We were so lucky at Quiltwest this year to see some wonderful quilts on display by the younger generation. We also enjoyed seeing the work on display from the Young Sew n Sews group and watching them in action as they put pieces together in the sewing area of the exhibition over the weekend. One of our young winners Heidi Beer, sent us a wonderful letter and a drawing, which I share with you now. Heidi’s “Ispy” quilt, also took away the Judges commendation for Junior quilter.
It looks like quilting will be in safe hands for many , many years to come, when we have lots of the younger generation enthused about what they can achieve with needle, fabric and thread and wonderful imaginations. Thank you Heidi for your thoughtfulness and congrats on your commendation, we hope to see you at Quiltwest next year!
