The April meeting of the Genesee Valley Quilt Club was held last Thursday, and as you can see, we had our usual large attendance. With almost 400 members, most meetings draw well over 200 attendees.
One of the regular features of the meetings is the Sale Tables, where members can offer their things for sale.
This month, Beth Brandkamp brought in several of her books and fat quarters and sold almost all of what she had for sale. Keeping her company is friend Bev Kondolf.
For the other sale table, Priscilla brought in many of the treasures she has collected on her recent trips to India, Nepal, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Sitting to Priscilla's left is her daughter, Barbara, who came to help at the tables.
I wore a jacket to the meeting that I got from Priscilla that she brought back from one of her trips and received many compliments on it. Anne asked for a picture of it so she could make a version of it for herself.
The studio was built by New Energy Works (Timberframers, Housewrights & Joiners) as an addition to the west end of our existing house. The timberframe structure is 23 x 33' and was built using reclaimed douglas fir timbers. The interior cabinetry was made from reclaimed rustic beech, and the countertops
from Australian Jarrah wood. The construction started in April, and we moved into the studio in August 2007.
