Photos of the Printing in Michigan (Lucky Jeni!)

Jeni is at the Quad Graphics print facility in Midland, Michigan.  Her husband Glen drove her up there.  They stopped at quilt shops along the way, and are having a wonderful mini-vacation.

I know we refer to our dear West Virginia as "Almost Heaven," but today Jeni would probably say the same about Michigan.  Every time she called me today it sounded as though she were holding back tears of joy, as she witnessed our sweet newborn magazine take its first breath as pages rolling off the presses.

Thank you, QuadGraphics, for doing a wonderful job, and for showing Jeni and Glen such a nice time!
