Pine Belt Quilters are excited about our 13th Biennial Fiber Art & Quilt Show October 8-9-10, 2010, at Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. We will have 400 quilts in the judged show, a special display of the Hoffman Challenge, lectures, demos, special exhibits, and 21 vendors.
Kathy Kansier, an AQS certified appraiser from Ozark, MO, will be at the show to appraise new and vintage quilts for quilt owners. (Set up an appointment by calling Martha Ginn 601-264-6884; or emailing marthaginn@bellsouth.net) Kathy will also present a lecture at noon on Saturday entitled "Color and Design for Quiltmakers."
Another special feature at the show will be a lecture/trunk show: "Quiltings of Three Mennonite Sisters." The sisters are Julia Graber, Barbara Cline, and Polly Yoder. Barbara is the author of Star Struck Quilts, published by C&T Publishing. The sisters will speak on Friday night and repeat again on Saturday afternoon.
I will present a "Lagniappe" program Saturday evening at 6:00, showing some fiber art pieces that I enjoy making.
