What a great way to begin my time here in New Hampshire. There’s nothing better than starting the Quilting Show with a class that consists of amazing students eager to learn!
I was extremely proud to give my Teacher’s Ribbon to:
Marie Alexander from Groton MA
BUSY, BUSY, BUSY…What a Great Machine Quilting Show!
Judy and I have been on the go; teaching and also vending in booth 188! Meeting, educating and sharing all that Quilter’s Groove Rulers have to offer to those who quilt, these last few days have been a whirlwind of events. But with all the incredible individuals we encounter each day we can’t help but smile and realize how lucky we are!
Did I mention we have been busy? Did I mention how much I love sharing my craft with fellow quilters? This adventure to New Hampshire has been simply marvelous!
Are you in town? If so please stop by and say hello! If you have attended MQX over the past few days I’d love to hear what you’ve done and if you enjoyed your time in Manchester!
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!
