Yesterday, quilters from all over the San Francisco Bay Area and Central Valley flocked to the Purple Orchid Inn for the Christmas Preview Party and luncheon hosted by In Between Stitches. The theme for the party was BELIEVE.
The crowd started gathering early and waited in the warmth of the sunshine and companionship.
Each quilter brought a donation for the Toy 4 Tots program.
The following pictures are some but not all of the quilts and projects that were on display. This is a sample of the classes that will be offered during the first quarter of the year at In Between Stitches. There is something for everyone. Enjoy the show!
There was a wonderful luncheon followed by an overview of classes from each of the quilting instructors.
I got so caught up in the moment and visiting with my quilting friends, that I forgot to take pictures of the decorations on my table and all of the other tables! Well, you will just have to take my word for it that the room was very festive, and the tables were beautifully decorated by customers and staff members.
One of my friends commented to my how lucky she feels to live in an area that has such a wonderfully vibrant quilt shop. The owners of the shop, Melissa and Leslie Emery, do a fabulous job keeping the shop stocked with a diversity of fabrics, books, notions and patterns. They know and appreciate each and every customer.
We all had such fun and look forward to another year of meeting new friends, learning a new technique, making and finishing more quilts. I do BELIEVE everyone had a fabulous day.
