Lots of cool quilty stuff happening right now in Portland. The brilliant Denyse Schmidt is giving a lecture at The Museum of Contemporary Craft tonight. Also, The Quilts of Gees Bend are on Portland right now! They are hanging out over at the Elizabeth Leach Gallery until August 1st. I saw them in San Francisco a few years ago and my life has never been the same! If you are in Portland, be sure to pay them a visit.
