Katmandu Trunk Show

Today at lunch I took off and enjoyed our beautiful 38 degree weather (wow a heat wave). I went to the Thimble Cottage Quilt shop. The owner is Pearl Louise and right now she has Mark Lipinski's Katmandu trunk show at her shop, so I just had to go take a peak. It was really awesome and so much variety. I moved through 4 different rooms to see all the pieces and studied the quilting and embellishments. I really encourage anyone who gets the chance to go view this trunk show. I also couldn't help but pick up the next book by Jennifer Chiaverini in the Elm Creek Quilts series. Borders didn't have it, but Pearl Louise did! I found four different Katmandu fabrics in purple, so I just had to pick them up. It was a nice lunch break and I really enjoyed seeing the trunk show. Now I have to convince my mom to take a look before it's gone.

I feel so out of the circle. I have never read any of those books! I think I will have to start soon. I feel like I'm missing out.

Sounds like you had a great lunch break. I really wish we had some type of quilt store here.

Oh, you are soooo lucky to get to see the trunk show! He will be in Michigan in August and I so want to go!
I just picked up the fifth book. I'm so far behind in the series. Starting upload books to my ipod touch, maybe that will help!

I'm so glad you got to go! Did you sub. to the magazine? I did right away and haven't gotten one yet. I bought the last issue and I'll probably need to buy the one you are in to. Maybe I should just email mark to find out what is going on.
