I gave a party on the opening night of the Festival of Quilts to launch my new book.
Here are the principal players. Jane Glennie (book designer), Tom Messenger (artist) and me ready for the party to start.
My wonderful helpers, Jane Glennie, Kate Findlay and Kate Crossley, checked to see if everything was ready before the guests arrived.
Just time for a quick signature before the party started!
Many of the quilt artists who provided work for the book had never met each other before the party, so it was a very convivial affair!
Here I am in front of one of my pieces, Walk in the Woods, 5 April 2013 (a paper quilt).
I gave a little speech once everyone had a drink in their hand, thanking all those who were involved in the book, especially my publishers who helped to sponsor the party. Thank you very much to Sixth & Spring and GMC!
It was lovely to toast the book with Jane and Tom at my side. What a wonderful evening it was!
