Clothing for the Body & Soul

Home from the 29th annual Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival that was held at the Hampton Roads Convention Center!

I had a great time. It was my first time at this show, I hope that it will not be my last. It was great to connect my friends, Facebook friends, renew acquaintances and make new friends. I was given some more houses for my coat and Carola Jones gave me some of her fabrics. Fabulous!  One piece is dyed with indigo and the other is dyed with indigo and walnut hulls. For now, I am petting it, but I am excited to be able to create something that I will enjoy wearing using the fabric.

My classes went well.  The fashion show was fun and I particularly appreciated the cupcakes at the end. The chocolate ones were simply delicious. I tested several of them to make sure they were edible for the guest.  It was so cool to be able to share Karen’s and my garments in a different venue. Having sent her garment all the way from the Netherland for the PIQF 2017 fashion show I thought it would be a special treat to share Marijke Van Welzen lovely coat as well.

The Merchants Mall featured all sort of goodies for quilters, wearable & textile artists and collectors. I did a bit of power shopping the last hour of the show on Sat.  I couldn’t pass up a button booth, stop by Wendy’s booth French Connection to say hello and a piece of African fabric and a pair of earrings hopped into my tote. There were several other booths that were of interest to me. They were HavanaBanana – embellishments, Dusty’s Vintage – buttons, and Stick-It-To-Me-pin c. I think what made these booths special other than the goodies that they offered the vendors was a pleasure to visit with. Of course, there was an array of quilts and garments for inspiration and viewing pleasure.
