Feeling a bit jealous

Posted by Strlady at 11:53 AM
I admit it! I am feeling a bit jealous of all those heading to Vermont this weekend. I was checking facebook yesterday and saw that Joanna is going on a road trip to the Vermont Quilt Festival this weekend and I turned green.

VQF was the first Festival I ever went to and I returned every year. I took many classes there with renowned teachers (Fons & Porter, Alex Anderson, Ami Simms, Jeanna Kimball, etc). I really learned alot in those classes and met interesting quilters when I stayed in the housing facilities.

Earlier this year I had told my sister, Brenda that Harriet Hargrave would be teaching there for the festival and that I would have loved to go. I forgot that it was this weekend, until Joanna posted.

Well for all those that are in the East Coast, don't miss out on an excellent show! And for those that already have the road trip planned...

Enjoy and take lots of pictures!!

I'll miss you... and I'll be praying for cool weather, because it would be just my luck that it's in the fifties and sixties for weeks and weeks and then, as soon as you say VQF it hits 90!~ Hello!!! I think it will be fun. Wish you were here though.=(
