Greetings ladies,

Well, here we are headlong into winter! Do you want something fun to look forward to when

the winter doldrums have set in? I have the perfect solution! Come join us at our winter quilt

retreat at Penn York Camp. Invite a friend and get signed up today!

I’m happy to announce that Amy Bradley will be teaching this time. Not only is Amy an excellent

quilter, she is also a certified teacher. So I know we’re in for a great time with her. And no, she’s

not “the” Amy Bradley, quilt designer. She’s my friend Amy!

This fun quilt “ELNORA” was recreated for the Needles Quilt Shop in Wellsboro, Pa. by Pat Loux.

This reproduction quilt was inspired by an antique quilt, brought to the shop one day, that had

been made by the bearer’s grandmother, Elnora. This quilt is beautiful done in Civil War

reproductions and in a variety of colors. When I did mine, I chose a variety of red and white

fabrics and Amy did hers in black and white. The pattern is designed with sashing strips. Corner

stones can be added if desired, or it can be done block to block without any sashing. Whatever

you choose, I know you’ll love making this pattern.

Reminder: you need to bring your own bedding (twin size) and towels. These are not furnished

by the camp. And if you’re coming with a friend, when you register you need to specify who it is you want to

room with.

As always registration & payment is through Penn-York Camp. pennyork.com or call 814-848-

9811 Any questions concerning the quilt, contact me at 814-274-7691, or e-mail at


Looking forward to a great time with friends old and new!

Mim & Amy
