First of all, on behalf of Girls Gone Stitch’n I would like to thank all of you who braved the warm weather to come visit our quilt show last weekend. Many of you were so generous to allow us to include your beautiful quilts in the show, one could easily see the talented women that were represented. “How can I vote for just one?” was heard over and over again. We are happy to congratulate Lani Ulvila who won best of show with her large sample quilt, entirely hand pieced and hand quilted!! We promise to add more categories next year!!! Mark your calendar for the last weekend in August 2012 for our next show.
Speaking of quilt shows, please remember to zip over to Lakeport on Oct. 1st & 2nd for The Ladies of the Lake Quilt show. It is one of my favorite shows of the year, fantastic quilts, great vendors, demonstrations all in a warm friendly atmosphere, hope to see you there.
I received another shipment of batiks today and there are many beauties among them. If you haven’t stopped by lately the batik room is bursting! Also new fabrics by Fabric Freedom are on their way, and I am in the middle of putting out Christmas samples to get you in the mood. Check out the class offerings which include a couple of Christmas projects.
Now that it is fall we can come indoors, dust off that sewing machine, and get started on a few projects. Happy stitch’n!
