There are also vendors in Sisters, and one of my regrets last year was not purchasing an antler basket from this booth. Of course I had to remedy the situation, so she's posing with the basket that I bought!
One of my favorite parts of the show is the teacher booth. There are so many beautiful quilts they have to hang some of the largest outside of the tent! This one is "Woody and the Seashell" by Janet Fogg.
Even though most of my current work with textiles includes my sewing machine, I used to do quite a bit of handwork and have started playing with wool and some of Sue Spargo's patterns. This one is on the cover of her book "Contemporary Folk". If I could have fit more classes into the week before the show, I would have liked to have added a class with her.
Barbara Shapel's herons are so beautiful, and I'm sure many of you have seen this quilt before, but I couldn't help posting it.
