This past week, quilters from 38 different states converged on Lehi, Utah for the annual Garden of Quilts sponsored by Riley Blake Designs. It was everything I could have imagined. I even ran into a couple of folks who were also from Atlanta. We all remarked how refreshing it was to be in Salt Lake City.
This was my retirement trip, but hubby tagged along to go hiking. He served as my Uber driver to different events on the two campuses at Thanksgiving Point. I knew he had a good time when he said he’d like to tag along again if I decide to come back. Yes, I’ll definitely be back and am already planning to return next year.
Things to remember for next year:
(1) pack a power strip
(2) rent a machine instead of flying with one (you get to sew on brand new Bernina, Brother and Baby Lock machines)
(3) premium kit fee is totally worth it to see Lori Holt or any other sewlebrity on your list
(4) choose a different evening event (skip the meet the maker event)
I’ll post more pictures and discuss classes in detail in a few days.
