But with Judy and Summer, two other founding members of the Elm Creek Quilters, departing to pursue other opportunities, will the new teachers be able to fill in the gaps created by the loss of their expertise -- and more important, their friendship? When I think of all the different paths I could have followed in my life, all the twists and turns that could have led me anywhere, muses incoming teacher Gretchen, its something of a miracle that I ended up here, surrounded by loving friends.
