Momcat Monday-Our First Trunk Show.
Momcat Monday is where Mom tells us about her adventures in sewing, quilting and crafting in her own voice. Take it away, Mom!
In March I presented my first Trunk Show at Country Traditions in Fremont, Nebraska. It was held at a retreat - You Know You're a Quilter When...Retreat.
This was a bit of a challenge for me since most of our samples for our book were still in Paducah with our editor! The staff's suggestion of a power point presentation saved me and worked well since I had photographed every sample sent to the American Quilter's Society.
The presentation was given with a combination power point presentation using different samples representing chapters in our book, samples constructed and still at my house in Omaha, and an explanation of what our experience was in writing a book.
This retreat was also tons of fun - I made new friends and enjoyed the camaraderie of many quilters. There was plenty of room for sewing, cutting, and ironing as well as a "classroom" area for showing new products and techniques. I can't wait for the fall retreat!
