To encourage excitement for Road 2019, several contests were sponsored under the tag of “Get Ready for Road Give Away.” The first prize offered was a longarm quilting class taught by Linda Gosselin.
Linda is a Handi Quilter Educator who is a certified Art & Stitch instructor. She teaches online classes for both Handi Quilter’s Art & Stitch and Pro-Stitcher using Simulator. She quilts for customers, Quilts of Valor and for charity, and teaches quilting classes at local quilt shops. Samples of her work can be seen on her website.
Linda was flattered that her class was chosen for the prize. Road 2019 was Linda’s first time teaching at Road to California and her first time visiting California. She said she smiled nonstop during her classes because her students were doing “fantastic work.”
The winner for this giveaway was Lora Gearhart. Her winning entry appeared on our Facebook Page. She said that she was “super excited to win.” Lora had recently gotten in to free motion quilting on her domestic machine and was looking forward to giving longarm quilting a try. “I want a longarm machine now,” she said during her class.
Lora has been using rulers to help her with her domestic machine quilting and applied some of those principles as she worked on the longarm machine.
Road 2019 was also Lora’s first time at the show. She was employed by the City of Ontario’s Fire Department and was part of the team that inspects the Pavilion Tent each year prior to the Show. From doing that work, she knew she wanted to attend the Road and winning the class was a great way to get her to attend.
Road to California is all about giveaways before and during the Show. With 2020 being Road’s 25th Anniversary Show, we are already planning more giveaways than ever before to celebrate. Follow us here on the blog for the first announcements of all the great things happening for Road 2020.]]>
