One of my favorite things is to attend local quilt shows or national shows. I have been attending Road to California for over 17 years. I always stop by “Come Quilt With Me”, Pat Yamin’s booth.
Pat lives in Brooklyn and has been a long time participant, both as a vendor and a teacher. Her templates are the easiest to use and she has a terrific teaching style – very open, very helpful and is always prepared for anything.
If you see a flyer in your town or at the local fabric store about a show, take a moment and attend. Quilting has changed – it’s not just little old ladies anymore. The patterns are bold with color and shapes but there are also the traditional quilts displayed.
It’s a pleasant way to spend a couple of hours. Road to California will be opening up registration for the 2014 conference and Long Beach Convention will be held at the end of July. Wear good walking shoes and bring your camera. Lots of great ideas and color combinations to enjoy. I’m wearing my Martini In The Morning Race for the Cure Shirt.
If you like great music while you are quilting, check out http://www.martiniinthemorning.com for Michael Blube, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr and so many more.
Thanks for reading.
