This week is the AQS Show in Des Moines! It starts on Wednesday and goes through til Saturday the 6th. This is your chance to see some amazing quilts (like ones you see in magazines) and do some major shopping. There are hundreds of vendors with everything you could possibly want (sewing-wise!) You can take classes and listen in on talks too. There is sooo much to see and look at it's almost overwhelming!
AND the Des Moines Area Quilt Guilt (DMAQG) also has their huge show there too, which my sister happens to be a member of and has entered a couple of quilts that I quilted! She has entered the Double T and her purple Snail's Trail.
I'm not sure if every quilt that is entered gets to be in the show, but I'm pretty excited about it nonetheless. Because I've seen the high standard of quality this show has and to think that my work will be seen by so many in such a huge venue is exciting! So if you go to the show and see them there you can say- "Hey, I kinda know about her!"
So anyways, if you live close by, you should really make an effort to go to the AQS show in Des Moines. Because a quilt show of this caliber won't be so close for long! Click here for more info.
And in other news, I have recently become an affiliate for the Shabby Apple! They sell quality women's and children's clothing, and jewelry. If buying clothing over the Internet is not your thing, they also have some super cute wall art! How cute is this 'Mermaid Dance Party' print?! Go ahead and check them out, just click on the Shabby Apple button on the right.
OK, now I must quilt so I have some spending money for the show!
