Quilting is making a comeback amongst the crafty types. In a query for some of the most searched crafts in online search engines, Californians chose quilting and quilt shows.

I've never been to a quilt show, but I plan to attend one in 2024, even if I don't get to make it to one of the big league quilt shows like the ones below.

The draw to a quilt show is to check out the newest fabrics, block patterns, quilting and sewing books, and sewing machines, plus you get to stop by the vendor booths and make new friends who are just as obsessed with quilting as you are.

If you've been secretly (or not so secretly) wanting to become a quilter, start by joining your local quilt guild. I'm lucky enough that our county fair lets the quilters pretty much take over one of the fairground's buildings to display gorgeous quilts made by local sew-meisters.

It looks like going to a national quilt show is a ton of fun, especially if you go with a friend!
