Florida Quilt Network - Newsletter #40

April 13, 2001


Quilting Friends,


If any of you know of someone who has decided to attend the AQS show in Paducah this year, please let them know that I have a room reserved that I will not be using.If someone doesnít take it, Iím out a lot of money, so Iím hoping to find a replacement soon!!


As our busy spring schedule of quilt shows winds down, Iím looking forward to finding the time to work through some of the great inspirations Iíve seen!I hope you find that time too.

††† Just wanted you to know, one of my pieces called "Along the River" was juried into an art show here in New Mexico and is now hanging in the Governor's Gallery at the State Capitol in Santa Fe, New Mexico.The show opened March 16, with a reception at the Governor's Gallery and will end May 11. The show will then go to Hubbard Museum of Western Art in Ruidoso, New Mexico until July 8. If anyone may be in New Mexico during this time they may wish to see the show.†††††††††††††††††††

Sincerely,†† Carol Meyer††

Last year I sent you information on my new Web Site:

http://www.jennyraymond.comI recently updated the Workshop and Lecture information and wanted to make this information available to you. Please scroll down to the bottom of the pages where you will find complete information, including cost, etc. A Gallery page has been added to include additional pictures of my work.

I have very exciting news I'd like to share with you. As many in the Quilting/Wearable Art community are aware, Fairfield is no longer sponsoring the magnificent Fairfield Fashion Show. In the past, I was fortunate to have been a part of this prestigious show for three different years; my ensembles from these shows are on my web site.Bernina and Quilt, Inc. are now sponsors for the Bernina Fashion Show and I was selected to be a part of their first show which will premier at Quilt Market & Festival in Houston next November.My heart still skips a beat when a letter of invitation comes, inviting me to be participant in a show of this stature.Pictures of the ensemble that I have designed for this show will be posted on my Web Site after the first of November.


I would love to work with your Organization or Guild and hope to hear from you in the near future. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.
