Party Time!

October 17, 2009
When you hear the word “quilter” you probably think of your grandmother. White hair – sitting at a frame with her glasses on her nose and a needle in her hand. It’s a lovely image. Just go ahead and keep thinking that way because if you all really knew what we “quilters” did when we go off to a conference – it would get even more impossibly crowded than it already is.
Saturday night at the International Quilt Festival the governor of Texas sponsored a Gala on the Green. Amazingly talented live band, food, and lots of us “quilters” dancing the night away.
Here’s Helen Gregory (one of the many indispensable women at Quilting Arts) and I just a-hoofin’ it. I have to tell you – I haven’t danced like that in 20 years. Actually. I don’t think I’ve ever danced like that. When it’s just us ladies there is no pressure – no weirdness – no teenage angst from the last dances I remember attending. Just plain fun and celebrating another wonderful year with needles and cloth!

    What happens at the conference, stays at the conference. Glad you had fun, even Moms need to dance once in awhile.
