"Rituals" An exchange between friends. A handshake. A kiss before bedtime. The artist at work. A sun salutation. The wave before boarding the school bus. A song, a word, a meditation. A habit, a custom. The traditional toast at a gathering. A rite of passage. The sacred moments of the ordinary. Rituals: What are yours?

Moore's Sewing Centers is our sponsor for Festival in Long Beach, and Havel's Sewing is sponsoring the exhibit for Festival in Houston. Please show your appreciation by visiting their websites, when you get a chance. I know we really appreciate them, for without sponsors, we wouldn't be able to exhibit in these internationally-recognized shows.
