Geelong Quilt In (Very photo heavy again)

Yesterday I met up with lovely sewing friends and many, many other sewers at the Geelong Patchwork and Quilters Quilt In. I think there were 305 people there...was a big event!! The first speaker fo rth eday was Cathryn Barbagallo talking about modern quilts, the second was Kathy Doughty from Material Obsession...she was a very interesting person to listen to
Kathy explaining her quilts...

one of Kathy's quilts.....my camera is playing up so the photo isn't too good..
busy stitchers....

check out the concentration over there...

this young lady is so hard to get a photo of...she is sneaky....but lovely.....I have lots of back of heads photos!!! Lol!!

More concentration....

Shez went from this....

I had a wonderful day, friends from all over gathered for stitching, shopping, swapping, laughter, listening, and a wonderful catch up. Thank you ladies.
Happy sewing.
