Quilt!Knit!Stitch! Call for Entries Announced!

It’s certainly freezing outside for much of the country, Houston included, which means there is no better reason to stay home and quilt…or knit/crochet!

We have a couple of exhibit opportunities we recently announced for our premier edition of Quilt!Knit!Stitch! in Portland, OR, August 14-16, 2014 that I wanted to point out in my blog (click the links below for all the details):

1. Coming Up Roses!

“Roses have deep and various meanings in our culture. Some would say they represent innocence, beauty, and/or love. Some would say they are symbolic of the Virgin Mary or that they are the national flower of England. Some roses are red, some roses are yellow, some have thorns, and some have none. The different types of roses, when gifted, hold different meanings to the recipient. The smell of a rose can spark different feelings and memories in a person. What do you think of when you think of roses? How do they make you feel? What does a rose symbolize to you?”

2. Grandmother’s Purls 

“Grandmother’s Purls will be the showcase for contemporary international knit and crochet pieces that feature a modern spin on vintage patterns or techniques. This year’s exhibit will interpret the “feather and fan” pattern.”

I hope you will consider entering and will help me spread the word!

Also, congratulations to Christina Keys for winning the skeins of threads from last week’s post. Please email me at pokeybATquilts.com and I’ll post these in the mail to you ASAP!

  1. Thanks Pokey

    The email listed (pokeybatquilts.com) does not work. So I replied to your blog.

    I really love reading your blog and got an extra special treat when I saw that I had won the beautiful fibers from the giveaway last week.

    What a great way to begin the weekend. Tomorrow seven of my quilting friends and I are headed to Venice & Ft. Myers on our annual road trip to visit some quilt shops. We have a great time every year and always come home with lots of show & tells.

    Hope to make it to Houston this Fall & I will make certain to say hi.
