Two last days at Quilt Festival 2017

I was back in the class room on Saturday for Exploration of Folk Art Embroidery. An all day class doesn’t come cheap so I was pleased to have thirteen on the roster. And they all showed up on time, ready to stitch!We had a two hour break for lunch which I insisted everyone took! I gave another exhibit tour and then we were all back in our seats at two.There were all levels of experience represented in the room and I was glad to note that everyone made progress 🙂

Time for a night time view from the skywalk? The reflections in the buildings always fascinate me.

The clocks went back on Saturday night/Sunday morning. It felt positively lazy to head over the bridge just before ten to set up for my spot in Open Studios on Sunday morning. The title and name on the poster was right but the description was… interesting.
Never mind. I stitched and talked for my allotted two hours. Open Studios are a great opportunity to meet lots of people!

One last exhibit tour at one o’clock.and then just one more commitment left!The sign says it all?

It was my first time at Meet the Teacher and I had signed up very late for a spot in the lecture area at the very far end of the convention center. I was the last but one on the schedule…

I took a picture before I got started. There were a few people taking a break from shopping.I was talking about Walking Foot Quilting. It was good to have a microphone so I didn’t have to shout. There was a static camera set at one side of the table which I used to show my different examples.I think everyone could see and hear quite well.The audience had grown a little by the end of my time, so I took another picture.What a good looking crowd!!That’s Sheila at the back taking photographs. The green light is the auto focus in action…

The show closed at four so after all that excitement there was just time to wander around a couple more exhibits I hadn’t got to before.

(I do have lots of quilt pictures which I have finally had a look at. The plan is to share some of my favorites with you very soon.)

Sheila flew home Sunday evening so she set off on the airport shuttle while I hung around to help dismantle my exhibit and take it back to my room. I had a lot of packing to do…
