GVQC Quilt Show - 2

There were over 40 vendors offering fabric, furniture, quilting notions, and both sewing and long-arm quilting machines.

Guild members donated several items for the Silent Auction.

There were over 750 quilts on display, and the show drew a steady large crowd on Saturday.

This year's show included wonderful options for classes and lectures by local and nationally-known teachers. Here is Janet Root getting ready to teach her class on paper piecing the blocks for "In the Garden", based on the "Midnight in the Garden" quilt used for the 2009 GVQC raffle quilt.

This is Jane Sassaman's class listening to her presentation. The student wearing the blue shirt made her skirt from some of Jane's fabric -- Beautiful!

These are some of Jane's samples.

Jane is assisting her students as they get down to work on their own projects.
