Today is an exciting day! At 10 AM this morning the doors open for the PENNSYLVANIA NATIONAL QUILT EXTRAVAGANZA XX. It will be exciting to see all the quilts, wall-hangings and wear-able & textile arts.
It is overwhelming to see the detail & work that has gone into all these items, many of which took months to make.
Also, at the Quilt Show there is a Vendor’s Mall. There is a wide variety of items to check out and buy! Fabric, Notions, Sewing & Long-Arm (Quilting) Machines, Cabinets, Finished Items, and more! There are vendors from all over the country and you get a chance to see more than just your local shops. Sometimes, I get to visit with some shops that are near where I live, but don’t always get to see.
I have the privilege to visit with some friends – Donna & Robert from Fabric Café in Tyler, Texas. They have some exciting news – the release of their new book – “Quick ‘n Easy 3-Yard Quilts” with 8 new patterns! I’ve been helping by pattern testing, making models, and proofing the book as it came together.
It has been both exciting and frustrating – You know how hard it is to keep a secret! I got to make some tops and wasn’t able to show ‘n tell them! Now I get to show them! Show here they are!
