Local Book Signing!

I'm super excited to participate in my first public book signing (I've visited several local guilds, but this is my first time in a shop!).  This Sunday, August 16th, I'll be in the sweet village of Ladner, B.C. parked at The Quilted Bear quilt shop. I've brought along a trunk show of book projects so you can see first hand, the beautiful designs of all of the talented contributors to Make It, Take It.  Everyone who purchases a book will also receive one of my "Retreats Rule!" buttons.

There's something for everyone on Sunday. It is the annual Classic Car Show and Quilt Walk. On from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., the main drag is closed and transformed into a parking lot of gleaming vintage cars, trucks and motorcycles.

This stunning quilt was made by my friend Matthew Wheeler, Vancouver Modern Quilt Guild member and former owner of the Quilted Bear.

 The shop windows, railings and yoga studio space are all decorated with quilts from local quilters.  Every summer I say I'll make it out to Ladner for this show but I've never been in town. I'm excited to finally participate; as well as the book signing, I've got two quilts hanging in the show (Selvage Colourblock and Light Of May). I haven't been to an outdoor quilt show since Sisters about 6 years ago.

Hope to see you there!

Brilliant idea to showcase cars and quilts together! And congrats on your public book signing. I am sure it will be fun. Hope you sell lots of books. I am doing a book tour also - just getting started. I've talked to 3 guilds so far and lots more on the calendar. What a fun way to get out and meet quilters! Good luck.
