Tammy here! I'm finally digging out - from the snow and all the wonderful goodies I brought back from QuiltCon. Hey, I like to shop too!
First, I know that I didn't keep you up to date with all the happenings here on my blog as I planned. Douglas took care of Twitter and Instagram but I neglected the blog and facebook. Believe me, I had good intentions but there was just never enough time.
I want to say thank you to all the QuiltCon attendees that came by to say hi. I met so many lovely customers and it was great to trade stories and finally connect outside of the virtual world!
I have the best customers in the world! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Here's my main crew - Douglas and Lisa (I'm on the right). They are the best! It took more than the 3 of us make it through QuiltCon though. I couldn't have done it without the wonderful support of my local guild. The ladies attending QuiltCon from the Kansas City Modern Quilt Guild stepped in on many occasions to help out in the booth. Plus there was unpacking and packing to be done and everytime I turned around there were wonderful friends to lend a hand. You know who you are guys and I love you!
There were so many great things that happened at QuiltCon and I don't really know where to start. Looking through my photos, I see that I took plenty of photos of quilts and not near enough of my friends and the activities. I did run across this photo and I have to share the story behind it.
We were really busy at QuiltCon and each of us are somewhat picky about fast food so we decided early on that we would pack our lunch while we were there. This is Douglas making sandwiches on a make-shift ironing board and 2 stools. Notice the empty bolt he's using as a plate! Those peanut butter and jelly sandwiches were the best!
One of the other highlights of Quiltcon was seeing my quilt hanging in the show. I'm not sure how to express my surprise when I saw the 3rd place ribbon for Minimalist Design (large) hanging with it. I'm truly honored that it was hanging with so many awesome quilts.
So you might imagine that Lisa, Douglas and I are still recovering from last week. You're right. We haven't even gotten together for a debrief. When we do, I'll copy their photos and share some more with you. If you followed us on Pinterest, you know there are many other stories to be told.
Next time, I'll share photos from the 80s party. That was a hoot!
