Making Headlines

A couple of weeks ago a young reporter visited my studio for an interview.  Initially, her editor had planned just a blurb about "Prairie Performance" in the Knoxville News Sentinel.  After being here, she went back to the editor saying there's a whole lot more story to be told.  We opened this morning's newspaper to find a BIG photo of "Prairie Performance" on the front page of the Community Section accompanied by a nice article.
Go here to see the "PP" photo and read the article.  There are a few misstatements, but overall the information is correct.

Go here to read all the posts I wrote during the process of creating "Prairie Performance".

How nice for you Nellie. Your studio looks so orderly and interesting - you put me to shame! I've never known a journalist yet get all the details right.

Fabulous, Nellie! And at least they spelled your name right ;) Or maybe I missed that, I was so busy reading about you making 'traditional' quilts...
