If you have been on the fence about coming to Quilt Festival in Chicago, you need to think long and hard about missing Surviving the Runway this year on Saturday night. Quilting Arts editor Pokey Bolton always has something up her sleeve planning this extremely fun event, this year is going to be really wild with an 80’s prom theme.
Pokey, Barb and Helen just went shopping for their dresses, you can see that hilarious footage on the Quilting Arts blog. Just think of all that great dance music from the 80’s blasting on the convention floor and attendees furiously creating something to impress the judges and win some awesome Quilting Arts prizes. The competition is intense spurring people to do crazy things like put gel medium in their hair! Remember this from Houston last fall?
