A guild show and a new start

Back in September I received a phone call from a lady in a neighbouring town, asking if I’d be interested in having a table at their annual guild show. Of course I jumped at the chance! I was a little unsure of what I would have for displays at my table, but after consulting a few longarm groups on Facebook I decided to have a few samples of my work, a booklet of pantograph patterns that I offer, some business cards, and a handout on my pricing and how to prepare a quilt for your longarm quilter.

I had a pretty good day! I gave out a ton of cards, and more than half of the pamphlets I brought. I met some lovely people as well! I had forgotten how much i enjoy these shows. It was more than 4 years since my last show and I sure hope I don’t wait that long before I do another.

Once the show was done I found myself with a fair amount of work to complete. I spent the entire month of November and the first week of December getting stuff quilted up for all my new customers. I have two memory quilts to complete before Christmas and it’s going to be a lot of work, but I’m confident I can get them done. I’ll keep you updated on my progress as I go.

i live on the beautiful Saskatchewan prairie with my sweet man, my two darling boys, our dog trixie, 5 cats, three chickens, two horses, and a zillion frogs. i started sewing when i was 10 and did garment sewing for many years before i discovered quilting. i have been obsessed with quilting since 1994. i am self taught, so i may not do things 'by the book', but i don't think the quilt police are too concerned about l'il ol' me. my quilts are made to be loved and i hope i outlive them all!
