At the start of the year I was planning and preparing for my first three shows, the AQC, Craft & Quilt Fair Sydney and then Melbourne. It's hard to believe but the first two have been and gone and it's the eve of the third. Well it's the eve for Jan and I as tomorrow is set up day with a very early start in the morning. The first two shows have taught me that set up takes twice as long as I think it will. I've been trying to work out why this is and feel certain it's because the majority of my designs are small, achievable projects - little stuff that takes ages to hang.
For this show I've had help from Melissa (friend) and Bec (daughter). Melissa has packaged just about every kit with a Theodora Cleave button plus other bits & pieces and Bec, popped around after work, rolled every piece of felt and folded most patterns. A big thank you to both girls for their efforts as there is no way I would have achieved as much without them.
Make sure you drop by Stand G29 and say hi. The samples for the four new Christmas patterns, Must be Christmas, No Peeking, Deer Tree and Friday Girls Medallion will be on display. It's always so much nicer to see them for real.
Hope to see you there.
