I want to remember everything which happened so am trying to find a way to write it down so I remember it. I did find I put Paducah into two categories the official APQS events and the unofficial events. Both of which I loved but we're very different.
First up is quilt bingo!!!
Quilt bingo I hear you ask? Well the lovely Mickey Depre held this event at the paper pieces shop, irene and I had no idea what to expect. We all got a bingo sheet which instead of numbers had words or phrases on it. Things like - lone star, hugs and kisses, block names or quilt names. Mickey then talk us through a huge selection of quilts from her life and at the end of each quilt we got a word or phrase to mark off on our bingo sheet.
After the last quilt one lucky person shouted bingo! She won a copy of Mickeys latest book. We all got a prize though as we were told to feel under our chairs and we all got a $5 gift voucher for the paper pieces shop. Needless to say we all went and spent waaaaay more than 5 dollars! Great marketing!
Next up was a talk at the McCracken public library
ITS A LIBRARY WITH QUILTS!!! *faints*
Dr Nancy and her friend exhorted us to document our quilts, even if it is just for ourselves meantime, whatever you craft is important she said, tell your story for it deserves to be heard.
So I will keep on doing that, even if it is just for me, this is my story.
