Catalogs are out now for two great Machine Quilting Events —
Machine Quilters Exposition — April 14-19, 2008 — Manchester, NH
Machine Quilters Showcase — May 14-17, 2008 — Overland Park, KS
I call this to your attention to make sure you know that yours truly will be teaching at BOTH events this year!
I would also encourage machine quilting readers to consider entering quilts into one or both of these events. It’s not about WINNING — I like to go and look at all of the quilts, not just the fancy-shmancy ones. The nice things about these shows that are focused on machine quilting is that the have categories for and encourage people to enter quilts that are NOT super-fancy — we want to see the everyday quilts that are actually quilted the way you quilt for your customers (or for yourself if you aren’t in business.)
Speaking of which, I need to get my act together and get my entries in progress NOW, instead of later — MQX is a juried show this year, so the deadline is even earlier (and they have to be finished!)
I think Deb and I are going to MQS again next year. We had a lot of fun this year and Kansas is kinda in the middle between FLA and MN so it’s a good place for us to meet.
I don’t enter shows but Deb had a quilt win an honorable mention this year at MQS. I know she’s planning an entry for next year too.
Ok Suzanne I have made copies of the entry forms for both shows and plan to get at least one quilt in one of the shows. Seems like I am getting tons of business in the past few weeks and am wondering if my longarm business is gonna begin to really take off. If so I will be busy, busy, busy but I did ask for this……………smile!
