Last weekend I was in Kansas at the Heartland Quilt Network. I drove home Saturday night to beat the snow!
I had a nice time.
I met Dawn Heese from Linen Closet Quilts.
Had a quick catch up with Missy Carpenter from Traditional Primitives.
Had a nice chat with Barb Eikmeier of Barb's Favorites and saw the art work for her new fabric line.
I met several other wonderful and generous quilting professionals, all listed on the website above.
This Thursday I will be in Chicago for Quilt Festival - Chicago. Unfortunately there is snow in the forecast for the back end of this trip, so I may stay and extra day if need be.
The good new is I will be back in Kansas May 1.
Blue Valley Quilters Guild - Looking forward to your program!
I am bringing many of my hexagon quilts to Overland Park, Kansas. There is a lecture and trunk show followed by a workshop.
Maybe I will see you there?
Also in May I am doing a couple programs for the Minnesota Embroidery Guild. One on Early Girlhood Sewing and a second, by special request, on Lucie Huig Dunnibier. Let me know if you are interested in these and I can get you details.
May 18 & 19 I will be at Penn Dry Goods at the Schwenkfelder in Pennsburg PA. An annual event I love. As always I will fly out a few days early for antique shopping and museum visits.
At the end of May I plan to be in Lincoln Nebraska at the International Quilt Study Center to see the Annette Gero exhibit of wool quilts, "War and Pieced - The Annette Gero Collection of Quilts from Military Fabrics". Her book, "War Quilts and Quilts From Military Fabrics" is a wonderful resource if you would like to learn more about these special quilts.

June 13-16, I will be in Saint Cloud Minnesota at the Minnesota Quilters Annual Show. This year, we
have the AQSG Traveling exhibit of Basket Study Quilts - look for me there. I will also be giving a lecture on Saturday morning. The Minnesota Quilt Project will have a special exhibit of Red & White Quilts in their booth to celebrate the 40th Ruby Anniversary of the Guild. There are all kinds of vendors, classes, exhibits and more at the show.
I've heard from some of you that are getting a hotel and staying for a few days - I look forward to saying hello!
I'll be doing lots of portable hand stitching in the coming weeks.
If your guild or shop is interested in having me visit and do a program(s) for you - let me know I have several options we can make fun plans with!
