First stop was the Fort Worth Show of Antiques & Art (formerly known as the Dolly Johnson Antique Show). There are always many quality dealers at this annual show and this year was no exception. There were so many beautiful things but I particularly want to share with you some sewing related stuff we saw. This was my favorite booth. J Compton Gallery of Wimberley, Texas. Folk art was the order of the day for this booth.

There was another booth that had a collection of toy sewing machines but I wasn’t able to get a good picture of those, darn it!
There were quite a few quilts but here are a couple of quilts that really caught my eye.
[I am not affiliated with any of these antique companies. Just loved their merchandise and wanted to share with you.]
Next time I’ll post more about the Maverick Quilts Exhibit at the National Cowgirl Museum. In the meantime, may your bobbin always stay full,
