Well, I have failed my first resolution of the year. My 3 year old hand applique project is still sitting untouched beside my chair. I did search for a thimble - does that count? My other resolution is to eat healthly but that doesn't count as it is an annual promise. I work full time for Pellon so I am justified in the delay.
I am preparing for the Road2California show in Ontario, CA beginning Jan. 19th. A lot goes into the preparation of being a vendor at large shows. You shop owners and designers know that. It is hard work but somehow we enjoy every bit of it. I love talking to quilters from new areas and seeing the work from a new region. This show is just east of LA and is one of the best. Quilters from all around the world attend.
I have taught for this show and hear great reviews on the workshops. They have added long arm quilting classes. Legacy by Pellon provides the batting as a way to sponsor them. We will have regional distributors in the booth.
If I figure out how to upload pictures ..... I will post some shots from the show, and maybe a palm tree or two. I stay with a friend who has orange and lemon trees lining her street. Depending on where you live, this show can be a great escape. I always look forward to it.
