I have been to the Houston International Quilt Festival for four years working with Superior Threads in their booth but this is the FIRST TIME as a teacher...what an experience and an honor. I taught my Open Thread Bar class, did a trunk show lecture on my wholecloth linen quilts and also taught a linen wholecloth workshop. Check out the next post for pictures from that workshop. My husband, Kent accompanied me to the show as he wanted to see a bit of "my world" and he was blown away by the amazing quilts and art...and of course the thousands of women! He had no clue :) We attended the Silver Star Salute dinner which not only honored the prize recipients but also bestowed Alex Anderson with her much deserved Silver Star award. If you have never been to the Houston Festival I highly recommend you make every effort to attend. It's like the Emmy's of the quilting world...you leave having been very inspired by the art but you also come home with much heavier suitcases from all the shopping you've done from over 1,000 vendors!
