Canmore Quilt Show:
|I introduced my shibori folded, ice dyed fabrics at the Canmore show. Note them hanging on the pegboard.|
Lynne Howard (right), McGown Rug Hooking Teacher and Supplier of Hand-dyed Wools, from Calgary was at the Canmore quilt show along with her twin sister Linda. The hand-dyed wool scarves they were wearing were very popular and several people came to my booth to purchase clay buttons to go with them. The clay buttons were from Blue Moon Pottery (Andrea Revoy, Creston, BC).
|Didn't I tell you those buttons and scarves looked great together.|
Another vendor, Keith Kepke from Creston was at the Canmore Quilt Show selling his meticulously crafted wooden quilting accessories.

The Nelson Quilt Show:
|Kootenay Quilters, Nelson, BC|
Part of my booth in Nelson. I must make some more of the hand-dye painted panels featuring the feather weight singer sewing machine, such as the one in the wall hanging. I always get asked for them.
|Win Dinn's Colouring Book is popular with quilters too. Check here for her new colouring book, 'Colour from the Centre'.|
My, hand dye-painted squares ready for quilting or framing. I needed more red maple trees, fish and bicycles as they were the most popular!
Thank you to all the quilters, quilter's friends, art appreciators, quilt show organizers and fellow vendors for making our time at the Nelson and Canmore quilt shows, this October, so rewarding. It keeps me painting.
