NSS 2012: Quilt Cal Debut / Day 1


Here it is! The 2013 Quilt Calendar. A beast of a calendar at 26" x 40". It's hand screenprinted on 100# cover, 100% recycled stock, and hangs from two oak bars clamped together by two brass bolts & wing nuts. It's a statement piece that turns into frameable art print after the month has passed. I love this calendar so much & am so excited that it was so well-received on the first day. 

The highlight of the day was Lotta Jansdotter visiting our booth, pointing to the calendar & asking if she can get it. I was starstruck. I could barely answer. Luckily, I pulled myself together enough to mutter an obvious yes! I was so bummed that she left no more than 1 minute before my Swedish speaking husband (and child, sort of) arrived! I love when he can speak Swedish to people & I would have died for him to speak to Lotta! Like I said, starstruck.


But back to the show. John and Griffin came to visit, play with the calculator, and chase all the balloon animals around. It was a great day seeing all my favorite stationery friends! More to come tomorrow.
