Cindy Williams is the president of the guild. She wore her Quilt Diva long jacket that she made and of course I loved it! One of the things that I also love is going out to dinner with quilters before or after my guild talk. They took me to a wonderful place. I love getting to hear about their guilds and what they have been up to.
The next day I was the speaker for the Gwinnett Quilt Guild in Snellville, Ga. They dressed up in polka dots and glasses in honor of my visit. Below is Ginny Manning the president of the Gwinnett guild.
Below is a photo of Becky, Susan, me and Debbie. These women are the program chairs past and present for the Gwinnett Guild. I think this job is the hardest job in a quilt guild but the most
rewarding. These three women ran me all over the place. I would head out on a long road trip with them tomorrow! After meeting them I felt like they were my long lost friends immediately.
After the Gwinnett Guild I went to see the Scarlet Thread Quilt Shop http://www.ascarletthread.com
in McDonough, Ga. They are just 25 miles south of Atlanta. They were featured as a top 10 shop in the 2012 Spring/Summer Quilt Sampler magazine. Over 10,000 square feet!!! I wanted to meet one of my biggest cheerleaders...Sherrie. She has made so many of my quilts. Because of her .... there is a Amy Bradley corner in the shop. Sherrie and her husband Dick drove me the hour long trip back to my hotel. I was thrilled to have even more time to visit. Yea!
This shop is amazing! I love polka dots and they have the biggest selection ever! Heck, they have a huge selection of everything!
Elise who checked me out at the register made this cute pin. It is her own design. It is made up of a measuring tape and a button.
I fell in love with this sample that was made up in their store. The pattern cover is below.
I also loved this sample that was maded up in their store. The pattern cover is below the photo.
The next day I taught a six hour workshop with the lovely ladies below. I love to teach workshops because I actually get to be around the people that buy my patterns.
In honor of Susan and her two Bountiful Beauties quilts I am giving away a Bountiful Beauties pattern. Just leave a comment on the last workshop that you participated in. We will draw a winner this Monday.
