Back from Knoxville

The trip to Knoxville for the Quilt Expo was wonderful. Had lots of fun, saw many, many vendors with beautiful merchandise. This was the first year for Knoxville to be the host city. Next year should be even better. No large purchases were made but did pick up more embroidery thread and a beautiful Baltimore Album block series which I am going to share with a friend. She also pick up six of the blocks which she will share with me. This Expo is only about a sixth as large as Paducah but still saw many new quilt patterns. Saw lots of tie-dyed wool fabric. Beautiful colors! Long arm quilting companies were everywhere selling their machines. One vendor was a man who had build a longarm in his garage and now is producing to sell at the expos. Next year I will make it a two night trip as one night just was not long enough to take classes etc. But had a great time, great company and a terrific driver.
