Set up at a lovely quilt show

 I received an opportunity to set up a table space at a quilt show near Evansville, IN. The show was sponsored by Quilts N Bloom. The guest speaker was the designer of Kansas Troubles fabric (sold by Moda). There was a few other vendors and a humunnnngous display of toy and salesman sample sewing machine. To. Die. For. There were prob 150-200 of them. We crammed our table and even used the skirt tail of the quilt covering the table to create a bit more display space. This is Penny's hand dyed wool yarn. So yummy.Debbie took these pics with her phone. Technology! Amazing stuff :o) The table booth was a bit rumpled up in the photos, but that was a good thing. It meant folks had been lookylooing about. Pristine means, no touching/no buying. We like messy.
 Ridiculously full table. Pincushions of several different mediums, wool covered tape measures, felted small bags and wool Teddies were the gist of it. I couple of painted goodies also.
Don't know what the smirky smile is about, but here I am with 2 hours sleep. After getting up at 5am and driving 2 hours. :o) But all good and worth it. Got to see some sweet friends (my shout out to Phyllis and Dawn), spend time with my sister Debbie who was a doll to come along and made a bit of money. Always a nice thing. Penny and Mark did the Farmer's Market for us, so we were spread out thin that day. Made us all think of the old craft show days. Our next show will be a wool show (rug hooking being the primary focus but lots of great primitive and craft vendors also) in September. I will have a 10' x 10' space there.
Just thought I would show you a bit of my day last Saturday. 
I am blessed. ~Angela
