PTA - Pt 1

We had our first meeting of the new year at Georgia Bonesteel's home...but first a trip to the Curb Market in Hendersonville. I had never been and now that Georgia has a booth there, a good reason to go. The market is open on Thursdays and Saturdays in winter and additonally tuesdays from March on through summer and fall. It has a wonderful country feel and I felt like I was back at my aunts house in upstate NY.
This market offers space for a yearly can share the space or not but it has to be manned on the days that it is open. 
Georgia has her beautiful quilts and other fiber items along with her books. She is also sharing space with Gen Grundy - another wonderfully talented quilter. Georgia keeps her BERNINA in the little space between booths that back up onto one another. This way she can sew when traffic is slow.
Her booth looked amazing and full of beautiful fiber goodies.

A lot of Gen's very colorful work was hanging across the top.

The market accommodates many vendors with a wide variety of things to offer...most are hand made. I love dried flowers and had so many, many years ago ...but for a while they went out of style but now they seem to be back.
Cathy, a very sweet and talented lady makes these wonderful embroidered towels, potholders etc and will do custom orders.
Creative gourds...
and food products like these multi colored eggs, honey, jams and apples. After the market, it was back to Georgia's home which she calls - Quilt Built...for lunch and show and be continued.
