Don't ask God to make your life easier, ask Him to make you a stronger person.

Statesville, North Carolina . . . . .

Tomorrow and Friday are the next big show days for me.  I have been in the kitchen again for the last week (again) but this time with two pots.  Here is a portion of what I did to get ready. . . .


Here is the blurb that they sent us to share with all. . . . 

Our third annual Quilting and Needle Art Extravaganza in Statesville, NC. will be this Friday and Saturday, Jan. 28 and 29, 2011 at the Statesville Civic Center, 300 South Center St.  

Quilting and creativity will rock.  

The hours are 9 am – 5 pm.  Admission is $5.00.  The weather promises to be great, none of the snowy problems that we had last year.

We’ve been busy cutting fabric and making kits.  The bakery has been busy making goodies and Mayo’s has a fabulous lunch selection ready.  Plan to spend the day.  Knitters, be sure and bring your yarn samples if you need to select buttons.  

We’ll have 41 shops there to inspire you to sew, knit, button, paint, quilt and just about any thing else that you can do with needle and thread.  If you are in the market for a new machine, there will be several sewing machine and long arm quilting machine dealers on site.  

You can compare without driving all over town.

If you don’t like a crowd, then come to the show about 2 pm.  The crowd starts to thin out and you can shop with plenty of room.

Sometimes the parking lot at the CC can fill up.  Go to http://quiltersgallery.net/the-quilting-and-needle-art-extravaganza-parking-map-and-hotel-info/ and you can print a map of the other public parking lots in Statesville.

Lastly, thank you for supporting small businesses.  Your business is important to us and allows us to do what we love.

Hope to see you there!  I'll be in Booth #21 on the back wall!

Blessings, Cathi
