Last Thursday, I had the pleasure of attending one of Julianna's evening tea classes.
Altho', this one had a different twist!
The ladies decided to have a tea version of a dinner theatre, by staging a mystery theme tea party-
THE CASE OF THE CRAZY QUILT CAPER
We all received printed invitations, and when we arrived - the room was hung with an assortment of gorgeous vintage quilts. The quilts were owned by Julie and Susan and were made by their mothers, grandmothers, and husband's grandmothers.
Several attendees volunteered to act out a part (I was NOT one of them!) Quillinda, the Quantam Quilter (portrayed by shop owner Julie), was trying to discover who stole Grandma's prize winning quilt from the quilt show. It was a fun evening- I did not guess right - actually, only one person guessed who stole the quilt!!!
This mystery was from a script from Maxine's Mystery Tea Parties
Here are more than a few photos from that evening! You can click on all pix for a closer look.
All tables were beautifully set!
The tea room part of Julieanna's shop is a work in progress- it is not quite ready to be opened. So, the quilts hanging managed to cover up the unfinished walls quite well!! The shop is housed in an historic building, owned by Julie. We all can't wait for the tea room to be opened!
Simple decorating - fabric squares angled across the center of the table - a piece of orphaned china repurposed into a fancy pin cushion, a sewing scissor chatelaine (I'm making one of these!)
Above is "my" lovely teacup

I hope you enjoyed "attending" the tea mystery party with me!!!
