On Wednesday, I went over to Latimer Quilt and Textile Center, in Tillamook, Oregon, to see Mary Kerr's superb exhibit, Vintage Revisited. Been looking forward to it for a long time. I had proposed the exhibit to the Latimer Board back in 2011, after meeting Mary in Paducah. Finally, we would get to see the Vintage Revisited quilts in person! There is a reception at Latimer tomorrow, Sunday, January 13th, from noon to 4 p.m., and the show will run until March 2nd. The reception and display will also include "Everything Old is New Again" challenge quilts, and the unveiling of the 2013 raffle quilt.

Now that I've traveled around to some of the bigger quilt events and met several of the artists, I have to say, the women behind Vintage Revisited are amazing, talented, and worthy of tremendous respect. The group maintains a strong bond, a sisterhood. Many of them are involved with the national quilting organizations, and travel to events where they reunite. I met Mary and Sue Reich in Paducah in 2011, I met Lisa Ellis when she spoke at the Northwest Quilters Guild last year, and several others were in Lincoln, at the American Quilt Study Group Seminar.
