Last evening I had the pleasure of doing a trunk show for the Sackville, New Brunswick Quilt Guild. I fussed for a couple of days over what to take - how many, how few, which ones? After 26 years in the biz, there are a few (!) quilts in my closet(s). I always figure it's better to take too many than not enough but the weight of these monsters adds up quickly. In the end I went with 8 bags full.
It's always a treat for me to go to Sackville, as I have such fond memories of the town from my days there as a student. It was an extra special treat to meet this genuine, generous, enthusiastic group of quilters and get to spend an evening immersed in all things quilting. For sure, I was given a warm, royal welcome - picked up at my door and delivered back, bags carried, tea made...plus they gifted me with fabric!
I've been invited back to present a workshop in the spring, and I can't wait to go. I know it will be a fabulous day spent in their company. Sincere thanks to all for the reception you gave me last evening - gosh, a girl could get a swelled head pretty quick! - especially to Darlene, Greta and Gail. See you in May!
