MQX Has This Quilter On The Road Again
April 4th-9th in Manchester New Hampshire
Vending and Showcasing Quilters Groove Rulers!
I’m gearing up for “Vending Round 2”! My first experience vending taught me so much that I hope the insight I have gained while in Houston serves me well. I realize it’s going to take SEVERAL vending trials and tribulations to discover my niche in this arena.
Judy and I have packed and are about ready to hit the show floor with a “Less is More” approach. I shipped entirely too much product for the Houston International Festival. I was overzealous with what I assumed was needed for the booth and by the end of that show Judy and I were not happy campers. The amount of items that remained was disheartening. I guess not everyone uses rulers…😳 who would have thought.
Where is Mary Poppins when you need her? I am sure Judy would agree that the fatigue that consumed us at the conclusion of our initial vending extravaganza had us feeling miserable. Those dreaded hours of packing boxes, which would be shipped back to PA, was exhausting. If only Mary Poppins would have floated my way, I would have happily treated her to a lovely dinner and drinks (and even thrown in some free rulers, who knows maybe she’s a quilter at heart)!
But now I am moving on and revving up for the MQX Show! I will be teaching one class and vending (booth 188).
Has anyone out there already reserved some time for this event? If so let me know, I’d love to see you!
