Stitches in Time 2016

Well, two years of anticipation is now only a memory.  Our 2016 show came and went in a bit of a blur!  So for everyone who was there, here's a refresher.  And for those who couldn't make it, we hope you enjoy this sampling of what you missed.

Registration/ Set-up Wednesday, October 12

Members turn in their quilts for the show.

Look at them all, waiting to be hung!

Which one(s) will you choose?

All set up and waiting for shoppers

Kathi and Tracy put the final touches on the record 65 items for the Silent Auction!
There's a wonderful area in memory of dear friends lost.

And the vendors have arrived!!!

Finding nice gifts!

Making our bids

And shopping, of course!

The fabric pool was always a popular spot!

The scraps grew overnight and created smaller pools!
Taking a closer look

Members and guests alike enjoyed the work on display

Show co-chairwomen, Connie Grimsley and Anne O'Geen take a minute to enjoy the show!

 Throughout both days, members provided demos of a wide variety of techniques.
Kathi Everett explaining her amazing crazy quilting

Mary Kozub sharing her award winning micro-quilting technique

 All too soon, it was over and the quilts came back down.....

...leaving an empty room that seemed much larger somehow

See the prize winners here.

You can see pictures of the entire show here.  (hopefully you don't need to sign in to see them this time!)
Apologies in advance for any quilts I may have missed. It was purely unintentional, I assure you!

Thanks to all who helped in any one of the thousands ways it takes to put on the show.  Most of all, thanks to the many visitors who made it all worthwhile!
