Back from Iowa and my book signing at my friend, Denise's quilt shop. I met Denise at Quilt Market several years ago and we became instant friends. We have the same passion, quilting, of course and get along great. I have been teaching once a year at Quilter's Window in New Hampton, IA since we met. When I told her about my book, she asked come to her shop for a book signing. I readily agreed. She had appetizers, wine tastings and specials at the shop. It was a wonderful turn out and there were many familiar faces plus a few new ones.
On Friday, Denise called me and gave me the good news. C&T had the books in their warehouse and were going to overnight the books to Denise so she would have them for the book signing! YEAH!! I was thrilled because after all, what's a book signing with no books?! It worked out great and we had a wonderful time. Here is a couple of pictures of the event:

Talking about the book to some customers.
If you ever get a chance to go to Quilter's Window, make sure that you stop by. It's a fabulous shop and she has a wonderful eye for color. A couple of year's ago her shop was a Top Ten Quit Shop with American Patchwork and Quilting and if you go, you will see why. Denise is starting to blog so make sure that you check it out. She is planning on doing some giveaways and updates you on what's new at her shop.
Denise is the only shop in the country to have my book right now. I don't even have any more copies than the one they sent me. I am going to check to see but I would think that this week I will get my copies.
Don't forget to go to Nicole's blog, Sister's Choice to see her progress on Rummy. It is also tutorial week so make sure you go to everyone's blog to learn some valuable tips and techniques.
Schedule of book tour:
