Although as you saw yesterday the quilts were fabulous...the vendor mall wasn't anything to sneeze about. It is the first year and so it wasn't as big as I had dreamed about but it was filled with wool!!! Normally you see one or two booths with wool. But, at this event there were several. And...it seemed half of Central Oregon was in Portland for the show! It was wonderful to run into several fellow quilters from not only Central Oregon but Blog Land.
Jill and Valori were manning the Stitchin' Post Booth!
Most of my Fabric Stalkers are also knitters...except for a couple of us. It has been tempting in the past but I have always been able to resist...then, the Quilt Knit Stitch Show had so much beautiful yarn...and I thought it might help me avoid senility...if I learned to knit :). Then, Cakers got a Blazing Needles tattoo!!! Way cool! With the help of Lori I picked out a pattern and yarn and she got me started on my first scarf! Because, you know I need another hand project, LOL!
here are my bamboo needles and my eggplant colored yarn.
Enjoy the Vendor Mall slide show...it is cake for a quilter!
