Pam C. found a funny speech online which was written by the husband of a quilter and delivered at Quilt Canada 2010. It was posted recently on the blog of The Sewing Lawyer. As Kay the blogger says, “It’s long but amusing, and so worth a read.”
Many of Allan’s stories about Gloria, her passion for quilting, and the “world-wide sub-culture” of quilters will strike a chord. Though sometimes bemused, he seems to be rather enjoying her exploits and travels, and is obviously a good-natured and supportive partner. His closing thoughts about his wife’s skills and creations are most wonderful.
And he is very funny! You must read the parts about bringing a Featherweight sewing machine through airport security in Calgary and the visit to “a little quilting shop in the heart of Alberta farming country.”
Thanks, Pam, for sharing this. Find Allan’s speech about quilting here.
