Beaumont 2018 Quilt Show

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!

    The quilts that you shared are spectacular. I kept thinking one was my favorite then the next was my favorite…. I finally decided that the fingerprint is my favorite.
    I will definitely go to the show in 2020.
    Thank you, g

  3. It was a great show – sorry I missed saying hello – our first time to vend also and the show committe and attendees made it a great show for us. The quilt were stunning and inspiring – thanks for the photos and fabulous summary. Glad you enjoyed the show too!

    I am so glad you were able to come and share our beautiful show with us. Your booth was very homey and nice. Enjoyed meeting your mother. See you soon and in 2020

    What lovely quilts! Thank you for sharing. I appreciate the times you included the artists’ names, but could you tell me who made the fingerprint one? And who made the “Use it up, wear it out” scrap quilt? That was a common phrase during the Depression, and still viable today. I have pinned some of these lovely quilts to my Pinterest quilting boards, and I’d like to give proper credit. Third question: where is Beaumont? 🙂 Thanks again!

    • ronda926 says:

      yes, it was a great show! I don’t know who made that quilt with the print on it, but I can find out if you like. I took my Mom to the show and she knew the phrase well, in fact, she said one of my Uncles said it often. Beaumont is a big port town and is northeast of Houston, Texas. We have to drive through it to get to Louisiana. Beaumont has a lot of history.

      • janetamarney says:

        Thank you for answering so quickly! Yes, I would love to have the artists’ names for both the fingerprint quilt and the “use it up” quilt, if possible. You are so lucky to live near Houston – I bet you go to IQF every year! I’ve been about 5 times. It’s the biggest and the best show! I take hundreds of photos and post them on my facebook page for those who couldn’t make it there. Everyone loves seeing the beautiful quilts, and I’ve been able to expose a lot of non-quilters to this wonderful art form. 🙂

    Do you know what the pattern is for the quilt with the triangles and the gold zig zag or where it can be purchased? Thanks for your help!

  7. janetamarney says:

    Thanks for the info! It’s so important to give credit to the artists! 🙂
