After lunch in downtown Brentwood, California, Allison and I were wandering around.
Saw a sign for a Quilt Show inside the Brentwood Community Center.
Allison is super into quilting, which means I'm super into quilting.
So we went in.
Admission was $10 each. To look at quilts! Although the air conditioning was humming and I remarked, "The A/C is worth the 10 bucks."
We were the youngest people there by about 40 years.
And I was the most handsome and masculine dude there BY FAR.
So it wasn't all bad.
Here are some pics..
Now here are a buttload of photographs of quilts, stuffed animals, and sewing machines that I saw and was impressed with.
You walk around Walmart and Target and see a ton of blankets and comforters probably strung together by 6 year old Chinese children in 20 seconds and you take bedding for granted.
But the craftsmanship, hard work, time, handcrafted-ness, and love that go into quilting is quite beautiful.
Some cool, funky stuffed animals I dug..
And my favorite part: Old school vintage Singer sewing machines.
Dude buys them, fixes them up, and restores them, and in some cases, paints them all pretty.
I hope you enjoyed my pictures. Thank you for your time. Have a lovely day.
