This week I am writing to you from the Quilt Festival in Houston, celebrating 40 years with their "Ruby Jubilee".
When you enter the quilt exhibit area, you will see the winner of the eQuilter-sponsored "World of Beauty" award, plus the other top prize-winning quilts. Be sure to look for the banner with our eQuilter Rainbow Logo, and the beautiful quilt made by Kyoko Yamauchi from Japan.
You also can't possibly miss the giant Red and White quilt display, (photo above) which is four stories high! It is an amazing display of vintage and contemporary quilts, from three centuries. I've heard people say that walking through this circular space created by the hanging quilts, is like walking through a cathedral.
Today I am going down to NASA to meet with their chapter of Engineers Without Borders, to discuss our next project in Africa. eQuilter is an ongoing sponsor of the NASA chapter of EWB, which means we sponsor a bunch of rocket scientists who use their engineering brainpower to solve problems in developing communities in Africa, and around the world.
Wednesday evening I'll be attending Preview Night, then filming videos with Bonnie McCaffery Thursday morning, and flying home Thursday afternoon. That way I can spend Halloween at home with Sophie!
My Quilting Arts TV clip about the SAQA fundraiser collection with Andover is available now, so click through to get a preview of this fantastic collection by 6 SAQA artists, shipping to stores (and eQuilter!) in December.
