The Saturday Sampler

Yesterday I attended an event called the Saturday sampler. It was the last thing on my agenda during my week at the Houston Quilt Festival and I was starting to get homesick so I was totally ready to end the week after this.

The Saturday Sampler was an event where 30 instructors were giving demonstrations at the same time. Each instructor was an artist, author, pattern designer, subject matter expert, etc. The demos were around 10 minutes each and the attendees had 2 hours to select the demos they wanted to see. At the end of the 2 hours, I had hoped to see 8 different instructor demos and I ended up attending 10. Here are some photos from the event.

Judy Gauthier - Using odd scraps to make beautiful scrap quilts.

Maria Shell - Improv patchwork - Dynamic quilts made with line and shapes.

Kathryn Pellman - Drawing with your sewing machine.

 Marti Michell - What do I do with precuts.

Susan Edmonson - Endless Embroidery

Katie Fowler - Quilt Mandala
I also saw Jodi Barrows - Square in a Square, Melody Crust - Straight Line Quilting, and RaNae Merrill - Free-Motion Mastery in a Month. I wasn't sure what to expect and this event did not disappoint. I learned so much, got lots of inspiration and look forward to trying new things now that I'm back home.
