Cheryl, I went to the show in Sisters last year with a friend. It was the first time there for me. I have been to a few of the quilt shows near Corvallis. I haven't been to any of the ones in Portland. We moved to Oregon in 2005.

My grandfather was a full blooded Blackfoot Indian, the issue is that he had alias names. Now we think he may have been connected to the Mob from Wisconsin and Illinois. He was put in prison in the 40's (42 through 45) for cattle rustling. My mother remembers visiting him behind concrete walls and bars. We will have to exchange email addresses so I can message you more. I will message you my email address.
