A night with Alex, Victoria and Friends at Quilters Way

Last Tuesday three of my Quilty Gal Pals
Joan, Betty and Giuliana
for a special guest event with…

Alex Veronelli of Aurifil Threads
 and
Victoria Findlay Wolfe of 15 Minutes of Play

What a fabulous night!
Alex was mesmerizing as he explained 
how Aurifil thread was made.



He presented a slide show and explained
each step of the thread making process!
Who knew thread making could be that interesting!


Plus he sent everyone home with thread color cards and 
thread samples ~ 6 spools all different weights
12, 28, 40, 50, wool and 6 strand embroidery!
Wow! Can not wait to play with them!

Speaking of play….
How about 15 Minutes of Play!
Victoria's Quilt made from orphan blocks and much more!
Having followed Victoria Findlay Wolfe's blog for a
number of years I was very excited to hear her speak.
She did not disappoint … 
her stories and humor made the night fly by! 
Loved how she takes scraps, sews them
together and creates such beautiful quilts.


she is a very passionate quilter
who just loves what she does!

she just jumps right in and starts creating!

Just Love that!


It was a fun evening, 
especially sharing it with friends!
Thanks Joan, Betty and Giuliana!
