‘Twas the Night Before Quilt Faire,
and all through the place,
not an entry was stirring,
Not even a vase.
The quilts, they were hung,
on the frames, with great care,
in the hope that admirers
soon would be there.
The quilters were nestled all snug in their beds.
But no visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads,
They were so tuckered out,
They slept like the dead.
One heck of a week,
working hard, getting ready.
Things going so wrong,
and chaos aplenty!
It happens each year,
to our planners dismay,
but it always works out,
by opening day.
See for yourself tomorrow (or this weekend),
Vote on your favorites and do us a favor
We love sewing and quilting,
but what’s even better?
Sharing our handiwork,
and telling their stories.
So exciting to see them
displayed in their glory!

After our Quarterly Business Meeting, while we were waiting for our luncheon to be served, we were entertained by Kathie Merrick. She brought in some of her artistic creations to show us, including paintings, clothing, quilts and a Christmas Tree she decorated with ornaments made from thread. Just thread.
Each of her items has a story behind it, of course! And the way she tells that story is so entertaining, she had us giggling like girls. If she gets tired of sewing, she should try stand-up.
To our delight, she brought in the very first quilt she made. A hand pieced and quilted, “Sunbonnet Sue” pattern that Kathie modified by adding applique and embellishments. Photos do not do it justice. We are talking about Stunning here.
You might think, “Overachiever”. Maybe that is what makes her so awesome at sewing. Probably.
All I know is that it is not contagious.

Barbara’s favorite craft is making dolls. Each year, Barbara has at least one new doll to the Annual Heirloom Quilt Faire, making her (or his) début.
At our May 21st meeting, Barbara agreed to bring her favorite dolls to share, not only the beautiful dolls but their stories, with us.
