Sauder Village, a living history museum in Archbold, OH. I gave lectures and did a few workshops to a great group of women. What a pleasure spending the day with quilters as we learn and share our passion for quilting with one another! Really loved meeting everyone there.
While I had some spare time, I wandered around the quilt show. Gorgeous quilts on display for all to enjoy. I turned the corner and was shocked to see Mrs. Miller's Apprentice on a quilt frame being hand quilted while we watched!!!
There is a whole lot to do at Sauder Village. The quilt shop is on premises inside the village with acres of old buildings and homes with reenactors working with wood, spinning wool, making things as they would have way back when. There is full restaurant, and a bakery that sells yummy cookies, oh, and the pies are to die for! You can stay at the Sauder Heritage Hotel as well. If you get a chance, don't miss visiting. By the way....a little birdie told me Lisa Bongean is next year's national teacher!
Back to market prep. Watch for 3 new pattern releases very soon!!
