Here in Cheyenne, “Quilt Care” is available at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens’ Tilted Tulip gift shop for the duration of the “Garden of Quilts” exhibit, now through Jan. 27, 2019.
I’m happy to announce that “Quilt Care, Construction and Use Advice” has now been professionally redesigned by Chris Hoffmeister, Western Sky Design, the designer for “Cheyenne Birds by the Month.” It is so much better than my attempts to use Word.
PBR Printing of Cheyenne, also the printer for “Cheyenne Birds by the Month,” printed it on slick paper and it looks great, even though the photos are in black and white in an effort to make this affordable enough to include with gift quilts.
In January, I’ll take “Quilt Care” off Amazon, except for the eBook, and Chris and I will upload the new, improved version to IngramSpark where it will migrate to Amazon and other outlets. IngramSpark is a distributor for books, including print-on-demand, trusted by bookstores and libraries.
The exhibit has 10 of my flower and flower-bright small quilts, part of my job being the Gardens’ Artist in Residence for December and January. They are upstairs at the Grand Conservatory Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, noon – 5 p.m.
Holiday closures: Dec. 24 at noon through Dec. 26, (open again Dec. 27), and Dec. 31 – Jan. 1 (open again Jan. 2).
The “Garden of Quilts” exhibit is part of my job as the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Artist in Residence for December and January. Kristin Custis and I selected 10 of my flower and flower-bright quilts to display.
A reception for the new Cheyenne Botanic Gardens Artist in Residence (me!) exhibit, “Garden of Quilts,” featuring 10 of my flower and flower-bright quilts, will be from 3 – 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 9 at the Cheyenne Botanic Gardens, 710 S. Lions Park Drive, Cheyenne, Wyoming. My husband Mark is baking cookies for it.
The exhibit will be up through Jan. 27, 2019. The Gardens are open Tuesday – Saturday, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and Sunday, noon – 5 p.m.
My book, “Quilt Care, Construction and Use Advice,” will be available in the gift shop. I’ll be giving a talk Jan. 6, 2019, “Quilt Care and Share,” about taking care of quilts. Participants can bring a quilt to share and learn more about it. Please call the Gardens to register, 307-637-6458.
Immediately before the reception, from 1 – 3 p.m., photographer Pete Arnold and I are having a book signing for “Cheyenne Birds by the Month, 104 Species of Southeastern Wyoming’s Resident and Visiting Birds.” The books are available at the Gardens’ Tilted Tulip gift shop. You can also find the books at the Cheyenne Depot Museum, Wyoming State Museum, Riverbend Nursery and PBR Printing.
Hope to see you,
