Busy Bees



Hi Everyone,
It is that time of year when we get in gear for Quilt Shows, we are busy bees making kits and planning for our booths...Mark your calendar for Quilting in the Garden at Alden Lane Nursery Saturday September 26-27,2009 starting at 9am. This year the featured artist is Laura Wasilowski. We are very excited to have her join us.

This show is a can't miss show if you are in the Bay Area, over 100 quilts will be hung from the Oak trees that fill the nursery. Several vendors will be on hand selling fudge, food, gift items and of course quilt fabrics, books, and patterns. Alex Anderson will be there, as well as Joanna Figueroa of Fig Tree Quilts

Bring the husbands along with you on Sunday and they can enjoy the 20th Nostalgia Day Car Show presented by the Altamont Cruisers that will be held downtown in Livermore. Over 700 cars will be parked along First, Second, and Third Street. This is a free show from 9am-4pm.

Part of the getting ready phase is of course making quilts, and everyone has been busy working on new samples to wow you with. Here is the latest one as I was machine quilting it, this fun quilt was designed by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt and Gift Co.
In Stitches,
Melissa
