I just returned from a trip to the Quilt Market in Kansas City. While I was there, I made many new connections with some pretty amazing people and companies. One such person was Jim in the Colonial Needle Company booth. We got to talking about Precensia thread, and pretty soon the conversation shifted to our outdoor quilt show, Quilts of the Plains. Jim made a generous offer to send an item to our show… I just emailed him the details, and I’m sure he’ll be sending something way cool…. You’ll have to come and see for yourself. It may be an item for the silent auction, or maybe a giveaway… Hmmmm.
If you’d like to check out their website it is www.colonialneedle.com and be sure to check out the article about sewing needles. I found it to be very interesting. http://www.colonialneedle.com/html/about-needles.html
As I’ve said before, the show is coming up on June 23rd, 2012 in Wray, Colorado. The quilts for display will be dropped off at Rainbow Fabrics between June 18th and June 21st, however, I usually receive some out of town quilts early. This year is no exception… I’ve already got a few great quilts lined up in my studio, which I will enter into the show for some out-of-towners. They are planning to come to the show, but this simple act saves them a second trip to drop off their quilt at Rainbow Fabrics.
Add a comment to my blog about your experiences at Quilts of the Plains… What did you enter? Have you seen a favorite quilt on display there? Have you won a prize or ribbon? Whatever you can add to this discussion… others will enjoy reading!
Thanks for stopping by, and good luck finishing your projects. I’ll look for them in the show!
