Id love to share photos but Im not sure that Im allowed to post quilt photos. I did get permission to take pictures at some of the booths. This is a photo of longarm quilter Dusty Farrell www.cscountrystitchin.com. I bought one of his books and one of his dvds. One of the great things was having a chance to talk to him. He is down to earth and caring. Quick to offer his knowledge and help. He had 2 quilts in the show that were just awesome.
Then I got a chance to meet Jenny Doan of Missouri Star Quilts. She was so sweet and outgoing. She did a demonstration and gave a speech that just had you smiling and laughing along with her wonderful sense of humor.
By the end of the day we were tired but you needed to be there when they did the prize drawings. The Grand Prize from the first day was a Pfaff hobby sewing machine. The announcer spun this big wheel and pulled out a card. He started saying the name of the winner when to my surprise and good fortune it was my name he was calling. Hede I am picking up my new sewing machine. Am I lucky or what? (Last month I won a quilting retreat)
Yay me! :)
