Quilt Show ready!

I belong to the Palm Harbor quilt guild "Quilters' Crossing" and our biennial quilt show is this coming weekend - 2/11 and 2/12.  I have quilted several of the quilts that will be hanging in the show.  Here is one of them:

 I'll be at the show on Saturday morning for a few hours and at the shop the rest of the time.  Stop by the show, see some wonderful quilts, meet some unique vendors, and maybe win a doorprize!

We had a celebrity in the store last week.  I was back in the office working when Brenda came bouncing back there, breathless, saying something about Isabella and wool and TV and OH MY GOSH, you have to come out here!!!
Long story short, Isabella Hoffman was in the store.  She is the author of a book about felting wool and Brenda had seen her on a "Sewing with Nancy" episode.  "Bella" is a character!! 

Her work is gorgeous (come see a sample in the shop) and she will be back in a couple of months to teach at the store.  She loves "Woolylady" wool and that is how she found the shop - we are the only shop in Florida that carries Woolylady wool!

The winner from the comments on last weeks blog is Holly Heheheheh!  Congrats and we will see you in the shop soon!

I love reading all the comments!  Thanks to everyone who wrote.

  1. Loved the quilt show. It was my first so I didn't know what to expect. Lots of beeeuuuteeefull quilts and wearable art! And the shopping opportunity was great too (although I saved all my pennies to spend in a store called Crafty Threads). Thanks for the mini long-arm lesson and I look forward to being your first long arm student. I asked Joe to borrow some of his shop tools to stretch my arms to make them long. (Hahaha)See you Thursday.
