Greetings from the Tri-Cities Quilt Guild show from this past weekend!  This was our first show for 2009 and we had been working hard getting ready to exhibit at this show. We were a little nervous about going because of the economy but people were buying! It seemed that people had set aside a certain amount of money that had been saved and were willing to buy NEW items! Hurrah!! Not as many credit cards used (which is fine) but the mood was upbeat and positive! The weather even cooperated by being cool and drizzley to keep people inside instead of working in their yards. It was a FUN show for us as this was our 2nd year so we got to visit with people who knew my work and website. Kudos to the guild members for putting on a GREAT show! I will be posting photos of my favorite quilts in the next couple of days.
