Saturday we drove up to Bennington Vermont to attend the show. This year I entered one quilt, Jacobean Peacock. The weather was crisp and cool and we had a great time. The town has a wonderful farmers market right down the street from the show with delectable homemade cookies and breads. Just could not resist an oatmeal raisin cookie; so big it was enough for both of us.
Today UPS delivered my quit back home and to my surprise the box contained two ribbons, a Vendors Choice and a People’s Choice (2nd place). Then at the bottom was an envelope with a prize to go along with the People’s Choice ribbon. What a great surprise.
If you are ever traveling in the Bennington Vermont area in September you should stop at this show. It has great quilts and a large assortment of vendors.
