So, this post has some photos that aren't the best, but absolutely essential to show. You see, I had my first paid speaking gig the other day at the Mountain Meadow Quilt Guild in Sunriver. I think my hands were shaky and I still have a hard time getting a good exposure in a large, dimly lit room, but it's proof! For a person who has been terribly shy in her life, I think I did all right in front of the crowd. They were incredibly supportive. I should have taken a photo of the huge pile of quilts I brought. I called my presentation The Evolution of a Liberated Quiltmaker. I showed my very first quilt and my most recent quilt and many in between!
I love all the smiling faces here. I got lots of good questions and had fun telling the quilt stories. I hope to do it again sometime. This fall I plan to begin teaching and we'll see where it goes from there!
