After I showed the dress form I bought at the flea market I had an email about a week ago and the gal asked me if I would share the directions that I had found on an auction site when they were selling one of the Acme forms.

I would be very happy to send her an attachment copy but when I tried to send it she had the "no reply to blogger" on there. I have no way to reach her unless she sees this. No web site shown either. So if you do see this please contact me with your email and I will be happy to give you what I found. It is not a lot but might help.

I do not think that I mentioned before that I am going to the CQ Great Adventure being put on in Ct. early April by Maureen Greeson assisted by Susan Elliott and I am sure many more of her friends.

Carol Kramer who lives about an hour away from me in Florida is going with me and we will be flying together and rooming together. We have roomed together in Omaha and we are both still here to tell the tale.

I have met Allie before but not Maureen, Susan and of course Sharon coming all the way from Australia. Betty Pillsbury will also be teaching and I have had classes with her before. She is an excellent teacher and if you ever get a chance to take her classes do.

We are leaving Thurs. and returning Sun. night so will just be away 3 nights.

I am also looking forward to meeting some old friends like Kathy K. and
she is coming with Gerry Krueger from Older Rose and I can't wait to meet Gerry. I just read that Helen Thorkelson will be there also. That is wonderful. I met Helen at my first Omaha retreat and she is a great gal.

Diane M. from Ontario I met in Colorado last year so it will be nice to see all these people again plus meeting new friends.

Wish I could hide away in your suitcase and come along! You will have to take lots of notes and do a full report when you return!

Well, Freda, it will be good to see you again, too! And I know Gerry is looking forward to meeting you. There will actually be several people attending the Adventure from last year’s CQI Retreat in Colorado. Wow, and so many others I haven’t seen in years!

I have a Victorian dress form (minus the lower cage) that I bought two years ago. It has an 18” waist and I have an Edwardian summer white lace dress on it. But it takes up too much room in my small home, and I have decided to sell it, Wish I knew someone locally who would be interested! :-)

See you soon! Hugs, Cathy
