For the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup WA, I’ve developed a new lecture called The Garden of Eden. It’s all about Eve, the first quilt maker. The story begins with her first quilt created from a fig leaf. And ends with the tragic tale of her being cast out of a quilt store for touching fabric printed with apples. The premier of the lecture is today. I shall be looking for a few puns. If you have any available, please leave them in the comments section of this post.
This is why I’m leaving town. That and the opportunity to visit with people attending the Sewing and Stitchery Expo in Puyallup WA. You can find me in booth #915 (Bear Thread Designs) when I’m not flitting around. Frieda and I will be giving our signature “Two Hot Fuser Chicks” lecture on Saturday. If you attend you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll wonder why. Hope to see you there!
There is a rarity in the quilt world you need to know about. Her name is Sherida and she writes for the Daily Sentinel Newspaper in Grand Junction CO. Some may think that writing about quilting is as dull as oatmeal on a winter’s day. But her insightful articles are refreshing and well researched. It is not often that you find someone with an engaging way of chronicling a soft-spoken hobby like quilt making. We need accomplished writers like Sherida to record and document our quilt world. We are lucky to have her.
