Lancaster, PA is the happening place right now for Quilt Show goer this week. The AQS Quilt Show is this week and I just could not believe how big this show is. It is not just the main floor of the convention center, it is the total of 3 levels. I spent all day at the convention Center on Wednesday in a Backgrounds:Basics & Beyond Long arm Class with Linda Thielfoldt from The Quilted Goose. Linda teaches a nice and energetic class.
In this class she showed us lots of background quilting, from different types meandering - to different ways to use feathers. We spend part of class drawing on paper and the other working on the machine practicing what we just learned. The only thing I don't like about the class, is the machine we were working with, Handi-Quilter was the sponsor for the class, so we were using there machines. I really don't like how they move around, I was fighting with the jerking motion on the machine. I guess I just like my machine too much.
We had a nice long lunch, so I went decide to get ahead start on my walk through of the show. I walked on the main floor and who did I see, Alex Anderson, sitting there talking in her booth to people, that was very cool. As I walked around, I spotted another famous face, Eleanor Burns, in her Quilt in a Day booth. It was just too cool, I love watching both Eleanor Burns and Alex Anderson on TV.
After lunch, we were back at it drawing and quilting, until 4pm. Then it was the long trip home, so I could be back at work today. Tomorrow, my husband and I are on our way back up Lancaster fun. I have another class Saturday morning then the afternoon free to enjoy the show.
