Quilt Shows and Therapy, The Scrap Kind

I have been remiss about posting the past few weeks. There has been so much going on at True Creations and as some of you know I am the Vendor Coordinator for the Genesee Valley Quilt Club, Garden of Quilts Show.


This show is going to be held at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) Gordon Field House in early June. I do hope that if you are in the area you'll stop by and say hello. Be sure to check out the show's website.www.geneseequiltfest.com


I recently attended a sew night that the Irondequoit Quilt Club was hosting.


They invited Joan Ford, the creator of Scrap Therapy to give a presentation. I was amazed at what wonderful quilts can be created from those left over scraps! The scrap therapy program is two part. The first part is a workshop on the cutting and organizing of your scraps; the second part is a workshop on actually using those scraps and creating a beautiful scrap quilt. I am still cutting scraps! My friend Katie has attended the cutting workshop and a couple of scrap quilt classes and has some really stunning quilts to show for her efforts.

I am waiting to see what kinds of Scrap Therapy quilts my friend Cheryl comes up with. She is the one that invited me to tag along for the cutting workshop that the Ironde
quoit Quilt Club held. The patterns are only available at participating Scrap Therapy quilt shops.





For those o
f you that are in the Rochester area I would like to invite you to celebrate National Quilt Day by coming to a quilt show sponsored by Patricias' Fabric House. Each March and August, Kitty, the owner of Patricias', holds a quilt show of customer's quilts. The show is this Saturday, March 21st at the Pianoworks Mall in East Rochester from 10am to 4pm. The quilts are always spectacular. She also has a sale going on in the quilt shop. 25% Off Quilting Cottons and Notions!

If you go to the quilt show, please stop by my table and let me know what you think about my blog.

Make sure you check out this 30's quilt at the show. Cindy made this quilt in one of my Create A Quilt classes.

Keep piecing those tops,
Kathy

Hi Kathy, Wow you have been busy! That Scrap Therapy sounds like fun. How nice is that the local shop having a show. I would love to come, but Pam and I are heading down to NYC to the Empire Quilters show. Hope all is well!
