Please meet Alvina. She is a Goetz Natterer who kept her original name despite our best efforts to find another name. It means "elf friend," which seems to fit her personality just fine. She came here from across the seas on May 4, 2006. She lived in the United Kingdom before coming to the US, so she has a unique German/British accent that's quite unlike anything I've ever heard before! She loves to sew, quilt and do embroidery. She's great at deciphering directions and helping other people figure out how to finish challenging projects! We are really glad to have her here. She is eagerly looking forward to Spring and can't wait to see the yard embroidered with flowers.
