Awh you guys, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being just so terrific and supportive about my book announcement. I've had a perma-grin for two days reading all your lovely comments!
And the good news just keeps on coming. You see, blogging is really fun for me. But what I love even more is face time with people who share the same interest and passion as me ... which is why I'm really excited about next week. I've been invited to be a guest speaker at Rumpled Quilt Skins, a charming quilt shop in Okotoks, Alberta.
The shop - happily situated in an historic building - has a monthly social event called the "Upstairs Parlour Show" and I'll be there on Thursday, September 20th from 6:30 - 8:30 with my trunk show and a few more things I've made that I think you might enjoy seeing - like perhaps the original quilts I made that weren't supposed to become a book, but now are ... ;)
But it won't be just me nattering on and on for 2 hours straight. The Upstairs Parlour Show is also an opportunity for you to bring your own work to share and to be inspired by your fellow stitchers. I would love to see what you've been up to!
So if you live in the area (or are independently wealthy with a private jet and nothing else to do), please mark the day on your calender. It's an informal, friendly & fun little get together. Plus I'll likely have a slight case of nerves so I'd appreciate the moral support.
You don't need to register or anything, just show up.
Hope to see you there!
