Michele Cais / Tucson, Arizona, USA

Michele retired to Tucson, AZ in September 2011 from Buellton, California in search of blue sky’s and comfortable living. While in California she worked as a Clinical Services Coordinator in the medical services industry, based in Santa Barbara.  Michele and her husband were well known hikers and climbers who pioneered many new adventures in the rugged backcountry of the Los Padres.  Now they enjoy a change of pace from California chaparral to the Sonoran desert with hiking and photography in the mountains around Tucson.   Hobbies include fitness, hiking, biking, climbing, sewing, and training our wild weimpet (weimeranier/whippet mix) – Phoebe.

 

 

 

Casey & Maddie Johnson / Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA

Casey and Maddie are sisters and best friends!  They enjoy doing sewing projects together, so this quilt was fun to create.  This is Maddie’s second year participating in the Sari Bari quilt auction, and Casey and Maddie both feel that this quilt was even more fun and turned out even better than the first!
