A Quilting Arts Road Trip

9 Apr 2010

This past Wednesday and Thursday, the Quilting Arts editorial team (Pokey, Helen, and myself) decided to take a little road trip. As of right now, the purpose of our excursion can’t be divulged, so I’ll share some non-work-related tidbits to give you a sense of what we editors do when we’re not knee-deep in articles and art quilts.

Pokey drove and helped pass the time by blasting the Black Eyed Peas:


After a long day of traveling on Wednesday, we happily arrived at our super chic hotel which had its very own gazebo:


Even more exciting was the fact that the hotel’s “deli restaurant” had a pickle bar. And not just any old pickle bar, but The World’s Largest Pickle Bar (I love pickles, so this really was exciting):


 Dinner came wrapped in foil and covered in grease—delicious:


For dessert? The tallest cakes I have ever seen:


The next day, we enjoyed the sunshine in beautiful Brooklyn, NY:

And spotted a cute UPS delivery guy:

It might not look like it, but I promise we actually had a very productive trip. What about all of you—any good road trip memories?

This is all very fantastic, hush-hush and on the QT. That man seems to have a very nice butt! What I really want to know is, what sort of pickles did you eat?

It was hard to keep our mission a secret for so long, but now we can shout it from the rooftops: We were visiting artists like Melanie Testa and Beryl Taylor to shoot video for In Stitches , our new, interactive eMag which is available to you now. And
