Thank you to those concerned for my lack of post. Life has been a whirlwind of possibilities. I'm having a difficult time keeping up with it all. And if that wasn't enough, school is starting for me. I have just been so tired as of late. Enough said....
I didn't take many pictures during my trip to Pennsylvania. I think mainly because I was there last year and had reported on my visit.
The show was nice. It wasn't busy at all compared to others I have experienced. I think it was mainly due to being a weekday. Bonus for me! Some of the gals from my guild did mention that compared to prior years, the show was smaller this year. Never having been, I cannot judge, I just know that I had a good time. I didn't see any quilts that jumped out at me, so no pictures.
My number one priority at the show was to meet up with Pepper Cory, which I did at the lunch line. ;o)
Unfortunately, I was not able to take a course with her due to time constraint, but I did want to buy a copy of her book Mastering Quilt Marking. It's out of print and I was hoping she would have some copies on hands.
As you see, it was my lucky day! She even offered to autograph it for me!
My second priority was to seek out the APQS booth, the dealer being David & Gretchen Adams from Afton, NY.
I needed to find out what I'm either doing right or wrong with my longarm. I wanted to get a good feel of things, if you know what I mean!
I did find out that my top and backing rollers are much too tight and so is my loaded quilt. I need to loosen up! She did give me some pointers in regards to my clamps getting in the way.
My third priority was to shop for items I do not have access too in my neck of the woods!
And... Ya know, that pretty much means everything! ;o)
Yes, more hand embroidery patterns! How could I resist! You all know whose fault it is!!!!!! lol
One of the patterns is from Sandy Gervais. A while back I received a wonderful surprise from a dear friend and the pattern will be perfect for the charm pack.
I just love those "This & That" patterns. They make such sweet gifts for friends!
Given that we were going shop hopping all day on Saturday, I did stay away from any fabric purchase. Well......
I just could not resist this kit. The colours are just oh so delicious!
I'm telling you, the Fig Tree look is my new fad! Well, it is a Moda you know and ......... I'm such a Moda girl!
So there you have it, my day at the show! I had a great time shopping at quilt store booths that I would not have the opportunity to visit.
Thank you so much for stopping by! I enjoy reading your comments!
Have a great day every one!
