Part of the fun at market is meeting authors of some of our favourite books. Here's Sharon posing with Katie Pedersen and Jacqui Gehring of Quilting Modern fame. This two women were so excited that we were lining up to have them sign their book. The came 20 minutes early to chat to us all while we all waited. What a delightful pair they are!
I took a class with Pepper Cory on embroidery with perle cotton. I find Pepper is such an elegant woman, and just love listening to her teach. After the class we had a discussion about her first book "Happy Trails" that I had bought when we were both much younger. Lol.
As great a time as I had, I am happy to be home where I can play with all me new stuff! I picked up a Stella light while I was there, and can hardly wait to try it out. The fabric and thread that jumped into my bag are calling my name. But first, I need to sit, relax and read a few of the books that I just had to have. Have a wonderful evening everyone!
