The Gathering of Quilters Guild

This past Thursday evening was The Gathering of Quilters Guild Meeting. It was a potluck meeting. I wish every meeting was a potluck meeting. There sure were some excellent dishes and lots and lots of deserts. Good food, good company, quilt talk....couldn't ask for much more....other than my girlfriend Rosemary.....I'm sure she could ask for more....like that I get gas before I agree to drive!

Garnett Smalley, owner of Cotton-by-Post (Alisa Craig, Ontario Canada) was the speaker for the evening. He brought several Irish Quilts to show/tease us with before his show. He also shared a bit about his previous shows from Africa and Russia.


This is the information about the show:

October 19-24th are the dates of the show and there are many classes being offered as well.

Photos below are from his show/tease at the guild meeting. Thank you Garnett for your permission to publish these photos!!!





There was a description and story that goes with each piece. I did not take notes or get the details of each of the stories. I'll just tell you that they were interesting and enjoyable to hear. The last one I remember .... this piece represents fish crates....this is what that person sees in their part of Ireland...lots of fishing crates. I thought it was really neat. I think Garnet said it has fishing net on it too.

I hope you have enjoyed this little tour....

Smiles,
Kelly
