I bought some beautiful vintage trim from Virginia, who was working Jennifer Zanetti's Booth No. 1321.
I was so hoping that Sandra Evertson and Jenny Doh would be at the WWC booth on Thursday night when I finally made it to the Quilt Festival. Jenny had mentioned in one of her blog posts last week, that all the women featured in the newest Stampington & Company's Somerset Sudio Magazine, Where Women Create, would be in Houston for the International Quilt Festival. The creator of the magazine, Jo Packham, and all the wonderful artists featured in the premier issue, would be gathering together to celebrate right here in Houston! That was great news for me, so right after work, I scurried down to the George R. Brown Convention Center and did a little shopping AND meeting. I spent most of my very limited time in the Embellishments section. They had it sectioned off with a giant banner hanging overhead ~ EMBELLISHMENT. GREAT! There were so many, many booths to visit, I had to be very selective. Not much time to take pictures, AND I had to ask before I took; so here are a couple of favorite shots of what I bought on Thursday night.
footnote: I an SO happy I bought Where Women Create, as the articles inside are SO encouraging. Sandra's article~Studio Chic~ was about the small space she creates in (which I can totally relate to)! You will be so surprised with this story, as I was! Jenny Doh's fabulous article told of how her work space evolved from her kitchen table (yes, I have been there and done that too), to a closet, and then with the encourement of her family, to their dining room~which is now her official "home studio". And, another of my blog buddies, Susan Tuttle's cOLd JolTS story was great. This definately is another must read magazine.
