I am back from the Pacific Northwest Quiltfest in Seattle. What a show! This is the third time I have been to this show and each time I leave this show, I feel so humbled in my quilting skills. The quilts at this show really represent some of the best there is in our industry today.
Unfortunately, I can not show photos of the quilts. The policy of this show is to allow photographs of the quilts for personal use only. Publication of the photos in any media is forbidden–that includes posting to my blog page as it is considered a public place.
I can show you a picture that was taken yesterday in the Merchant Mall of the show though. The two gals in the middle–Lucy in the orange and Laurie in the green–are friends we made on the bus trip that Dot (on the far right in the white) and I took to Sisters in 2005. Lucy and Laurie are both from the Kelowna guild and we saw them at the Quiltfest in 2006 as well. It is always a wonderful surprise to meet up with quilting friends!
While at the show, we learned that Quilt Canada will be in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from May 25 to 30, 2009. It is unlikely that I will make that show.
However, we did find out that Quilt Canada 2010 will be in Calgary. Marguerite is back organizing the bus trips for the Kelowna guild and they are planning to attend Calgary in 2010. Dot and I told Lucy and Laurie to keep us in mind for 2010. If Marguerite is organizing the bus tours again, all who attend are sure to have a great time!
Calgary, here we come!
