Friend Jacqi from "Keep Me in Stitches" at IQF Houston, Oct. 30, 2010

Jacqi's in Houston, Texas this week having a great time seeing all the exhibits and shopping at market for her Appleton, WI quilt shop.  She took time out of her busy week to send me this photo of her and my quilt, "Walk of the Cranes" which is a finalist at the International Quilt Festival in Houston this year.   Thank you Jacqi!  Can't wait to see what you buy at market for the shop!  Thanks for thinking of the picture, especially since you're in it!

Sandra Began Event at Butte des Morts Country Club Oct 22-23

This is my booth from the Sandra Began Shopping Event this past weekend.  It was a lovely location with a great crowd.  Lots of shoppers on Friday night and Saturday.  Had lots of great comments and met some very nice shoppers and exhibitors.  I would call it a very successful event.  Next year's event is already scheduled for October 14-15, 2011.  Mark your calendars for a fun two days of shopping!  Check out Sandra Began  on Facebook to see a list of unique exhibitors.

SAQA Auction a huge success - "Siberian" sold

Studio Art Quilters Association has an annual auction of 12 inch square art quilts donated by SAQA members on a voluntary basis.  This is the first year I've contributed a piece to the effort.  I am happy to say my art quilt, "Siberian" sold to someone from New Jersey, thank you very much.  The money raised through this auction goes to help SAQA member fiber artists put on exhibitions and all the costs that go along with it.  I believe the money raised this year was over $50,000.  Wow!  SAQA is a great group, I have learned so much from all the other members who generously share their knowledge and experience in this medium.
