The Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza
September 17-20, 2009

I'm gettin' my quilt on & heading out to the QuiltFest, in Oaks, PA this week. This show has been on hiatus for a few years, but just resurfaced in the new convention center in Oaks. Everyone has told me it's quite a spiffy facility. I signed up for a few classes, a lecture or two, and plan to wear out my feet cruising the exhibition & vendor areas. You can bet that my camera will be all charged up & ready to go as well.

One of the show sponsors is my very favorite sewing machine dealer, Byrne Sewing Connection. They will be participating as dealers for Bernina, Babylock and Brother (are you sensing a pattern here?). They are the best for quality machines as well as for machine repair, so I am thrilled to see them have the opportunity to strut their stuff at the show.

I spent last night packing up my goin' quiltin' stuff, and putting all of the supplies for each class in separate Art Bin organizers. My house may be a mess, but I am very organized when it comes to my quilting. Tonight I will go through my check list to make sure I haven't forgotten anything -- don't laugh, the last time I went to Lancaster, I forgot my Bernina cord and foot pedal (duh). Fortunately, that show was sponsored by a fabulous Bernina Dealer in the area who was very happy to lend me some spares. Aren't quilty people wonderful?

Piece and love, Pat
