— * July 23 : Since the site announcement by email, it has received more that 300 visits. 20 visitors left a message in the Guestbook, and 30 sent an email response. Thanks to all of you for your interest and support.

  • July 21 : A big thunderstorm, that triggered all the breakers at La Havardière, also destroyed an electronic component in the quilting machine, that had been left plugged in (by mistake !). With the efficient help of our Gammill friends (Thanks, Joe and Lis !) the spare parts and the installation instructions were received in a week, and the machine is working fine again. What a relief !
  • July 19 : The successful rehearsal of the hanging of a quilt took place in the old Saint Eloi church in Angers, that is a presbyterian church since 1850. Thanks a lot for your help, Etienne, David, and Frederic.
