Last night was machine quilter panel night at Gold Bug Quilters. On the panel with me were machine quilters Liz H. and Kari M. We basically shared about our business, showed examples of our work, and answered questions.
The room was certainly full. We have a large guild and despite the rainy weather, they turned out for the night. The guild recently changed meeting location, so this was the inaugural meeting at the new locale.
Kudos to Liz for bringing her batting samples. They were very interesting and well done. Her visuals showed how various batting choices affected the finished quilt. It was nice to finally meet Liz in person, too. She works with a Gammill and Statler Stitcher.
I had brought some visuals too- some quilted sandwich tension examples which showed what is acceptable and unacceptable tension. There was a powerpoint presentation with some slides showing my design approach to quilting, too, along with a video which showed the audience how I quilt.
Kari provided a humorous story about not being prepared to speak. Her story involved going to the dentist, her fear of dentists and taking some anxiety medications. Kari quilts on a HandiQuilter.
Btw, here is the Gold Bug Raffle quilt with my quilting:
