A Three Guild Week

What a week visiting three different guilds. The first, Mooresville Centerpiece Quilters Guild, north of Charlotte, NC gave me a chance to enjoy the meeting and then proceed to lecture and teach in the afternoon. They are preparing for their big quilt show July 27-28 at the Rocky River Elementary School. For further info contact: <barbkh04@yahoo.com> The group proudly displayed an amazing group of Linus quilts in their show and tell. Then, to my surprise, Suzanne Hollihan, displayed a wall hanging that her Mother made from one of my books. Shades of my past haunt me everywhere!

The neatest idea I have seen in a long time was this new contraption used for "Show and Tell". It is nothing but two poles with clamps attached at each end. Sure makes it easier to show those big quilts. The inventor, Jean Cagle, used to work with my husband years ago. Pretty clever, Jean.  I was proud to show one of my latest Log Cabin quilts with the updated device. Great day with the guild.

Wonderful quilts and I like the idea of having the quilt on poles, would be a nice idea for photographing our quilts.

LOVE the "contraption" for show and tell! Is there a way I can contact the "inventor" so we can have one at our guild meetings? Our show and tell is usually 45 minutes long - LOTS of quilts - and it's so hard to hold them high enough for all to see! I would truly appreciate anything you can tell me!
