I've been going to Houston since 1996 and absolutely love my time there. Market is exciting--let's see what's new and upcoming--and Festival is vibrant with over 60,000 visitors from all over the world. My schedule keeps me on the 3rd floor most of the time, in the Education office, but every chance I get, I head downstairs to see the quilts and visit the vendors. My job is to handle faculty check-in and manage all the freight they ship in--lots of fun getting to know more than 120 teachers, again from all over the world.
In January I will be giving a Power Point lecture to my guild: An Inside Look at International Quilt Market and Festival. So this year I had to remember to take my camera every time I left the office. While I could talk for hours about "Houston" as quilters know it, a Power Point lecture needs images. Here are a few:
|One of the TWO Founders Awards--by Janet Stone|
|A photo exhibit I call "If Quilters Ruled the World" quilts on the SF Bay Bridge and US Capitol|
|Honu Harmony by my long-time friend, Eileen Williams--spectacular!|
