April events

Heart of the Triad Quilt Show

Martelli rep demoOn Friday and Saturday, April 21/22, members attended the Heart of the Triad Quilt Show in Greensboro. Lisa, Frances, and Barbara staffed our table and sold raffle tickets on Friday and Lisa and Miranda did the same on Saturday. Erma, Pam, and Ann visited the show on Friday and got trapped by the Martelli Enterprises salesman. Terri-Lynne also attended, and she and Barbara hammed it up when Lisa loaned them her phone with a request to take a photo of a quilt for her. Miranda won the door prize drawing on Saturday, and Lisa and Miranda came home with a carload of stuff for guild work.

Burlington Maker Faire

Maker Faire boothOn Saturday, we had a booth at the Burlington Maker Faire. We had boutique items and raffle tickets available for sale. Ann and Sheila brought sewing machines and did some sewing.

LM Wood who teaches art at Elon was one person who stopped by and showed us her fabric wallet that is wearing out. She hoped we had one for sale, so if anyone wants to use the photos of her wallet to take on making one, we have at least one potential buyer.

Susan Owenby of The Bored Zombie was exhibiting nearby displaying two of her amazing pieces – her Harry Potter quilt and Doxstar’s Flight. Susan will be a guest speaker at our August membership meeting.
