Umpqua Valley Quilt Show

IMG_2632Thanks to the Umpqua Valley Quilt Guild, I got to spend a fun 3 days in Roseburg, talking (mostly) quilting!  The quilters there are very familiar to me since I’ve taught there a couple times in the past, and are so friendly and supportive.  A special thanks to Helen and Teri for their organization in putting the show together, and to Margo who was much more than a contact for the vendors, and for me, the Featured Quilter.  I’ve included a pic the wonderful sign Teri made for me, I was so surprised to find it in my booth!

The show was well lit, offered some great make-and-take classes and had a nice cafeteria with great food available.  There were LOTS of great quilts, I got to spend a bit of time talking with the Best of Show designer and maker as she explained her inspiration and method for the beautiful landscape quilt she made.

Fun weekend, filled with quilters and quilt talk, who could ask for more?

Lights/Camera/Action!

I am very honored to have been chosen  Featured Quilter for the Umpqua Valley Quilters’ Guild 33rd Annual Quilt Show, called Stars Over Oregon!  It is in conjunction with a huge shop hop, “A Quilter’s Safari“, and runs April 22, 23, and 24.  That’s THIS Friday, Saturday, and YES we will be there on Sunday too.  They will have some great exhibits, cash prizes, door prizes, Make & Take, workshops, and if that’s not enough a great group of vendors!  Come see for yourself at the Douglas County Fairgrounds, exit #123 in Roseburg, Oregon.  You won’t be disappointed!  There will also be an Antique Quilt Exhibit at the Douglas County Museum, something for everyone!
