Quilt Show Ends and Thank You's

We want to thank Tony Boothby for allowing us to use his store front. It was perfect for our show. We could not have done this without our friends from the Friday Lunch Bunch. They jumped in to help setup, clean up and staffed the show as well. Big thank you to Lynne for doing the staging for the show. Thanks Trenton for the loan of the quilt poles.

I put on two demonstrations at the quilt show. One was on making fiber necklaces and the other was creative ways to use buttons.

Lynn from Decades gave a History of the American Quilt.

Jeri gave several demonstrations on using embellishments on your quilts. She is wearing her latest creation. Notice the grand necklace. It is called Primitive Howl. She made it while she was feeding the horses and mucking out the stalls. She is one talented lady. At the end of the show she presented it to me.

Not only did people come in droves but we had a doggie visitor as well. This is Banjo.

He even sat in on one of the demonstrations, gave a big yawn and settled down for his afternoon nap.

Here are the fearsome four that put the whole show together. Suzie, Celeste, April and Jeri. Yes we are still friends.

Carolyn drove all the way from Key West so she could see her Grandmothers Quilt.

After closing down the show it was time for some libations and just having a good time. Bev Hilton and her husband joined us. She is the President of the American Sewing Guild Ocala Chapter.
