Festival of Quilts - can't wait!

Just returned from a short break in Glasgow - celebrated our 40th Wedding anniversary and my birthday with excellent food and a visit to GoMA, where I was particularly struck by a film from "Govan to GoMA" showing the impact of art on a group of elderly residents of Govan. Their new found joy in drawing was quite moving.
The modern architecture along the Clyde was also worth seeing along with the many city centre buildings once you could look above the ubiquitous shop front and look at the glorious designs above.
What a good idea Twisted Thread had in making the show programme available in advance of the show. Mine arrived yesterday and Its really helped being able to see in advance who will be there and where things are.
I am particularly looking forward to seeing the work of Mary Lloyd Jones (G28) and her very abstract pieces which come from her love of landscape and Pia Welsch (C29) whose works experimenting with ovals looks very interesting.
Of course I'm also looking forward to the Art and Contemporary pieces, and its lovely to see so many from quilters I have had the pleasure of meeting.
