Spring Quilt Shows

Its been so hectic around here lately - and exciting!  I have booked booths at two BC Quilt shows in May.  The Victoria Quilters Guild show in Victoria May 4th, 5th and 6th followed by the Langley Quilt Show May 11th and 12th.  I'll be featuring my Fil-Tech Glide quilting and embroidery thread and bobbins, as well as my own hand-dyed fabrics. 

The hectic part?  I want to produce 250 metres of hand dyed fabric before the shows!  So far I have finished 25m of snow dyes, and another 50m of various styles from single to multi coloured batches. 

Today my friend Marilyn is coming over again to help with 30m of 9-step, 2 colour progressions.  I am happy so far with the results, even if it has taken over the basement/kitchen and other areas of our home.  Its been so windy around here lately that I have even had to hang the fabrics to dry inside to keep them from blowing away.

 Oh well, its only for another few weeks!  I will be moving my fabric dyeing operations out to my new Dye House as soon as we can turn on the outside water.
