IHAN is Vending and Jean Overmeyer is Teaching....This Week :)

 The Kelidoscope of Quilts!!!
 Quilt Show, Classes/Lectures, Special Displays and Merchant Mall
where IHAN will have our first vendors booth.

Hosted by:

The Exhibition Center at Sylvania Tam-O-Shanter
7060 Sylvania Ave.
Sylvania, Ohio  43560
July 19th and 20th
10AM-5PM both days

One of my friends, Jean Overmeyer, will be teaching a class on Saturday.  You won't want to miss me!
I know you recognize her from my previous posts.  She is my extremely talented quilter friend who started as a traditional quilter and has transitioned into a wonderful art quilter.  Jean will be teaching a class I've taken from her and loved:

  Expressions of the Heart
Saturday, July 20th, 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Cost:  $40     Number of participants:  12 to 24
Expressions of the Heart Saturday July 20, 10AM-4PM.

Here are some samples of Jean's "Expressions of the Heart" design.

Jean has personalized this design by writing or stitching a person's name, wedding date, birth date the center of the heart. 
"Jean Overmeyer has designed this project and developed this workshop specifically for the Kaleidoscope of Quilts XVI Quilt Show.  The class is for students who would like to make a simple, but jazzy, art quilt.  Students will learn to use decorative threads and yarns to enhance a design, as well as, couching fusible appliqués on a provided pattern.  Optional beading, free-motion quilting methods, and alternative methods for finishing the art quilt will be taught, to provide students the opportunity to express their own unique preferences on a pattern designed by Jean.  The techniques learned in this class can easily be applied to other patterns/designs."

IHAN will be vending at the Kaliedoscope of Quilts on Friday and Saturday from 10AM-5PM.  so please come by and introduce yourself.  If you would like to pre-order something prior to she show, you can e-mail me at and I'll have your order ready to be picked up. 

We will have tons of quilting, sewing and machine embroidery notions as well as  a huge variety of specialty threads and embellishments to support Jean Overmeyer's class, Expressions of the Heart.   I hope to see you there.

Make sure you stop by and see some of my other friends who will be vending at the show too:



  1. There is no way that I can be there but I wish you both an excellent day and great outcomes!

  2. Like Gene, obviously, I can't make it (nuthin' like a little surgery to put a kink in things, eh? - or maybe take a kink OUTTA things...), but Driver & I both wish you well. LOTS of fun and sales galore! Hope you will finally get to use some of that Mexican thread!!

  3. Wow. Thank you Kelly! We're hoping this is the best show ever. See you later this week. I'm sure your booth will be a hit.

  4. Oh wow... that's an awesome lineup! Y'all have fun and sell lots! Miss you and love you!

  5. Aawwww! I am coming to Toledo July 24th -4 days late. I always loved that quilt show. Sorry I will miss it and seeing you.
