I sure hope everyone who wanted to go did.
The weather was gorgeously autumn. Sunny and crisp, with a slight breeze that ruffled the leaves yet did not blow them off and around. The grounds at Ironstone were pristine, of course! Decorated with brilliant reds, yellows, and browns, as if fall had saved up its Ta-Da finale – just for the Faire.
The Boutique had oodles of fine handmade items and fun stuff. The Country Store was closed this year, and we hope to open it next year, COVID permitting. Our vendors had wonderful things to offer, and we (and I speak for me, actually) spent a bunch on essential things I needed. Yes, I needed that gorgeous “jelly-roll” for a class I was signed up for!
If you did not have the chance to follow the fancy shoes up to view the quilt show, I almost feel sorry for you. Let me show you a smidgen of what you missed. Of course, the photography is lousy, and the quilts look one thousand times more incredible in person. But then, you weren’t there to see them, so I am telling you this.
Maybe we will see you next year…
The 44th Annual Mountain Heirloom Quilt Faire will be held: October 28th, 29th, and 30th, 2022
