Amanda of Kaleidoscope of Colors is our Robert Kaufman Stockholm fabric winner!
jill here... On a beautiful November morning, Marny and I took a road trip to mideastern Iowa. Neat and tidy, those Iowa farms look prepared for the coming winter. Traveling through the rolling hills and gentle plains, we arrived in Conrad where we were greeted at the Hen and Chicks Studio. The quilt shop and retreat center, The Nest, will celebrate its ribbon cutting this Friday, November 18th. The grand opening will continue through Saturday. Heidi Kaisand, owner, has renovated this beautiful vintage building to house her dreams of scrap booking, quilting and creativity. Many of you know Heidi as a former editor of American Patchwork and Quilting. With her family close by, this studio reflects Heidi's entrepreneurial spirit. She describes it as the perfect place to gather and devote time to your favorite hobby. Should you retreat here, you will be well fed and inspired!
