Thursday Shopper #6

Good Morning Dahlings!!

TS is off on a grand adventure today!
Once a year the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show comes to town
and today is the day!
I am not a quilter, although I have made some quilted things.
But, these works of art are not to be missed and are awe inspiring
…..especially the hand quilted entries!
The hours and hours of work are impressive to a seamstress like me.
And then, there are the vendors!
Vintage buttons, trims, embellishments…
Hand spun yarn, wool roving, knitted garments…
Vintage papers, magazines, postcards….
and so much more….

So Ta-Ta until later!
(Don’t forget the giveaway in Wednesday’s post!)

(7 Hours later)

Have I some lovely pictures for you!

You know that I am a seamstress and needlework buff and so was
my companion for the day…the lovely
Mandy from Bittersweet Folkart.
The quilts we chose to focus on were the hand done quilts.
No disparaging the other type
(machine pieced, machine quilted)
even if you do not do needlework, you cannot dispute the
HOURS of handwork in these beauties.
You can see that we are the traditional types and I did not snap many pics of the Gorgeous Art quilts displayed but they were very beautiful too!


I see this is a bit blurry….sorry

This final quilt was Best in Show
Hand pieced, hand appliqued, hand quilted

The work was amazing…I wish you could see it in person.
Of course…the Kiss Kiss award goes to this quilt.

Of course the vendors had 
all sorts of quilting supplies and fabrics
vintage fabrics and quilts, 
vintage buttons and trims
vintage sewing “stuff” of all kinds
and assorted antique and vintage sewing related items.

I bought these (small) items.
( vintage quilts were in the $300 range)

antique spindles, antique spool, 
a handmade adorable strawberry

a blue Ball jar with wooden spools

My intrepid partner in crime is a Brit
so , of course, I snapped this

Ta-Ta til next week then….
