It's the only catalog I look forward to receiving! I just got one today and when I went to order the Gudari quilt (queen) they were already on backorder. I couldn't even pay for it in my shopping cart...Sundance site wouldn't let me. After a few phone calls, I hopefully got to the right person at Sundance. Robin in Customer Service. She was very helpful and took my order over the phone (which I couldn't even do in a previous call) and she pretty much assured me that I would get one! I'm ordering things for my new cabin where I'm setting up my art studio and this quilt is thee most gorgeous quilt I've ever seen!! I have students coming in from all over the world to study art with me and they will be staying in the cabin...so I'm really looking forward to getting this quilt! Thanks!

Glad to hear that someone else has the same Sundance obsession.

I love the Sundance catalogue as well and am looking forward to the day that I have my own income to splurge on something like those sari quilts you wrote about. Buying one will be my equivalent of saving the first dollar(s) that I make with my social work degree!
I also love turtles and really appreciate your sharing the picture. The way I see them is that they are connecting, even if they don't stop and meet face-to-face...Like the two of us in DC: Even if we hadn't met in person, from my perspective, we had already connected! Namaste!

I tore off the front cover and pulled out the pages with the sari quilts as soon as I got my catalog today! I especially liked the cover so you could see all the stitching up close.

We'll miss you -- enjoy the last week of April!
