If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been in the US for a nearly month-long holiday leading up to QuiltCon in Savannah, Georgia. Outrageously large unicorn tote in tow, I headed down from North Carolina with Swampy to see some quilts and friends! I don’t want to have a really long post (though I didn’t take many photos at all!) so I’m splitting this up into a post for the exhibition and a post for friends and the class I took.

The first day, Thursday, we leisurely explored the exhibit hall to see all the quilts. I only took pictures of a couple because I guess I’m very particular? I enjoyed many of the award winning quilts (there is certainly no doubt Bling was the Best in Show), but there’s plenty of photos of those floating around so I’ve chosen not to include them here. (P.S. I used a new camera to take these pictures so if they look especially bad it’s because I don’t know what I’m doing with it yet!) (more…)

Alberon flyer

The quilting group I’m a member of, Monday Modern, is exhibiting quilts made by members at Alberton, a historic house in Mt. Albert here in Auckland.  On September 26th and 27th, we will have some activities set up for children and adults to enjoy from 2 to 4 p.m.  I will be there on Sunday the 27th if you want to say “hi!”

If you want to learn more about our group or check out some sneak peek photos of the show, please visit our Flickr group!

2013 Post-its
It’s that time again– First Friday, December 6th at LemonDrop’s new-ish location, 407 N. Boonville Avenue in Springfield, Missouri from 6 to 10pm.  Stop by early to see all the post-its before they find homes!

Post-It Show

LemonDrop is having another Post-It Show for December’s First Friday, December 7th. It starts at 6 and continues until 9, but be there early if you want to see all the post-its before the purchasing begins at 7:30. Post-It artworks by a variety of local and formerly-local artists (like me!) will be available to purchase for $1 each. This show is a great way to start your art collection without breaking the bank, and with the holidays around the corner, remember art is always a great gift! Proceeds benefit the artists and LemonDrop.

This event is taking place at 416 Commercial Street in Springfield, Missouri. Here’s the event page on the ol’ Facebook.
