Say “Shah-TOC-kwa!” Quilting Around Chautauqua, Sept. 29-30th!

Are you in the New York area? Boston? Philly? Catskills? Somewhere in the Atlantic ocean, nearish to Chautauqua? If so, you should come see me and my mom speak at the Quilting Around Chautauqua 2012 event!

The friendly folks at the 9th Annual QAC event have packed the whole weekend of September 28th-30th with classes, workshops, guest speakers (more on that in a moment) 65 vendors, and over 800 quilts on display. Not bad, eh?

And about those speakers… Mom and I will be giving our brand-new lecture, “Beyond The Binding: Everyday Quilters, Extraordinary Quilts,” which went over like gangbusters in Lowell last week, by the way. Mom will also give her “Why We Quilt” lecture and I’ll do my “The Future Of Quilting Is Bright” lecture — not all at once, don’t worry. Also speaking: Sue Hausmann and Mattie Rhoades. Also awesome: Chautauqua! It’s gorgeous, from what I can tell from the internet.

So come see! And click here for more info on the weekend. I’d love to see you.

Chautauqua is a favorite summer spot for us here in Western New York. Many quilters from the Buffalo area guilds will be at that weekend retreat. Your right-it’s gorgeous there. You’ll have to try some of our NY state wines-grapes grown right where you’ll be.

[…] I was surprised to find that title phrase at the top of one of the blogs I periodically visit. When I sounded it out, I thought “is that Chautauqua?” and I was right. All of us around here know about the fall Chautauqua quilting weekend. Mary Fons, daughter of quilting rock star Marianne Fons, who is taking up the reins that Liz Porter put down for retirement will be at Chautauqua with her mom this fall. See her post about it here.

If anyone wants to see the beauty of fall, this is the place to be. I went here last year and it was AMAZING, to say the least. The quilts are to die for, wish I had that talent, and the area is just to beautiful for words. Bring your cameras, this place has so many areas to photograph that you will not know where to start. The people are so nice and just want to talk all day about their quilts or any part of the quilt project that they created! Make sure you bring some walking shoes and a jacket the weather tends to get a bit nippy in the morning.
