I haven't heard the official word of the number of people thru the door, but we were busy both days - even with Sunday being snowy and very blustery. That's me in the green (don't know what I am doing), Betty in the long blond hair - a very accomplished crazy quilter with her first book coming out in September, Karen (I think she is Amazonian - so tall!), and Emily who is a working machine!. All a bit of a break before heading to our next assigned stations. These were our Schoharie Vallery Piecemakers Quilt Guild table and Schoharie Valley Quilt Barn Trail table area.
And just to show - there is Catalicious with her ribbons. I was white gloving when one of our lovely guild members came by taking photos, so I had Steph do the honors. If I look tired, I was - I left for home shortly after my work session.
I have photos to share, but will spread them out. This was one of the pieces for the special exhibit 'Sacred Threads' and you can read about it HERE. You can view more of their pieces on the site. There were (I think) 50 pieces and always a huge crowd in front of it, this dog quilt was hung higher, so I could get a clear shot. It was nice to see that people took the time to read the story board that was with each piece - some would bring you to tears.
Kris Driessen was the Saturday Luncheon Lecture "Catching the Muse".
Nancy Mahoney was the Sunday Luncheon Lecture "Two Block Wonders".
There weren't a lot of 'modern' quilts in this show, but I fell in love with this quilt. Just love the panel and the color, setting is just so smooth and soothing. I put this one in for my vote for 'viewer's choice'.
And this is all I bought - 27 vendors and I didn't even go see them. These I bought at a guild's sale table. $1.50 for half yard cuts and $1 FQ's they were doing a fabulous business - all to fund their next bus trip (AQS in Syracuse, NY). The button FQ was from the 'thank you' basket from the show committee. I did buy the show pin for my name tag - need to photo that.
Would you believe? We are having the biggest snow storm of the winter - in SPRING!! Today!! I am going to snuggle with my furkids as they missed me over the weekend, will share more of the show tomorrow.
