Gone QuiltCon’in’!

Getting ready to come to beautiful Savannah, GA for the big, basically sold-out QuiltCon East 2017 has had me busier than a one-armed paper-hanger. Actually, for anyone who knows the quilt business, saying that I was busier than a person getting ready to go teach and lecture at a big quilt show is sufficient. Gah!

I’ll be teaching all day today and tomorrow; my lecture is Saturday morning and I leave a little bit after that, but I’m hoping to Instagram what I can from the show and hopefully post on the ol’ PG tonight, if I’m not too exhausted. Sometimes, I surprise myself!

If you’re here at the show, you must at least try to find me and say hi. The best thing about big quilt conferences is actually meeting people that are usually just tiny pictures attached to comments online.

Whether or not we see each other, and whether or not you’re at the show or just checking out all the social media posts that will start flooding in from all your favorite quilters/bloggers/posters, etc., about an hour — enjoy the show!

    Oh Mary Fons! Such fun you’ll have! Some day I hope to be able to attend some of these great quilting ‘things.’
    Have a great time meeting people who will be larger than their “tiny pictures attached to comments online.” I know you’ll have a blast!! And safe travels back to Chicago.

    Thanks for the words of encouragement. If I see you I’ll say hi. I saw you from a distance in Austin two years ago and did not. My mistake. Enjoy! The quilts are phenomenal!

      No, it’s still the squeaky stuff! No time to shop between trips! 😀
