The Quilts of Ann Brauer--June schedule

A monthly post on my schedule for the month of June.

Wow--can you believe it is June already? The year is absolutely flying by. Already the iris are blooming in my garden and I have the first of the day lilies. My tomato plants have started flowering.

For me, June will be a month of getting ready for shows later in the summer. This is good since it means I get to spend a lot of time in my studio in Shelburne Falls as the village gears up for the summer season. There is a lot going on this month. The Bridge of Flowers is in full bloom with new flowers opening almost every day.

On June 12 the Village becomes alive with the annual Riverfest. This celebration of the Deerfield River is a family event with sales, activities along the river and a wonderful parade of "critters" from the river. http://www.shelburnefalls.com.

For Father's Day the Trolley Museum just up the hill from me will be offering free rides to all fathers accompanied by a child of any age. The next week there will be a Civil War Re-enactment will be part of the annual Trolleyfest with many special activities. http://.www.sftm.org/events.shtml It should be fun.

In July I was selected from more than 100 quilt artists to have a show--The Landscape Quilts of Ann Brauer at Landmark at Eastview in Tarrytown, NY.This show which runs through October 1 may be viewed in person by contacting Wendy Kelley of Artworks at wtko@mindspring.com . I will be posting pictures of the show in July.

Then July 31 and August 1 I'll be participating in the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftspeople show in Wilmington, Delaware. I am very excited about this craft show which is indoors along the Riverfront in Wilmington. I will post more information about this next month. http://www.pacrafts.org/

Whew--I'm exhausted just thinking of this. I do continue to write posts to my blog a couple times a week. As you can see, I am also working on other social media. Feel free to join me on Facebook or Twitter. Or if you are near western Massachusetts, do drop by my studio--I am there most days except Tuesday--though call or e-mail me if you are coming from a distance.

Here's a picture of my most recent quilt.

Yes, this was the quilt that I've been working on--what do you think?
