Having had an extraordinarily busy May already, I’m frantically trying to meet my newsletter deadlines as well as quilt some models for our upcoming quilt shows in Columbus, Ohio, and in Shipshewana, Indiana, and at the same time, complete plans on my next Handi Quilter Club meeting on Feathers.
Spring Quilt Market is one of the two big vendor shows we attend to try to guess what new fabrics, patterns, and notions you’ll want us to carry in the upcoming months. Don’t worry, we’ve got plenty coming for you!
On Friday night, I had a pass to see the whole new Handi Quilter Facility! I love the huge banner on the building. “Quilting. It’s not a hobby, it’s a lifestyle.”
Handi Quilter is a most wonderful host! After the factory tour, they had a huge party with lots of food and the quilter’s staple, chocolate.
I was in a group with two very sharp HQ reps, one from California and the other from Kentucky, and in our opinions we were the best team!! We made this sampler, using all the features of the Handi Quilter Pro-Stitcher, and had a great time learning.
Imagine getting out of “work” at Handi Quilter and having this view! (That’s not to say that those people don’t work hard, by any means. But HQ must be a wonderful place to work.) And the mountains are breath taking!
You can see What’s New at Erica’s almost every day! Any page of our website has a column on the left that tells you where to find things, and all you have to do is look for “What’s New” in purple, and click to find out.
