HOUSTON INTERNATIONAL QUILT FESTIVAL

IT'S HERE!

Our yearly Houston International Quilt Festival is in full swing.

It's A Stitch spent a day and a half setting up our Bernina Of America accessories booth and boy are we tired.

Last night was Pre-view night and today was our first full day and only 3 more to go!
I worked at the store today shipping orders from our web site...next week will prove to be a humdinger with all the orders to fill and ship from Festival and from the web store (www.itsastitchonline.com).

Tomorrow I'm at the store to help customers with fabric choices and then cutting it, finding just the right color thread, oohing and ahhing over their recent purchases at the festival....etc...etc...etc.

On Saturday I get to go down to the festival and SHOP! My dear hubby, Rick, our daughter, Ashley, and I will shop 'til they drop!! Actually, Rick loves to go. He buys me more than I'll buy for myself so....needless to say I really enjoy his company. He is an artist so he loves to look at all the quilts. Of course his medium is wood...but he does love the fabric.

I will photograph my purchases and share them with you all next week.

Speaking of next week....
As of Sunday, November 2...I will be the proud owner of a Bernina 200 sewing and embroidery machine! My friend Wilma is buying the new Bernina 830 and boy is she excited. I don't know which of us is more excited. This is not her first Bernina but it is for me.

I can hardly wait to sew on it. I have a custom order request from my Etsy store and that will be my first project! My customer is getting married in April and wants something special for her brides maids. I am the lucky person who gets to fill that order. YEAH!

Well, it is almost time for CSI Los Vegas...can't miss that.

In and Because of HIM,

Susan
