My sister is spending afew days with her son (new owner of the yellow table runner!) - shetold me that they had spent yesterday at the Mennonite relief fundsale and auction. The link shows only a small segment of the quiltsthat were on display - she guessed that there must have been 1000's ofthem!! They had watched the auction for a while and thought that awinning bid of $1400 on one quilt was for a large queensized one - infact, it turned out to be a wallhanging: #90 "Going Home" - needlessto say, they enjoyed the food and atmosphere (long lines for sausageson buns).
Enjoy the show, jennellh
Our Mennonite sale was this weekend too. This was the first year is quite
some time that I didn't go out to see the quilts. They are rather
disappointing for the most part, but worth a peek. The auctioneers are the
best part. And the food. Darn...I'm sorry I missed it!
What a beautiful collection of quilts. Thanks Jenn.
And, what a great method of showing them - having the 'close' on each
made it so much quicker than usual - marvellous.
Did you 'find' the hidden NEXT button? It is up in the top right hand
side of the window so the 'close' only has to be used at the end -
this made the enlarged viewing of all the quilts very easy. jennellh
Of course not!
I never find anything that would make 'life' easier >g< I don't even
think that there might *be* something like that!
(On a very early school report the teacher wrote 'if there is a
difficult way to do something, Patricia will find it'!)

I admit that I only found it myself because the mouse rolled off by
itself! The new UK textile/quilt museum in York opening this week is
situated in the neighbourhood where I grew up - walking distance from
the site of my house (which is now a school playing field) - I've been
interested to read the items that they have available so far - do you
think that you will ever get there? jennellh
T button? =A0It is up in the top right hand
