Sisters In Cloth Extravaganza! 2010

Sisters in Cloth annually hosts what we have named Extravaganza. Every year Sister extraordinaire Yvette Howard hosts the event which includes vendors, lunch, demonstrations, show and tell and lots and lots of fun.

This year Betty Warner ( offered to lead demonstrations on several surface design techniques. You had to be there to believe how hard it was for this seasoned teacher to keep us all in was hysterical! At least she was laughing as
much as we were. She's pictured here with Class Angel Vivika DeNegre ( at the left.

We had a wonderful day browsing the vendors, eating lunch, Betty's demo and an incredible Show and Tell. This is one of the many pieces guest Judy Ross brought that showed off her wonderful free-motion quilting.

I've just finished the post on the Sisters blog ( I urge you to go's much more complete with all the vendors names and websites. As a tease I'll tell you that Laura Wasilowski always sends the BEST hand dyed fabrics (


  1. This looks like a lot of fun, Diane. I'd like to contact you and ask for details of how to put together a day like this one -- I belong to a group called ARTAA, and this might be just the thing for us. Thanks for sharing!


  2. I've just posted about Extravaganza, too.

  3. Sure looks like I missed a good time:) Glad it was such a success. You are such a creative, motivated group!

  4. Ha ha - I empathize. Keeping you guys in line is like herding cats. But you're more fun than cats!
