All's quiet on the quilt front....

Not too many posts over the last few days/weeks. Everybody must be tucked away in their sewing rooms trying to ignore the weather and the resultant February cabin fever. Since Jane mentioned their quilt show, I thought I should mention ours as well since many of you are close enough to come. Our guild, Prairie Piecemakers, is holding their show on Friday and Saturday, March 26th and 27th at the former Middle School in New Ulm. We will be hanging quilts along all the corridors on the main floor, from the balcony in the auditorium, and around the perimeter of the stage. We will have vendors in the middle of the stage (ten of them including a long arm) as well as a Quilter's Cafe, lots and lots of doorprizes, a kids display and a Quilts of Valor display. We will be "naming" all of the corridors so people can find their way around the school and don't miss anything--Batting Blvd., Quilt Sandwich Drive, Drunkard's Path, etc. We have a great committe for the show and it really seems to be falling into place. Hopefully by the end of March the big snow pile in the parking lot of the school will be almost gone, we won't have sleet and freezing rain like we have today, and we'll have gorgeous spring weather....

For all the details on my guild's show in August go to www.smokymtnquilters.org . Rules, categories and entry form is there. There is also a Facebook presence on www.facebook.com. I think you have to be a member on Facebook to reach it. It's listed under the guild's name, Smoky Mountain Quilters. As of this evening the guild web page has more information than the Facebook page. We want exhibitors from far and wide.
