continue to “enjoy life”
