Quilt Market: Quilter’s Schoolhouse

Excitment and anticipation was in the air our first day at the convention center! Quilter’s Schoolhouse is where we spent our first day. Attendees were given a large booklet of “classes” to choose from, 15 sessions in all! Each session lasted from 15 to 30 minutes, and we had to choose quickly choose which sessions to attend, then zoom off to find the classroom. Before I even knew it, 15 sessions had flown by, and it was 6 in the evening! Boy, was I thankful for my coworkers’ tips to have energy bars and a water bottle with me!

Lynette Anderson got lots of ooohs and aaahs from the classroom as she showed us her latest designs combining hand embroidery with quilting.

Jinny Beyer wowed us with her amazing color theory, and Therm O Web showed us their new Featherlite fusible web and iron-on vinyl. Amy Butler presented her beautiful Lark fabric line, and Edyta Sitar absolutely charmed us with her delightful new book, Reasons for Quilts.

    I do so much enjoy your articles and pictures—-I am “in charge” (if you want to put it that way) of our quilt group(s) at our church. We quilt every Monday, 1 group in the morning, one in the afternoon. About a year ago we acquired a large donation of fabric from a gal whose mother (was a quilter) and had passed on. In fact, the amount of fabric was so large that the parish council ok’d installing cupboards in our quilt room, now we are in “quilt heaven. I am going to plant the idea of us doing our own planning, cutting, etc. and make our own quilt tops/quilts for our church festival in the fall. It is going to be fun and very rewarding. Thanks for the ideas.
