Where Am I Heading Today? Quilt Con!!

 The one good thing about this pandemic is that it has meant that many in-person events have gone digital.  For quilters this is presenting a unique opportunity to "attend" events or visit quilt exhibitions that you might not normally be able to go to if you were not able to travel to their destinations. 

One of these is Quilt Con, the annual quilt festival organized by the international Modern Quilt Guild.

 It is always interesting to see what is popular in this relatively new movement in quilt history.  This year it's particularly sweet since a blogger I follow, Rebecca of Rebecca Grace Quilting (formerly Cheeky Cognoscenti), has a quilt juried into the show.  By virtue of the show being virtual, this is a rare chance for those of us who would not normally be able to attend the show to view the show entries and interviews with the exhibitors, attend lectures, workshops and the awards ceremony and even shop with show vendors.

The show runs through Monday so there is still time to register to attend.  With the winter storm now upon us here in NY, this will be a great way to spend the day in!  I also encourage you to look around for other events and exhibits you have longed to attend and see if they have virtual exhibitions.  Travel from your desktop and expand your quilt horizons without leaving home!
