Well, I am off to Houston, Texas to perhaps the biggest and best quilt show in the world! I’ll only get to attend the Houston Quilt Festival for a day or two but I will get to spend four days immersed in the quilting world as I attend the inaugural Threads of Success conference being held in conjunction with Houston’s Quilt Market which is not open to the general public.
Along with two full days of lectures I will also go to the Schoolhouse Series which I have heard is exciting, scary and fun all at the same time! Hundreds of lectures, demos, workshops and samples will be delivered all day, rotating every 20 minutes!! For this usually peace-seeking person I am sure I will be blown away by the experience.
To top it all I am also taking a book proposal with me that features eight of my own projects as well as three of the quilt tops. I hope to get some ideas about how I can take the book to publication or perhaps someone might be interested in one of my quilts for a quilt pattern or magazine pattern?
Here’s hoping! Wish me luck!
