    LeighLo Quilts on Hiatus

    NOOOoooooo......!

    With my BDay coming up I was begging the wife to get me a new 60" 20* UQ from Leigh. When I went to the website today to drool over that fluffy goodness I found a the following message:
    Dear Vistor,

    I am currently on haitus and thus not accepting orders. We are working on some new designs and innovations to make our quilts even better! I hope you all are as exicted as I am about these developments. I will give an more information as those updates are fleshed out.

    I would like to thank everyone for their kind words, suggestions and comments.

    Thanks again!

    Leigh

    Come back ...

    Bummer!

    Tis one of the prices of doing business with the little guys/ladies, they actually have a life. Before ULA got sold, you could count on not being able to order/receive items for about 4-5 months every year while Brian went hiking. Was always worth the wait! In this case, she says she is working on new designs and innovations in addition to being on haitus. That should make the waiting a little more bearable anyway.
    Trust nobody!

    Rats!
    I've been contemplating an order, but waited too long.
    Oh well, it will be exciting to see what's coming down the line...

    I admire that young lady and want to support her because she is paying her way through college doing this. Self motivation like that these days is to be commended! I can't wait to see her new designs!

    I feel the same way, although from the photographs her "old" designs are quite excellent.

    I just ordered just in time I guess! I should be receiving mine either today or Monday. I can't wait to use it next winter.

    I will be holding out for the new designs, but from a timing perspective . . .

    Guess I will have to tide myself over with a DIY tarp or backpack project. :-)

    If her old stuff is any indication as to the new stuff; then the new stuff will be worth the wait. I have an summer UQ and summer TQ of the older style and they rock!
