My birthday gift is my family joining me in this event and taking photos so I can enjoy these quilts for years to come. Gifting me with a bit of cash to spend there, is always a treat as well, for I will not see such variety of sewing wares for another whole year! More and more vendors now sell on line as well and so, when my money runs out, which it always does, I have a collection of business cards directing me to on-line shopping opportunities for the rest of the year!
Instead of downsizing my collection of sewing stuffs, I am still avidly dreaming, scheming and collecting. My ideas bounce off of what I see and I pray that I will live as long as Grandma Moses and be so prolific in my stitching as she was in her painting.

They say it is the oldest and biggest Quilt Show in New England and their collection of antique quilts is wonderful as well. I am not paid to advertise for them, but I am merely passing onto my readers that if you haven’t ever attended this quilt show, it is worth making a trip to Vermont to see!
(I will feature some of my favorite quilts in my future blogs. They were all so beautiful and deserve taking them one at a time to fully appreciate their detail!)
