I have been working on coordinating an exhibit of quilts by Prairie Quilt Guild members at CityArts in Wichita. The exhibit was hung last week and was included in Final Friday - an art gallery walk that takes place once a month in Wichita. I was disappointed that only 5 or 6 guild members showed up for the exhibit but it was well attended by the public. The show will hang through June 22 at CityArts, 334 N. Mead Street (across from the Warren Theater in Old Town) and I hope lots of people get to see it and enjoy the quilts. It's really a wonderful gallery space and the quilts looked amazing in that setting.
Guild members Barb Nickelson, Evelyn Gernaat and Lois Stewart brought applique and quilting projects to demonstrate techniques.
Living in an old house has it's drawbacks, including old plumbing. After I found a leak in the basement I had to have a new line put in from the street. Not exactly the way I had planned to spend my award money from MQS.
I want one of these.
I saw this on http://cactus-needle.blogspot.com/ and had to share. It's the Alto Intuitive Sewing Machine designed by UK industrial designer Sarah Dickins. She wanted a machine with more intuitive operation to appeal to beginners. More here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L7ohEWr9g4w
