Fun at the Houston International Quilt Festival - 2018


I had a blast working with Reen from Embroidery Garden at the Houston International Quilt Festival last week! We were easily found under the AllBrands and Brother "umbrellas"!

This was the 2nd year that Reen invited me to work with her at the fest!


 And this is the 2nd year we had a blast!

I spent a lot of time working on the Brother Dream Machine 2.  I learned a lot and created and stitched out a ton of designs, thanks to Reen! Below are just a few that I designed and stitched!



Reen taught many classes on the Design Center of the new top of the line machine...
The Luminaire Innov-is XP


We were next to Brent Taylor from Durkee Hoops, and Mike John's of Mama's Boy booths again this year! We also were neighbors with Scott from Hot Fix Fabrics They were all fun neighbors!  
Look at the size of that Durkee hoop!

Angela Wolf was also there! It is always great to see her!

  
I got to spend some snippets of time with many, many people...The talented Earlene Stalks and Barbara Douthat Chatelain were just two of many!

I had the pleasure of running into and meeting Vivian Varble of @_stitchesandseams_who I knew of from the weekly sewing show, "That Sewing Blab".  She is a fun, sweet sewist!

Everyone had fun!  Look at all the great smiles!



I got to see Sonja again this year! Sew fun!




Reen taught this young lady how to design and make her own luggage tag by using the Design Center on the Dream Machine 2 in just a few short minutes!  That smile says it all!

I've known Karen Pharr for many years, but we only get to see each other at sewing events! I was thrilled to see her!

Views from above!
The event was on the 1st floor of the convention center.  These photos were taken from the 2nd floor!  I think they give you an idea of the expanse of the space!  You definitely need a good pair of walking shoes!







Reen made Angela a "fish" Christmas Stocking! How adorable!



Wow! Check out Reen's blinged out Event Badge Pouches these ladies made!  Sew Creative!











And what would the Quilt Festival be without antics!
This was my runway walk! HAHAHA!

 More Antics!



Massages!  Ahhh!
 I wish we'd done this on the last day of show!
  We had a blast, but we were tired!

I hope you enjoyed this mini-tour of the 
Houston International Quilt Festival!


Happy Endless Sewing!
