I’m so excited! I’m headed to my very first Quilt Market today! I’m going with Sheila Sinclair Snyder and I think we are going to have tons of fun. Can you say ROAD TRIP! I hear there will be too much to see, and I suspect it will be overwhelming…in a good way!
I’m hoping to see my buddies at Generation Q Magazine in person! That will be fun. And who knows what else awaits there? Fabrics and quilts and tools….oh NO! Below is just a sample of what the Generation Q folks are giving away!
It will be a whirlwind day, and the very next day I leave on a Quilt Retreat, so I won’t be able to post about it until I return. So you’ll just have to wait to hear all about it! (But gosh, I’m sure you have plenty of things to do between now and then, right?)

My quilt group, the Lowell Pine Needlers, are taking our raffle quilt on the road! It’s the first time we’ve tried something like this, so we are hoping for big ticket sales and lots of fun! We are going to display our raffle quilt, entitled “Confetti,” at the Oregon Garden’s Stitches in Bloom Show on January 25-26. So come on down and see us…oh, and see the show too! This will be my first time at the show, so I’m excited to see all the quilts and vendors.
The Oregon Garden’s 6th annual Stitches in Bloom Quilt Show runs Jan. 25 – 26, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
This is our 2013 Blackberry Jam Raffle Quilt! Isn’t it great? Colorful and fun. We named it “Confetti.” And pictured here are all the happy Pine Needlers who took part in sewing it all together and are as colorful as the quilt! And why are they looking so happy? Well, because the quilt is DONE and we are ready to sell tickets!
We are taking the quilt on our very first road trip later this month to the Oregon Garden Quilt Show up in Silverton, where many beautiful handmade quilts will be displayed.
Raffle quilt tickets can be purchased from me at any time, so just shoot me an email at lisa [at] towerhousepeople.com and I can hook you up. $1.00 each or 6/$5.00. Either way it’s a fabulous deal. And where does the money we raise go you ask? Well, the proceeds from our 2012 raffle quilt when to the Lowell Library, the Lowell Food Bank, the Lowell Firehall, the Blackberry Jam Festival, and the Clothes Closet at the Elementary School in Lowell. So yes, it all goes back into our little town (population 1055).
