ATCs: ___-ing up a storm

"Sewing up a Storm" by Cathy Dillon
As AQS QuiltWeek Chattanooga is a mere week away, area quilters, quilt shops and quilt guilds are frantically stitching labels and sleeves on the backs of quilts... cutting, folding and kitting quilting lovelies to showcase in their booths at the vendor mall... and double-checking rosters and disseminating information to volunteers who will be assisting at this upcoming city-wide quilting extravaganza.

I am among this vast group of [ahem… slightly crazy and frazzled] people.

The Artist Trading Card (ATC) artists in the FiberAntics ATC swap are also voraciously consuming their time with sewing, quilting, cooking and various indoor and outdoor activities as the summer begins to wane. These ATCs depict this month's theme, "___-ing up a Storm."

With no required Book Club books to plow through, this ATC artist says she's free to read the pile of books she really wants to read.

"I'm Cooking up a Storm"

This ATC artist says you'll find her wearing an apron canning and baking. I thinks she's got a great idea to accompany this task with a tasty libation.

My personal invitation to you:
Come visit Chattanooga next week for QuiltWeek, September 10-13! Dance, run and skip on over to see us and be in awe of what all the talented quilters and fabric artists will have on display all over the city as well as at the American Quilters Society (AQS) Show at the Chattanooga Convention Center [1150 Carter St., Chattanooga]. There are activities happening early in the week before the AQS quilt show officially opens, as well as exhibits and performances the following weeks and months through the end of the year.

  2. Hi FB Boomer, Thanks for posting a comment! I have quilts in the AQS show next week at the Chattanooga Convention Center (see July 1, 2014 blog post), at the TN Aquarium exhibit (Aug. 7 post) and two at the Chatt Theatre Center (Aug. 26 post). These locations should be accessible. --Veronica
