I spent the last three days at the Creative Stitches Show in Abbotsford. It was a wonderful but exhausting few days. It started with hanging quilts for our guild's Modern Mini Challenge and also the big quilts. We even knocked over a portable wall and sent quilts flying. Our guild also gave several seminars including live quilting demos on the big stage. Our lovely Lysa gave a fabulous talk on Modern Quilting while Cynthia, Vera and I made modern quilt blocks. Vera was on her featherweight, I was on the cutting board and Cynthia on the iron. We got pretty slick by the last demo let me tell ya! And Lysa, was a star!
Anyway, it felt good to be home last evening after three days of quilty fun including some shopping. The vendors were so busy! I did manage to find some low volume stuff and some lovely greys, including a chunk of Alyssa Haight Carlton's modern solids. That is the lovely grey solid that sort of looks like a cross weave. Oh, my goodness is it ever lovely and they colours in the line are drool worthy. Locally, they are available at the Needle and I in Burnaby.
I also picked up some linen and some trims... the linen dots and some of the trims were from Cathy at Steam Trunk Craft Works. The rest of the stuff came from A Threaded Needle. They always have such cute linen prints for making Zakka stuff! I picked up the wee charms there too. Back to school tomorrow. Apparently 59 instructional days left in the school year and they will just fly by!
