Don’t faint! I’m trying to catch up on my “newsy” stuff, therefore another post! I was asked by one of my favorite groups to look into and try to vend at the Beaumont quilt show. I put it off too long, but it eventually got worked out and I was able to vend. I was reluctant to vend because the thought of packing and moving my store to another site it not that compelling and then there is the thought process of trying to figure out what to take or not.
Once the final decision was made that I was going, the packing began. I took a good variety of Primitive Gathering woolens, Valdani threads, some wool and quilt kits that I had and off I went. My mom was my traveling companion and it went pretty well. The vending thing is going to take some getting use to, but it was a great way to get my name/shop out there and maybe more customers coming my way.
My lovely assistant!

Saturday morning, Mom and I got to Ford Park early and went toured all the quilts. They had a bunch of quilts, maybe around 400 or so. I took a bunch of pictures and I thought I would share.
