Today, we did it! As 2nd vice president of my quilt guild, I headed up putting together our own, local quilt show, and it was fun!
In past months I've rallied support and help with posters, entertaining announcements, costumes and role-play. I had these buttons made, and gave them to all who worked on committees and who came to help set up and work the show. I had amazing support and help from really good workers and leaders.
|I also made myself a t-shirt with this phrase on the back, |
and a superman shield with a Q on the front.
A lot of people were amused by the slogan on the pins and on my shirt. One woman replied that she had no superpowers, and another said she has lots of superpowers. I think one of the effects of putting your work on display is seeing that you really do have an ability to do something special. I loved seeing people admire our quilts.
We had a great variety of quilts, colors, techniques, styles... it was a beautiful show.

|Granny's Attic is like a garage sale of |
all kinds of sewing items and fabric
cleaned out from everyone's sewing spaces.
|The quilts for sale were very popular!|
|Lots of shopping!|
|Opportunity baskets ticket sales and bake sale stayed busy!|
