Just back from the Festival of Quilts which has been such a positive and lovely event, I think I will be back to earth with a bump today. If you came to visit my stand, then I must say a very big thank you to all of you for making it a truly inspiring experience to have met so many positive, friendly and passsionate people. I hope you will all keep coming back to my blog and stay in touch.
A few of the highlights for me were the other graduates who were exhibiting, as they all start to get blogs and websites, I will be adding links to my blog page so you can see their work too. My neighbour Liz Turton who had amazing knitted and woven fabrics, I hope will become a good friend and we are hoping to do some collaborative work in the future. Other graduates included Tracey Tubb (http://www.traceytubb.wordpress.com/), and Naomi Cotrufo, who had some beautiful embroidery work.
I was also lucky enough to have a visit from Claire Benn and Leslie Morgan from Committed to Cloth (http://www.committedtocloth.com/). They are truly inspiring and you must visit their website. Their books are worth every penny.
Linda and Laura Kemshall also visited the stand, (http://www.lindakemshall.com/), they are passionate about quilts and also have books and journals that are well worth a look. In particular, The Painted Quilt is my favourite.
Anyway - I am gushing, but am still probably over excited after the last 4 days, so check out all my new links on the right to see what else I discovered. Below is a picture of my stand (must do something better with that tablecloth next time!).
