Ok, so something astoundingly stupendous happened today. You see, back in the first week of December, 2016, I submitted a quilt to AQS Paducah. This was the first quilt that ever came off of my longarm, after I had done three practice pieces and a lot of doodling to try to get comfortable with the longarm. Well, out to my mailbox I went each afternoon over these past two weeks, knowing one thing that was shared to me by quilters who had made AQS shows… if you got a small envelope in the mail, it meant that you didn’t make the show. If you got a large envelope, it meant you did. Each day, I opened my mailbox to see a lot of little letters, but no big ones. So, each day, I would hesitatingly dig through that pile of mail, sure that the letter of rejection was just one envelope away. I would take a heavy sigh each day and say, “you’re not out of it yet”.
Well, today, an email popped into my box and I sat there and stared at it, doubting what my eye was reading. Was this a mirage? Was it a mistake? For what I saw was, “CONGRATULATIONS, you have been juried into AQS Paducah!”. Yes!… see….
I am completely in shock and unbelievable happy to say that I am now truly a longarmer who can quilt show quilts! And, I’m incredibly excited to see the show. God is good!
I have built my youtube channel and have uploaded my first videos. If you are interested in subscribing to my channel and/or watching my educational videos on the longarming process, please seach for “the threadworks factory” on youtube.
Thank you for visiting my page and I hope you have a wonderful day. Get out there and create something!
