We all received lovely gift bags with candy, a small emery board, and a magnetic pin holder. We also received some coupons for Marti products, and upcoming events.
Missy Gouty was our emcee for the evening. She is a most gracious hostess. She always greets everyone by name and makes you feel right at home when you come in the shop!
Marti gave a fun lecture and trunk show! She had so many lovely quilts, and wonderful tales to tell about each one!
A trunk show at Threads is never complete without the quilt boys! Bill Gouty, on the left, is Missy's husband and co-owner of the shop! Rex, on the right, is the husband of one of the employees! They both have a great sense of humor and hammed it up for the crowd!
This is a corner of one of my favorite quilts! I love the use of the "spikey" triangles for the border!
Okay, it was hard to choose my favorite quilt. But this one was right up there! I love black and white quilts, and the splash of lime green, along with the dramtic point at the bottom, really spoke to me!
Yes, of course, I bought stuff! I am currently in the dreaming/drafting stage of my next big quilt. I am wanting to do medalions based on hexagon and 60degree angles. So I was hoping this would help.
It was a great, fun filled evening! It is always to great to spend time with kindred spirits!
