Off to Japan!

Well...my quilt is, not me... I am thrilled to learn that Simply Stated: A Portrait of Anne As A Young Girl has been awarded first place in the 100 Years of Anne category in the Kindred Spaces Textile Show. This show was organized to honour the 100th anniversary of the publication of Anne of Green Gables. In addition to the $1000. cash prize, the quilt travels to Yokohama, Japan to be exhibited in their International Quilt show, November 6 -8, 2008.
If anyone is lucky enough to be travelling in the area at this time, and would like more info on how to get to the show, here's the site: http://www.viq.com/english/iqw/yokohama/iqwy.htm
(And if anyone has a couple of extra tickets to Japan just lying around, well...!
