Well, here I am at Quilt Market having a fantastic time. On Friday, I had a schoolhouse lecture to introduce my new book, A Russian Journey in Quilts. Although the room wasn't packed, there was a nice comfortable number of attendees who seemed really interested. A friend of mine kindly recorded my lecture and I watched it later that night. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable I was and how much energy I showed. My schoolhouse was actually only 15 minutes and although I ran out of time, I told those attending that they had to get the book to find out the rest of the story.
Yesterday (Saturday) I had a book signing at the Kansas City Star booth. All of my tickets were gone and more people showed up than there were tickets, but by the end of the signing I had several left over copies because not everyone came to claim their copies. Apparently there were a lot of signing all around the same time. Guess they had a better offer. LOL!
Took some time to visit the antique quilt booths, of course, and marvel over the amazing treasures there.
I also made some great contacts that will hopefully help.
Well, time to hop in the shower and get started on the day. Talk to you later.
