Val: what a fantastic show! Such a wide variety of traders with amazing products (and quilts) – workshops and truely amazing quilts – traditional/modern, artistic and creative, creations ranging from lingerie to vases, clothing to boxes. There was a wonderful showcase from the young graduates which is reassuring as it means that our passion will be continued.
The boys from Bizview.tv joined Jennie and I on the Sunday and we managed to get interviews to Gail Lawther and her husband Chris; Philippa Naylor, Karin Hellaby, Paula Doyle, SAQA, toured the Hanging Together exhibition and took shots of the quilts themselves. So keep an eye on our shedule for all this good stuff coming up.
The highlight of the show for me, though, was meeting the young man who had won first prize in the 5-8 year old competition sponsored by the Quilters Guild – Pearls from the Orient. He told me that he was 5 when he started the quilt, but 6 when he finished it! Not only was he a winner but his older sister Amy also had an entry – so it was a truely family event.
