That’s all the time you have left to get to Winterset, Iowa, and see Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s Retrospective exhibit: “Playing with Purpose”.
It’s at the Iowa Quilt Museum in Winterset, Iowa, right now, and it’s a wonderful exhibit. I really wanted to go see it while it was hanging because I quilted several of her quilts that are hanging there, and let’s face it, that’s the only way any of my work is ever gonna be in a museum!
So My Cowboy took me up there on June 29th to watch her give her presentation on “Creativity and Play”.
The museum had these great posters, so I bought the ones that had pictures of quilts I quilted, and Victoria and I both autographed them — haha!
We had a lot of fun, and I ran into several people I knew, including Jody Sanders, the editor of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine. We had our picture taken all together:
I also got to meet and make some new friends. There’s a great quilt shop just a few doors down from the museum: Piece Works Quilt Shop. I got to meet Joyce, the owner, and Tony Jacobson (the manager) and his wife, Jeanne. And I might have purchased some fabric!
The museum is so nice. Completely aside from the fact that Winterset is an absolutely charming town with a lot to see and do, I really want to go back when I have more time to spend and when there’s another exhibit to see at the museum, and also do some more shopping at Piece Works Quilt Shop!
Meanwhile, Victoria’s exhibit is there until July 29th — two more weeks — so if you haven’t gone yet, you still have a chance to go see it while it’s there — it’s a fun trip! You should go!
