I attended the Mancuso Pennsylvania Quilt Show just neighboring the Valley Forge area. The weekend weather was perfect and the drive thru the National Park of Valley Forge was beautiful. I have never been to Valley Forge before and having learned of the Colonial era and General Washington winters there I had always wondered what it looked like. It certainly didn’t look the same as the winter would, the trees had the slightest hint of turning color but mostly green. The monuments were sprinkled here and there and several log cabins gave a clue to the conditions of that era. I hope to return one day and truly visit the sights.
The quilt show was very nice. Lots of quilts, I had two in two exhibits with the Mason Dixon Quilt Professionals Network. Many nationally viewed quilts were also being exhibited. There was a lot of talent being shown in all the quilts. The vendors were present with all the wonderful stuff we can spend our money on. Mind you it is all great and beautiful stuff and well worth what we spent.
My reason for being there was that I along with two friends gave a class. We have a presentation ‘Roadmap to Writing a Book Proposal’. We were pleased to have several serious students who soaked up our information and had great questions. Both we and the students felt the time was well spent.
