Houston: International Quilt Festival Scrapbook Pt. 1

30 Oct 2008

  Festival is proving to be incredible...and incredibly boisterous.

A blog entry sans words; I will add commentary to this post and previous posts as soon as I down a Zeus Juice and get more than four hours of sleep at night! (Check back soon if you can.)

I attended Quilt Festival this year and came across a new company that is producing instructional DVDs, Nine Patch Media. I checked them out on line when I returned home and ordered Pamela Allen's Think Like an Artist DVD and the Embellishment Kit that goes with it. What a great product. Pamela's lesson is wonderful, she is so engaging and her trunk show brings a tear to your eye. The kit comes with a lot of her signature embellishments. This was my best find at Festival!!!!
