Dear Gentle Readers,
We had the opportunity to drive up to Kirtland, Ohio for the 24th Annual Quilt Fair at Lake Farmpark. The weather finally broke and we had a beautiful sunny day for the drive.None of my pieces were in the show, I wasn't judging, or covering the event for any media. It was just for pleasure. And it was wonderful. We didn't make it to the show last year because of the weather. The snow is double to triple of what southern Ohio gets.
My patient, understanding husband was happy to see three other husbands there. He is usually the lone man at these kinds of things. And, yes, I know what a gem I've got. Not many men enjoy taking their wives to the Quilt Fair and let her walk around and take her time and walk around again without complaint.
The Quilt Show runs through March 25th, if you are in the Kirtland area. The address is Lake Farmpark, 8800 Euclid Chardon Rd., Kirtland, OH 44094. Website is lakemetroparks.com
A special group rate is available for groups of ten or more. School groups are always welcome to schedule a tour of the event and the facilities and grounds.
Next year's Quilt Show is scheduled for February 12 through March 23, 2016. Be forewarned, they are in the northern snow belt and the terrain is hilly and rural. But if you can get there. it is always a spectacular and inspiring event.
