Karen has added Aurifil thread to her list of quilty things for sale on her blog. Since I love using Aurifil thread in my Pfaff QE 4.0, I hightailed it to the Zonta Bazaar last Saturday where Karen was set up to sell her selection of threads. I love the 50# and use it all the time but I also wanted to try some 28# and 12#.
I will let you know how that works for me.
Of course, any quilter worth her weight in fabric, has to visit Mrs. Pugley's Emporium on Victoria St. Here's what I bought.......

Another amazing highlight of my time in Amherst was spending quality time with quilty friends.
My beautiful friend, Karen R. of KaHolly arrived from Cape Breton to enjoy her first Fibre Fest and spend time with me and my daughter, Nicola. We stayed at the same motel and spent time hanging out together and tending our quilt display.
I will leave you with some shots of my quilty peeps and me. There are a few faces missing but rest assured we all had a great time and will be back next year, bigger and better.

I even had a chance to show two sweet little girls how to sew a seam. Future quilters?
Hope you are lucky enough to be involved with a quilty group of wonderful, inspiring women. I sure am!
