Open Thread is an arts & literary service organization based out of Pittsburgh, whose books, events, and online presence highlight emerging artists and writers from Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia. The Pittsburgh SPF is Pittsburgh’s annual small press festival, organized by Open Thread, sponsored by AIR: Artists Image Resource, and supported in part by The Heinz Endowments.
The QT Pi(e) Project was one of the artisanal vendors on site. I made the pies, and Erin made the ice cream as well as the adornments. She represented the QT Pi(e) name for both of us while I spent the weekend in the heated wilderness. The flavors on the menu were: honey pear, honey peach and maple plum. As usual, the QT Pies and ice cream were made from all local ingredients!
