For those of you who are my age or older, do you remember when you were a kid and would cut out a coupon or ad in the back of a magazine, put a few dollars in an envelope, mail it off and then wait expectantly for the package to come back?
That's how I feel today.
I have sent all the video footage and photos of the Melbourne quilt show to Bonnie McCaffery (who has produced almost all of our other videos) and she is going to be the Video Fairy and send back our Australian videos.
No pressure Bonnie! *grin* Today as I went through all my quilt photos from the show, I was just so tickled with anticipation.
I had a blast sharing images of American quilts with the Aussie quilters, and soon you'll hear my interviews with some Down Under quilters who will open your eyes to the talent in the Southern Hemisphere.
I must admit the trip back was rather brutal.
Due to United's recent merger I wasn't able to use my miles to upgrade (*grrr!*) so I had 3 flights in coach...29 hours door to door.
So I have been kind of wasted this week...still trying to catch up on emails and phone calls! However the experience was so stellar that I can't possibly complain.
Be sure to check out
my photo page for new images from Australia.
We are very excited about the Modern Quilt Guild and the Modern Quilt movement.
I had many conversations about this during my trip, and I expect that you'll be seeing more MQG guilds popping up very soon in Australia and New Zealand.
eQuilter is proud to be a sponsor of the
QuiltCon show next Feb 2013 in Austin, and I will be giving a color/trend presentation there as well.
We are committed to stocking the fabrics, books and patterns by and for Modern Quilters, so stay tuned to this fast growing phenomenon!
sharing your Passion for Fabric...
