While we were at the Ozark Piecemakers Quilt Show in Springfield last week, we met some of the vendors that will be coming to the Festival in June.

Rachel of Thread Therapy won us over with her enthusiasm!  She is looking forward to meeting new friends next year.

Laura Murray talked to us about her beautiful designs using paint sticks.  She has participated in the two previous Festivals and agreed to teach again!

Doris Deutmeyer, Fabrications by Doris, will also be a returning vendor with new patterns to share.  Her class for fusible applique will sell out early if the response of our friends is any indication!
