Office and Factory Fun

As I mentioned in my last post, I got an opportunity to fly out to Nebraska and visit AccuQuilt headquarters.  I am sure some of you remember the Barn Quilt contest and unveiling.  They still have the Winner and runner up displayed on the building. 

The "bike" in the lower right belongs to Tim the Harley Quilter - CFO of AccuQuilt.
There are lots of quilts inside the office area.  Just look:

There were more, but I didnt' get to take pictures of them all.  

I met some nice people too. Carolyn and Tim were in the hallway. 
Steve Nabity was smiling as he showed me the quilt he made. (look on the floor behind him - I do believe I see a GO! cutter. )
And outside I saw Lee Nakamoto and Tim - the Harley Quilter - someone (not me!) had left Tim a surprise on his bike. Lee apparently thought it was pretty funny!
It was....some lady left a lipstick kiss on his mirror. So he puckered up for an "onscreen kiss" 
I don't know if you can see the lipstick in the  mirror...but trust me it is there. 
I had fun!  I also saw inside the factory but I was too busy looking to take any pictures. Silly me!

I wonder how many non-quilters pass that building with the word "GO" on it and have no idea what it means.
Looks like you went to a fun party!

Thank you for sharing your pictures. Looks like you had a great time. I'm just a little jealous.

I had no idea AcuQuilt GO was located in my home state of Nebraska! Go figure!!! But then, all kinds of good things come from Nebraska. I've seen alot about these cutters lately and I'm SOOOOoooo tempted!
