Georgia Bonesteel is probably best known for her PBS series, Lap Quilting with Georgia Bonesteel. In my book, this quilty icon is up there with Eleanor Burns, Marianne Fons & Liz Porter. I really wasn’t planning to go to Greenville again this year, but the opportunity to see Mrs. Bonesteel in person was a real draw. Hubs encouraged me to take advantage of the opportunity to see her now, rather than wait until later. I might not get another chance. Very true.
Sew glad I went. Yes, traffic was a beast both ways, but the opportunity to hear Georgia Bonesteel speak about her process and see her trunk show was well worth it. Unexpected bonus: a very nice conversation with one of the instructors (Sara Bond) over lunch. I sat at a random table to eat and struck up a conversation with her. She said I really needed to plan on getting out to Sisters quilt show in Oregon at least once. It’s on the list, along with Road to California and the Sewing & Stitchery Expo in Puyallup, WA…and Paducah….and Houston. 🙂
