  1. I would extend this. I was on a list many years ago and a lady was thrilled because a quilt she had made (pieced and quilted) was to be included in the book. When I got a copy of the book I had to contact her to ask which was hers, as there was no credit at all in the book. It upset me and I started looking a bit more closely at the quilts in print. Things are changing. You see more makers/quilters being credited and I think this is important, valuable, and fair. In the books I produce I will be including information on the people who made the quilts I've used in my book. On the other hand I do give a large discount on work I do specifically for books on the understanding I will be credited. I don't think it's brought in any work directly but I see it as encouraging a behaviour I value. I hope that as time goes on we will see the quilting industry getting better about giving credit where due. Ferret

    Thanks guys. The folk at the quilt show do a great job with these slideshows. I handed over a huge number of photos and they made the video from that. Ferret

    A couple of things that might interest you ladies, that aren't mentioned on the slideshow. Yes there really is a wall that obstructs one end of my frame, and it's only a 10' domestic frame too, so much smaller than the APQS one. No I can't get around the back of the machine without climbing over it (it's full underneath. The workshop where it was blocked and where I hung it up part done is where I teach. A shop called Patchwork Corner, about 14 miles away. She lets me use the workshop over Christmas when she is away. Ferret

    It's got some good ideas in it. The layout doesn't sing to me, but it inspires me and the price was good if I remember correctly. Ferret
