“UffDa Fest”……the quilty side, that is………..

This past afternoon was spent at Spring Grove’s (MN) “Fest Building”, with my trusty Ms Juki (Juki TL2010Q) doing micro-stippling and sharing my love of FMQ…..the time flew by!!!!!!!! (See previous post…) The viewers were few but extremely enthusiastic. IMG_4228 

A peek at the vendors who kept me company and delighted those fabric-addicted loving attendees……

IMG_4229   There’s Kati, from Quilter’s Garden, in Cresco,IA, and…………………………..

the Forest Mills Quilt Shop (Postville,IA). Their Fb page is here.IMG_4232 

For a change of pace, There’s Becky Moldenhauer, of LaCrescent (MN) who does beautiful primitive rug hooking with her dyed woolens, named The Wool Stash.

IMG_4231   She has taught rug hooking at various area events…….

A very relaxing afternoon, for me, demoing, visiting and surrounded by lovely quilts……….all for sale or, as in the case of this first picture, to be raffled off by a local organization!!!!!!! A few photo shots……………….

    Your post had lots of familiar places and names. My husband grew up in Cresco, IA, and he has/had lots of aunts and uncles, and Grand-parents (Schlee) in Postville; also, there was a family of Moldenhauers in Elk River, MN…my home town. Oh, and an Aunt and Uncle Timmerman from Decorah, IA.

      Hello, Jan!!!!! I didn’t realize all your “connections” here!!!! Such a small world, hmmmm?? Since I’m actually from the Twin Cities, I don’t know a whole lot of ppl outside the Houston/Spring Grove vicinities but the Schlee/Moldenhauer names do have a definite presence around here!!! Will be headed your direction right after Christmas!!!!! Hugs and “Hello” to everyone there!!!!!……………

    That’s a great photo of you! Lots of interesting things to see at this show–why do you think there were few people there?! I LOVE the cathedral window quilt. Having made a smaller version, I cannot imagine selling it, even for $15K!

    • treadlemusic says:

      I can’t imagine making, then selling, such a creation either!!!!!! I think that most ppl were still in “work week” mode and today is going to be BUSY!!!!!! So looking forward to it!! Camera at the ready………hugs………….
