Hello everyone! Season 15 of Project QUILTING has already started with a BANG! Our first challenge had 227 entries!!! What!? That’s incredible. I remember jumping up and down when we would hit 100 entries – now the bar has risen to 200!! This is absolutely mind blowing!
Before we find out the second challenge (on Sunday, Jan 21), let’s meet this weeks Ultimate Weekly Sponsor – The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show! The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show is one of the most amazing shows you can attend and participate in.
The show is beautifully curated and the vendors are fabulous. I was honored to have a quilt of mine “In The Garden” take a 2nd place ribbon in the 2018 show. It was such a surreal time for me – definitely one I’ll never forget! The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show is also the home of Nancy Zieman and they continue to honor her legacy to this day. I was a guest on Nancy’s Corner way back in 2014 and it’s definitely worth a watch (or rewatch) if you haven’t seen it yet. Check it out HERE.
Mark your calendars for September 5-7, 2024 – this is a show you’re not going to want to miss!
I always love to help you get to know our Ultimate Weekly Sponsors a little more so I did a fun little interview. Enjoy! I’ve been doing these interviews for quite a few seasons now and I was starting to feel stumped on how to keep it fun and interesting. I decided to pull out the prize wheel (#ad) my daughter uses at cross country and track meets for TikToks. This way I will have five random questions for each Ultimate Weekly Sponsor. They might be all the same or all different – the wheel will decide!
Our interviewee today is Deanna Springer- vice president of marketing at Nancy Zieman Productions, a presenting partner of The Great Wisconsin Quilt Show with PBS Wisconsin. In addition to curating special quilt exhibits and educational opportunities for the event, she also serves as moderator of live video content.
