Serendipity! Not far- We will be 825mi from Gin (currently 826.2 or so to
your city hall). Historic Westminster - Harris Park - DeSpain Junction, CO.
Things are falling into place in my lap- There is a Historic Westminster,
and just a park between the new digs and the original DeSpain Junction train
station. (Not there, now) The last stop on the new Light Rail (Trolley- like
the Hikari and Kodama in Japan)  before downtown Denver will be right about
there.
Close enough to the new arts and crafts work shop to stop by for a cuppa or
a shot and catch the next run into Denver town. A coffee cart on the
platform and coffee/ roasting classes in the art center?
My current house is in Appleblossom Subdivision- this whole Gregory Hill
area was an apple orchard 100years ago. Appleblossom Blend? It could all
happen.
Cheers, Mabuhay -RayO, aka Opa!

Hope you knit too!

Embroidery and quilting are becoming art forms now. I now have a place and a
reason for a coffee quilt I've been machine quilting... Big wall hanging in
the coffee gallery with a stage for jazz and big band, etc.
My Celtic Critic Honey has taught machine embroidery and might help out with
a Celtic quilt. She also has three knitting machines. We could all wind up
teaching something. She has the matcheens- I won't need to knit. -ro

Straight stitch Singers, et al., were and still are adequate.
Have you seen the current machines -- some people have wives that drop $5
Big, to $7,500 (Hello!) on  >Home< sewing machines. They can put a stitch
anywhere, in any pattern on a framed piece of fabric using X-Y stepper
motors, and a speed-controlled main motor.
Who needs a long arm quilter for $16 Big? The Raptor left before I got the
espresso machine upgrade...

At 72nd/Bradburn you must be just a few blocks from my old buddy 
Mike--also not very far from where I used to live at 76th & Harlan.
Nice area.  I sometimes wish I was still there.
Best, RayO!

I *heart* my slant-needle. Even though I have a Janome that does a  
dozen different stitches, there's still nothing like a straight  
stitch on a machine with *gear drive* and a motor that'll plow  
through many layers of denim with enthusiasm.
