Wendy pick up Marlene, Diana and me and took us to the banquet. What a blessing that was, it was dark and rainy out but there was a very good turn out. The food was fantastic, and in between there were many draws. Our guest speaker was Paulette Eccleston, describes as a "tireless Crusader" for the art of quilting, she is a distinguished quilter, teacher, designer, reviewer, author and collector. We were lucky to have her. She showed us her quilt tops, and they were amazing. We all had a great evening. Cindy did a wonderful job coordinating the whole quilt show with the help of some volunteers. Wendy and Marlene sat one table, Diana and I at another. When we sat in Wendy's car to leave, we realized the four of us all won a prize, in fact Marlene won two prizes, she won the door prize.
My prize was a digital camera key chain and a photo album. We all got a gift from the guild and from Luci. She gave us a spool of her favourite thread, Tre Stell Filato from Milano, Italy, a piece of beautiful fabric and 10% discount.
Getting read to eat.
We all enjoyed seeing Paulette Eccleston's quilt tops.
