We had an incredible day in Ventura, California today with the Ventura Modern Quilt Guild, participating in National Quilt-In-Public Day.
In 2005, American knitting enthusiast Danielle Landes had the wonderful idea of encouraging knitters all over the world to leave the comfort of their own homes and to go out and knit in public—and the worldwide knitting in public day was born.
Soon, quilters joined those world-wide knitters in spirit and initiated a parallel event for quilters—Quilt-In-Public Day—which takes place on the 3rd Saturday in June.
We’re both a bit sunburned, but we had a great time visiting with friends and doing what we love. And, it was the perfect place to sew binding onto quilts!
