Road to California quilt show

Oh oh oh, I'm really starting to get that excited feeling now that Road to California (the quilt show, of course! in Ontario, California) is only a number of days away.

I'm flying there to attend classes starting next Wed. on becoming a quilt appraiser! Yes, little old me is taking my first steps towards certification. The process will actually take a while, and I'll be really needing to study up...but so excited about this!!

I'm also going to be in a couple of night lectures.

One is by the owner of Pinwheels, on Japanese taupe fabric. Ok, like what could be better than talking about that for an evening. That will rock for sure.

They got this new stripe fabric, I hope they are bringing some to the show for me to get a little bit of it.

Becoming a quilt appraiser is something I have been thinking about as well.
I am so happy for you that your beginning the process, good luck and keep us posted!
I am lucky to be close to the Pinwheels store! Lucky for me they vend at some of my favorite quilt shows.

Enjoy your trip to California. I just saw the owner of Pinwheels yesterday and told her about your Indigo Ping. She has some really awesome new fabric.
