I think the most exciting time in my quilting career was winning the Jewell Pearce Patterson Award for International Quilt Teachers.
I think I walked on air for a week or so… it was as good as winning the lottery.
Each year, International Quilt Market honors a worthy quilting instructor with the scholarship, created in honor of the late Jewel Pearce Patterson. Patterson was a quilting teacher, one of the co-founders of the International Quilt Association, and mother of Quilts, Inc. president, Karey Patterson Bresenhan.
The Scholarship has now ceased elevating the winners to a select group. The last recipient was Lisa Walton from Australia. (we had three Aussie winners over the years)
I've just been made aware of an article in the Editorial of Quilters Newsletter.
Seven of us got together in Houston last year to share our individual experiences. There is a wonderful story there folks…..
And in a different box…..
Miss Tilly and Mr Kodi are very excited to see their Bamma in one of our prestigious magazines here at home….
It makes for good "Morning talk at school"
Recognition from your peers, such as the Jewell Pearce Patterson Scholarship is an honor.
Recognition for your work from the home community is wonderful.
Recognition from my Grandies means "I've made it"
Son Jamie was featured in the same magazine last year…. and they tell me he said…
"Thanks for doing my article…….but you should talk to my Mother" !!!!! enough said.
