I would also like to thank ALL of our quilters who entered. It was
tremendously gratifying that, knowing how busy you all were putting
together complex competition and hall costumes, and preparing for your
panels, workshops and demos, that you still took the time to make an
extra something, to honor one of ours in this way. Bobby would have been
moved to tears, I know--and also very proud of you. I know that for
some, it was a first quilt attempt. It was a lovely display, and is
being put into a slide who as we speak!!
Look forward to seeing at least some of you at Worldcon, and thank you
again for a marvelous exhibit/contest. Thanks also to JoAnn Abbott, who
stepped in almost at the last moment to judge our entries. There was an
award for the Best in Show entry, generously donated by Vicki Warren.
It's my fault that I forgot to bring it to hte con (I probably would have
forgotten to give it to the winner), but it will be mailed soon.
Yours in costuming, Lisa a>
