Regions in Italy host these events which consist of taking classes,
having a nice lunch,
prizes and gift exchanges,
and sewing a community quilt together. Really fun! This time the organizers offered a tour of their town -added bonus.

This time Lombardia province hosted and the day took place in the town of Clusone. It was great to see old friends from the hosting area. There were about 65 people attending.
