Have you noticed the uptick of emails about Quilt Shows? I sure have!! Exciting times to start planning for shows for 2023. As I have mentioned, I’ll be vending and teaching in at several shows in the first half of the year!

My Blackstone Valley Heritage Quilters Guild Getaway is in a couple weeks. I’m in charge, eek! It has been fun planning this Getaway. My tips for this week are about preparations to go on a Getaway or Retreat. At the top of my list is to prep as many projects as possible before I go. Then I can sit and sew, sew, sew! Also, I like to have a variety of projects to work on. When I’m tired of sewing/piecing, I like a hand project to work on for a break. I enjoy walking around the room as seeing what everyone is working on. A cushy for your tushy is so important for those hours at your sewing machine. And chocolate, always chocolate!
#1 – Don’t forget to pack your foot pedal and cord for your sewing machine!
#2 – Take along your favorite sewing chair so you are as comfortable as possible while you sew.
