News update

A quick note to let you know that the Georgia Quilt Show was wonderful.  Lots of beautiful quilts and fun students.   We drove through tons of rain to get to Duluth, which wasn't a lot of fun, but the weather cleared up and turned cooler, which was such a delight for these Floridians!!!

The day before the show actually opened I taught a class on needle turn applique.  They made a wallhanging size of Ring Around the Posies.
                                              



Opening day brought more students and shoppers.  I didn't have my own booth to set up, but shared a booth with 4 other teachers/designers...It was an eclectic group to say the least...I do believe you will be able to see which end of the booth was mine.  lol
It was great fun getting to meet other teachers.  We all worked in the booth when we could...some of our husbands even kicked in when we were teaching classes.



I taught my color class next and then totally forget to get a group picture.  I kept them pretty busy using about 1,000 fat quarters - building and rebuilding blocks that they would be proud of.  (I apologize to all those students for not getting a picture!)

The trunk show came next and I wish you could have seen us traisping through the convention center with a couple of bigl dollies piled high with 90+ quilts.  No pictures were taken during the trunk show either, but everyone said they enjoyed it.  Curt had customers in the booth and told them about it and just before the last few quilts were shown, about 8-10 of them came in..........sorry they didn't get to see the entire thing.

The Cold Days class was next and what a hoot it was!  I had them drawing their own snowmen and - well, you'll see by the pictures they had fun embellishing their own.  Each one looked different.











 
Before I left I stated that I would be offering kits of any of the classes I taught while at the show. I left with 40 kits, but between classes and selling kits in the booth -   Here's a list of what is available and the cost.  It will be on a first come first serve basis, so let me know right away if you are interested.

Ring Around the Posies -  3 kits,  $59.00 each
Gabrielle - 5 kits, $51.00 each
Cold Days - 3 kits, $65.00
The Bundling Board - 7 kits, $59.00

After 4 days at the show we left for the mountains and little R&R - The weather was beautiful and these "leaf peepers" had a great time taking over 300 pictures of all that wonderful color.  I was told in two more weeks they would be even more beautiful...but, don't see how that could happen.  Here's just a few pictures.  Hope to share more as I find the time to get them uploaded.



Last, but not least I wanted to share with you that I have a new gal working on my new website.  After almost 5 months I hope to have a website that I do work on.  Lisa is laying the ground work and I'll be transferring everything over as soon as she can get it ready.    Thank you so much for your patience during these months.  I know you can still order the stuff already there, but nothing new is posted.    I hope you'll enjoy the new improved website!  Coming soon!!!!!

Until next time,

Lynda
