First Quilt Show of 2016

Yuma, Arizona       High 72 Low 46

This morning started out on the cool side, but by noon had warmed up nicely.

This morning we went to the quilt show at the Yuma Convention Center. There were lots of nice quilts entered and lot of vendors. I would have trouble picking out my favorite quilt, but I have put some of them on this post.
We liked this reminder to not touch the quilts.

We didn’t do much the rest of the day until this evening.

This evening there was an owner’s dinner at the club house. It is pot luck and is held once each month.There was lots of good food and we spent some time visiting with some of the owners that were sitting at our table. One of them told us that other years 81% of the people at this Park were from Canada, but the numbers seem to be somewhat lower, probably because of the low rate of exchange for the Canadian dollar. We have also heard that some of the Canadian owners are selling their lots here and are not traveling because of the low exchange rate. I checked the rate tonight and $100 US will buy over $145 Canadian. When we went through Canada in 2013, the Canadian dollar was worth more than the US dollar, but only by a little bit. This might be a good summer to visit Canada.

Tomorrow Cindy wants to go to the Arizona Flea Market. She wants to check out the fabric store there to try to find some white to match a project she has going. We looked at the quilt show, but no one seemed to have much white on white.

Thanks for visiting.
