Last weekend I went to visit my daughter at college for the first time. I am happy to say she is settling in very well and loving all her new friends, both human and equine. I never figured her to be a “Horse Girl” as she put it, but she is loving it and doing great. Things here have shifted into high gear as well, with a large number of conservation projects and private lessons happening lately I have barely had time to get ready for the show Columbus Day weekend. I only vend at the two local guild shows, and this year is Quilts in the Valley, the Wiltwyck Guild Show. I still have a mountain of kits to cut and fabrics to organize so I am going to do something I have never done before, ask for help.
If you would be able to come in to help any time befire the show bplease contact me ASAP. 845 758 8541 I can’t pay you outright, but I am sure we can barter something inspiring.
Since I will be vending, we will have to close at noon on Friday to pack and transport to the site for setup, and with the show on Saturday and Sunday, the Shoppe will be closed. I encourage you all to attend the show, with vendors, lots of quilts, food and even live music. You know I love that!! I might even ask one of you who volunteer if you would sit with me at the booth one or both days. I always bring handwork to work on and demo. Makes things interesting and productive on several levels. Vending is fun and social and a great opportunity to meet new quilters. I am always amazed at the enthusiasm of all the brand new quilters I meet at these shows. For more information, http://www.Wiltwyckquilters.org
After the show, we have handstitchers club on Tuesday the 9th, and we will be finishing the embroidery stitch sampler. In November we will do the Redwork Ornament for 2018. It is a sister piece to last years design, with the drawing taken from the same source. Can’t show you yet, but this was the one from last year. This is one kind of Hex that I don’t mind. ( can you tell I am also getting into the Halloween spirit?? )
With all this wonderful stitchy stuff happening be sure to stop in, lend a hand, or get set up for your new fall projects. Looking forward to seeing you all.
