HI everyone! Last night I presented my trunk show to the Piecemakers Quilt Guild in Saginaw, Michigan. I had a blast! The guild members were wonderful! Guess who forgot to take pictures??? That would be me, the one and only!
I have all my trunk show quilts packed and ready to go!
Count them! There are 6 suitcases ready to go!
I spent the last two days pretty much preparing for this guild presentation. A lot of work goes into the prep. One thing I brought with me that I have never done before is bring fabric with me to sell. Now, I have a store front (website store) but I don’t sell fabric. I was helping a girl friend out. She, Deb, had hand surgery this past Tuesday morning and will be out of sorts for a little while. I told her I would bring some fabric to sell at my trunk show.
And this is Cheri! My awesome assistant, helper! She was refolding all the quilts after each was displayed. You can find out about Cheri Terry here on her Facebook page:
I left the guild meeting packed and ready to hit the road home I believe around 9:30pm. It is a 75 mile drive. About mid way home, there was an accident on I-75South. The police and firemen made us all get off the interstate and well, they did not tell us which way to go! Navigation was telling me to get back on the interstate, lol…after a few wrong turns I got on the right road and made it home by around 11pm. It is always an adventure!
Before I traveled to Saginaw, I stopped off in Chesaning, Michigan. I wonder what I was doing there?
Oh!! Do you remember me talking about planning a retreat? Maybe not? Well if you are a member of my Facebook group: Sew Anyways with Nancy McNally you will probably remember that discussion. Sew Anyways, I stopped by the Creative Passions Crop & Quilt Retreat!! Oh my peas!! It is beautiful!!
Love Love Love
I could not believe how beautiful it is inside and spacious!! And Laura showed us around. I can’t wait to plan my first retreat there!
I’m going to get the ball rolling on this soon! I spoke with Laura yesterday and I’m thinking a longarm retreat and a retreat for us piecers! Woo-Hoo! If you want to participate in either retreat, keep watching for me to make announcements.
Happy Quilting everyone!
