Quilt Fair Hobart


We had a fantastic 4 days away at the Hobart Quilt Fair. It is a completley different experience to be part of it than to visit as a customer. Just to be involved in the setting up was fun!! We meet some lovely people ( even a couple of bloggers.....it was great to meet both Cathy and Leanne) and saw a lot of yummy stuff. (please forgive my lack of pictures, I was way too busy!!):

We were able to launch my new BOM Tender Moments and it was received very well. Thanks to all of those who signed up and as promised I will be designing a cushion or two to send to you with your last pattern installment.

I think the highlight for me was teaching in the Craft Circle. I meet some many wonderful ladies and we all had a great time!! We even had a very talented lady sing to us while she stitched. I also had a gorgeous 11 year old girl called Emma participate and Im eagerly awaiting a picture from her of her progress!!

This is Faye and Pam!! There were 7 of us in a 3 bedroom house, so you can imagine the chatting and the laughter. We would all sit around at night, some of us stitching and some knitting, winding down after a busy day!! And of course we stayed up far too late and slept very little but it was an amazing experience that I was so lucky to be apart of!! Cant wait for the next one!!!!

WOW, looks like you had a wonderful time! Your quilts look so beautiful displayed. :) I'm in love with your newest BOM. :)

FYI - I'm still plugging away at my *secret project* - my goal is to get 6 together before "unveiling". What a task!
