Festival of Quilts 2010 and The Bag Making Bible

I had a lovely day at the Festival of Quilts yesterday and of course took a look at the bag section for some inspiration.  I don't think I'll be making any of these in the near future though...

Impressive aren't they?  There were also some lovely clothes; I particularly liked these colourful jackets:

I stopped by the Coats stand where Lisa Lam was signing copies of her new book, "The Bag Making Bible" I didn't buy, but it's definitely going to be on my Christmas list this year!  Lisa also has a great blog and an online shop which sells everything you could ever need to make a bag - a fantastic resource. 

I've posted pictures of some of my favourite quilts from the show on my other blog if you want to take a look.

  1. Looks like you had a great time, Jenny! Those bags are something else. I adore Lisa...her U-Handbag blog is fabulous and she is so generous in sharing her information and expertise! I'm going to have to put her book on my Christmas list, too!



    P.S. I took a class at a quilt show to make one of those jackets...uhm, making clothes is definitely not my forte and I'll be sticking to bags! :o)


Please leave me a comment, I love to hear from you!
