Last Night's Event...Always try to find the positive
I was invited to show my work at a local coffee house during a community event yesterday. The peg board set up they provided worked out really well for my quilts. They promised me that lots of art lovers attended their event. Unfortunately most of the art lovers must have been washing their hair last night.
I brought samples of antique fabrics and a book of my publications to share with all the art lovers. Here is a shot of the first quilt I ever got published. It was in Country Quilts (by QUILT magazine), this title is no longer published. The editor at the time, Jean Ann Wright, gave me my start!
A majority of the crowd at the coffee house was teenagers. Now I have two teenagers of my own, but... I did not like teenagers when I was a teenager and I am not all that fond of them now. Plus teenagers don't buy too many miniature quilts. I sold nothing, but did enjoy the free coffee and pastries.
