Next Stop -- Hershey

Jul 17, 2015

I want to thank everyone that stopped by the Kutztown Festival. Your kind words have made me revisit my decision to not return next year.
Two items were left at my stand this year, one a visor and the second a camera. If you know anyone who attended the festival and lost a visor or camera please let them know they are at my house waiting to go back to their owners. I kept the visor on my quilt in the hopes the owner would return—I can’t tell you the number of people who wanted to buy it even though it was obviously not a handmade item. It is pretty but not handmade.
Next week we will be in Hershey for the Quilt Odyssey. This is a really nice show and of course you can bring the family and send them off to the Park or Rose Gardens. For a real educational experience they can also visit the National Civil War Museum in nearby Harrisburg.

Even though I do not have children or grandchildren of the right age even I have heard of the Minions. Quilting Treasures has a Minion line of fabric that arrived while I was at the festival. Done in bright Orange, yellow and blue it is a really nice group of fabrics.
Also from Quilting Treasures is Mimosa by Studio 8. This is polished cotton in the softest colors and physical feel. It is something I really want to use but I have a feeling it will be gone before I decide what I want to use.

Studio e has a Peppermint Penguin line with the cutest animals with peppermint accents. A panel and two coordinates are available.
Elizabeth studios has a great Sunbonnet Emma pattern, Robert Kaufman has the yearly Holiday Flourish line by Peggy Toole, and a really pretty silver accented woodland animals panel.

I have to stop because I am not sure I can get all these pictures in this email.
If not be sure to check our blog on the www.wilsonscalico.com
If you wish to receive these newletters with the pictures just send me a message and I can add your name to our email list.

All these will be available at Quilt Odyssey so please stop by to check them out and to say hi!
