I Feel So Blessed :)

Well, I didn't win that beautiful raffle quilt last weekend at the Southern Comforter's Quilt Show, but I still feel so blessed because I had a blast hanging out with my friends vending at my very first quilt show all weekend! Along with a few shots I took on my cell phone, my new friend Chris from Undiscovered Treasures, a neighboring booth, took some photos of my first humble little booth set-up for me ~ Thanks Chris!

Bob and I couldn't have done our first set up (...took waaaay longer than I had anticipated) without my good buddy Starlyn, who also labored all day Saturday with me working out all the kinks in our system :)
Starlyn and I arranged and found spots for everything, while Bob (after rolling everything in) set up the HQ machines.  We took the Avante and the Sweet Sixteen Sit Down machine for people to test drive, and that went over really well ~ even in the single space that I had rented. 

Then on Day Two,  I got to hang all day with Heather who came and worked with me ~ which was a treat because with her work schedule I don't get to see much of her lately!  We also got visits from good friends who stopped by to say Hi from the Quarter Bees, Baltimore Modern Guild, BAS, Faithful Circle, our Sit & Stitch Group and friends I know from when I worked at And Sew It Goes Shop...Did I say I'm feeling so blessed!

Now we're gearing up for our next Event coming up on April 5 - 6th at the Carroll Baldwin Memorial Hall in Savage MD where we are hosting Debby Brown to teach some machine quilting classes.  Click Here for more information on the classes and to register.  Then the following weekend, April 11 - 13th we'll be vending again over at the Milltown Quilter's Quilt Show ~ Mark your Calendars ~ more details to follow :) 

Enjoy the day!
~ Dawn

OMG, I was right there Sunday evening and walked right pass. I was there looking at the quilts and was not planning to buy anything, but I never looked up to see the vendors names. I met you on the bus trip to PA last year. My friend Nadine Millis also had a both, The Fabric Peddler. Hope to see you this year on the bus. (felicia)

Hey there great website! Does running a blog such as
this require a great deal of work? I have no knowledge
of computer programming but I was hoping to start my
own blog soon. Anyways, if you have any recommendations
or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off subject but I just had to ask.
Thank you!

It's in fact very complicated in this busy life to listen news on TV, thus I simply use world wide web for that reason, and take the hottest news.
