Usha is vending in New Jersey this weekend!!

LISTEN UP!!! -- All you Handloom Batik junkies in the CT-NY-NJ-PA metro area -- Usha is vending this weekend at the Garden State Quilt Guild show on Sat-Sun, May 21-22.  If you haven't bought enough of her gorgeous cloth, or haven't discovered it yet -- now's your chance!!

The show will be held at the Mennen Arena in Morristown, NJ. and will have 300 quilts, according to what I have heard.   Driving directions here.

I missed Usha in March when she was at the NJ Mancuso show because I was traveling, and I didn't get to Paducah during the AQS show - so I am excited to have found out yesterday that she'll be  a half-hour away from me this weekend. NOT that I need any more of her fabric.  (But as my father used to say, "what does need have to do with it?")

This afternoon I was in the studio and wanted to see what I had sitting around.   I found some; many of them were leftover strips.  Yummy - but where was the rest of it?
The rest of it was at home. After some searching, I remembered that when I reorganized my sewing room neatly (past tense) I had shoved the plastic bag with all the pieces into a drawer. So now I had to take them out and see where I need to fill in.   After a while, I gave up; there was no more room on the table.
It's really embarrassing that I am even thinking about acquiring more.  (don't I look embarrassed?)
So if you see me there on Saturday afternoon (yes, I'll be there) DO NOT LET ME BUY ANYTHING!  After the show, Usha and I are going out for Indian food.  If you want to join us, just show up at the Handloom Batik booth a little before 5:00, when the show closes.

Isn't it wonderful to start a project just because you get seduced by a fabric you never needed...

Every year I go to the Hampton show and tell myself that I will not buy anything else from Handloom Batik and every single year half my purchases are from her booth. Same with my friend. This year we just went there first and got it over with! We love her and her fabrics!

I love her stuff and rarely pass her booth when at the Mancuso shows. See you soon at the NC Quilt Symposium!
