I am so excited to tell you about this year’s show in Statesville. The first thing that you are going to see as you enter the hallway are the fabulous raffle quilts from several of the area’s quilting guilds. The next thing you will see is the booth from Jody’s Garden Bakery. Can you say sugar, cinnamon, butter, coffee and cream? What a way to start the day! Around the corner from the bakery is Risto’s Place Restaurant. They are going to be serving Roasted Turkey on Pecan Cranberry bread with lettuce with Pasta Salad or Meatball Sliders (2) with home made chips. Vegetable Minestrone Soup and Pasta Salad will also be available. Goodness, I got so carried away with the food that we haven’t even talked about all the quilt and yarn stuff. We have some of your favorite vendors returning and some new vendors that I know you will love.
Do you love wool appliqué and stitchery? Annie’s Keepsakes from Rockwell, NC, Auntie Ju’s Quilt Shoppe from Wilmington, NC, Freda Berry’s Woolens from Morganton, NC, and Shakerwood Woolens from Rock Hill, SC will have lots of luscious colors of wools and threads to go with them.
