A Patchwork of Quilters Visits Barn House

A surprise visit to Barn House had us hustling to prepare for 50 quilters on a tour with Country Heritage Tours along with their head tour director, Vicki Pitts. The group was from Arizona, California, Oregon, Utah, Nevada, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, Oklahoma, New York, Texas and Washington. A phone call at 10:30 a.m. from the La Conner Quilt and Textile Museum asking if we could accommodate 50 quilters in the afternoon had Sabrina, Bobbi and I doing a test run for our first unexpected exhibition at Barn House  in La Conner.  There were many boxes to lift and move up or down the stairs as well as to find items still buried in moving boxes.  Thanks to some of our students who left projects with us, we managed to place many projects and samples in the Design Room and other places for the ladies to see as well as give a short tour of the barn.   The ladies showed  interest and it was a pleasure to give them a potted history of our center and of the types of courses that we offer.  Also to tell them about our wonderful students. The group was going back to the Country Inn in La Conner to spend the night before returning to their homes. It was wonderful to share.  We enjoyed it all.  Thanks to Penny Peters, Sue, Sehr, Linda Williamson, Isabel Parker, Lorraine Ross and Leslie Barnes for leaving design and stitch work with us for others to enjoy.
