Today over on Quilts and Creativity, a terrific post--and not just because a picture of me is featured prominently! I had a great evening with Maria Peagler at the IDPA Ben Franklin AwardTM dinner. She says it best in her post, though:
Crafts is a huge category, with winners in previous years covering weddings,Ditto, Maria! It's an honor to be nominated for the award, certainly, but to attend the ceremony and be surrounded by so many powerhouse talents, creative minds, and cutting edge publishers was a thrill. I had a lovely time with Maria and David, and hope our paths cross again soon.
beading, sewing, crafting businesses, and other crafty mediums; for all three to
be quilting books is a tremendous coup for indie quilt book publishers.
David and I sat together with Linda Teufel of Dragon Threads, and we had a
delightful time. It was inspiring to be around so many talented, creative,
and innovative publishers.
PS: We had a mention in Alex Anderson's & Ricky Tim's wonderful, amazingly comprehensive blog @ The Quilt Show.
