I spent the evening yesterday updating the All that Jazz Gallery as they left Australia’s shores yesterday. Jerry had a business trip to the states so he is escorting them over.
We had a big glitch last week because Pam Kellog dropped me an email to say that she could not act as our agent to sell the quilts in the states. Everyone has stages in their life where things get complicated and Pam had to pull out for personal reasons. However, it is sorted as after a few frantic emails Willa Fuller of In the Willawags has said she will act as an agent in the US and sell these quilts on Ebay for us.
I don’t think Willa quite realised the sense of relief when she said she would do it but I am sure everyone can imagine. I could have sold them from here in Australia, and would have done if I had to, but I really believe that we will get the price for the quilts in the States. So this is a big public thankyou to Willa for coming up trumps.
For those who do not know Willa, she has been a very active member of the online community for years. The past 6 years Willa and I have hosted a swap between members of Australian southerncrosscrazies discussion list and women on the big American lists CQembellishers discussion list and the Crazy Quilt discussion list. I have acted as the Australian hostess and Willa has been the US hostess. I have grown to consider her a friend and she is a trusted member of the community. In my life I have a number of people who I feel I can turn to when I need them and Willa is one of them. So this is a big round of applause to her.
Anyway yesterday Jerry boarded the plane with the quilts so they should be in Willa’s hands by the end of the week. We have yet to decide when they will go on to Ebay but it is soon. Stay tuned for announcements about this.
So after his departure I decided it was time to tidy up a bit and the Gallery was updated. Now all three quilts are there in all their glory and when you click on each block in the quilt you are taken to large images of each individual block. There are also larger views of each quilt as well. So enjoy!
