I met Cherri at Portland Modern Quilt Guild and got to know her a bit as we were officers together in 2010. Yesterday afternoon she held a wonderful open house at her new studio space in the St. Johns area of Portland, which houses her new long arm quilting machine. It was a perfect afternoon of Cherri-style hospitality!
The studio is housed in this cool old building, Cathedral Park Place, formerly the home of Columbia Woolen Mills and then Columbia Sportswear.
Just outside of her studio, you get a little promise of the inspiration within.
The awesome sign is a gift from PMQG member, Jill, and was made by her husband from her design.
They make incredible templates, including this New Wave Template.
Once inside Cherri's studio, there is so much to admire and inspire.
Come in and take a look around!

Don't forget to grab a warm cookie and some ice cold milk.
And be sure to get a party favor!
Take a spin on the long arm. You can have a turn after Monica.
Maybe Jen will give an impromptu lesson on making a zippered bag.
Relax and enjoy yourself with quilty friends and family.
Thank you, Cherri, for sharing your beautiful space with us! You are such a gracious hostess!

It's time for me to head home, but what a beautiful drive it is!
With wishes, true and kind -- Joan
