Tampa MQG at the Lakeland Sewing Expo 2016!

This past March our guild had their very first quilt show, at the Lakeland Sewing and Quilting Expo!  We were incredibly lucky and honored with the spots for our quilts to hang, right in the main entrance!  Our guild decided to create our own "Think Spring" Challenge, creating a quilt that each member found a relationship to spring.  As our members walked by we secretly listened in to other quilters admiring our work.  We even had a few people ask for us, to learn more about our specific guild.  We hung and took down the exhibit ourselves, learning with great assistance from the ladies of the expo and the convention hall.Glad we were able to share our take on modern quilting with other quilters in the area, and learn more about us! We were even included in the program.  And by luck's chance, our QuiltCon Group Charity Quilt arrived back to us two days before the show.  It was able to be our star, right by registration.

  1. You can always find this place packed on a weekend night and sometimes they host parties that you can't get into, but other than that happening every once in a while this is the place to be. These lofty spaces have nice upstairs and down stairs area.
