Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great show! I am in awe of all the hard work and dedication that everyone put out for that show. It was absolutely AMAZING!! I heard nothing but good things from people that attended the show and even overheard one woman say she was impressed and couldn’t believe we were a local guild. I met members that I hadn’t met before and watching the army of members and their friends and family that got this show up and running was unbelievable! So thank you Gretchen and Selina for chairing this show, to all the committee chairs that headed up each section of the show, to all our volunteers and to all the talented people that submitted quilts. Team work makes the dream work!
Now we can all get back to quilting! I know I need to work on some pillowcases and I think I have one or two charity quilts to get started on.
Keep calm and quilt on,
From July 22 to July 24th, our guild put on an incredible show after a long hiatus. Our new venue at Neumann University gave us much more room and was transformed into the perfect quilt show space. We had 19 incredible vendors, over 300 quilts on display, seven workshops and lectures, and so much more.
For everyone who made it happen, thank you! It takes immense teamwork to make such a huge event happen and our guild came through big time.
Our guild hopes everyone left feeling a little more inspired-- we will certainly need it for the next one!
I recently attended a retreat in the Finger Lake’s region fully expecting to see amazing fall color – it was pretty, but I must say the color around home this weekend has been amazing. Sometimes we find what we’re looking for right in our own back yards! Or maybe in our own quilt guild.. · We all follow lots of quilters on social media for inspiration, but have you seen what our own guild members are making? We have some amazing talent in BVQ!
Hi I'm Deb, BVQ webmaster and official blog runner! I am a retired Medical Technologist, having worked the night shift at Chester County Hospital for 30 years. I think I have sewed forever – my mom sewed, my grandmother sewed, and in 1984 I decided to make a "blanket" for my about-to-be baby....it was 3 layers sewn together with a binding! Little did I know it was a quilt! I am basically self-taught, but continue to learn as I hang out with BVQ. My basement work area is seriously quilt cluttered and my better half asks no questions! I have too many UFO’s and want-to-do’s than I can count, but I guess that makes me a true quilter!
