I am just back from the Creative Stitches & Sewing Show in Victoria BC and want to say thank you to all of you who came to our booth and gave some faces to who I am writing! So, for your purchasing, and the fun we have talking and joking and showing you things, and for confirming there are real live people outside of this room , thank you! I am looking forward to seeing you again at the May 4, 5, 6 Victoria Quilt Guild Show.
What is a blog entry without pictures? I wish I had taken pictures of the booth, but I forgot to pack the camera. I will take it to the Creative Sewing & Crafting show in Abbotsford (Tradex Conference Centre) the 23, 24th and bring back pictures then. For now, the best I can do is a few sashiko projects you haven’t seen yet.
This picture was sent to me by Val Wojtula who teaches sashiko in BC, Canada. She designed it and made the hanging, and I expect she teaches it. You can find her contact information in Resources in the top menu bar.
July 27. I am adding this into this earlier post because I want the pictures to be together. We were in Sun Peaks for the Quilting in the Mountains Festival earlier in July and this version of Val’s dogwood and sashiko quilt design was hanging in the show. I love the use of the background yarn dyed fabric! (I took a picture to the quilters info and will put it right after the picture)
This one is a combination of a Sylvia Pippen sashiko and applique pattern (Coreopsis) and a traditional sashiko design (Paving Stones) designed and stitched by Julie Burns. She will be with us at the Tradex Creative Stitches Show March 23,24. Hurray!
To everybody we met in Victoria, thank you again.
