Fun Times at Quilt Festival Long Beach

Make It University 2009 #1The International Quilt Festival Long Beach was last weekend and I worked at the show doing demos at The Quilt Attic. I saw lots of friends and made some new ones. The quilts were great. The vendors were too. It’s a show definitely worth attending.

Make It University 2009 001We were located right accross from Make It University, sponsored by Quilt Art Magazine. Thats Pokey in the blue shirt. On Saturday night they had a 60’s contest. and the participants had to make something they could wear or carry out of the provided materials. They also had to sing and dance for additional materials and help. I have to admit we were dancing and singing along a little. And did I mention, there were fabulous prizes involved.

I did squeeze in a couple of the classes at Make It University. I’ll have more about that in my next post.

    It was such a treat to meet you face-to-face at the IQF Long Beach show. And the show was wonderful.

    By the way, I did post a photo of you at the show on my blog: http://www.sewcalgal.blogspot.com
