For anyone in the quilt world – a trip to IQF – we just call it “Houston” is something akin to a pilgrimage to the holy land of quilting. Yes. It IS that big of a deal. I’ll show you the main reason why – the quilts of course – in my next post, but for me – it’s all about the people.
The lovely, talented, energizing people! These are the students in my Creative Collage & Collaboration Class. I think this class is definitely my new favorite. (More on that later.)
There are always international student at IQF, but this is the first year I’ve had students from Turkey, Brazil, and Argentina. Canada, England, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and more are always well represented.
One of the new owners (from France) of Artwork from the Art Box CSA found us!
How cool is that!?!?!?!?
Most attendees aren’t lucky enough to meet the cadre of dedicated and hardworking people that make the show happen. Judy Murrah and Kim DeCoste hire teachers and keep things running behind the scenes for the classes. They are truly miracle workers!
