Oh my! Burned chicken can be hard to clean up. Hope the crock pot survived! :P I wish I could have been at the open house but it is way too far for me to come! Thank you for including us in the fun!

I have a few more pictures to share with you from Market. I design and set up the Henry Glass booth (with lots of help) so I have to show you!
They choose a Halloween theme this Market so they could showcase their Halloween fabric lines. We had the same basic booth configuration that we used at Spring Market. Here is the view from the front of the booth.
There was a lot going on. Inside the booth are the sales tables and the center display area featuring witch hats and brooms, and some candy bags. My favorite part was the creepy chandelier that hung in the center of the booth.
On one outside corner we had a graveyard -- "Rest in Pieces" seemed to fit perfectly into the quilting theme. All of the new fabric collections were framed and featured on the front walls.
We had some halloween lights and a garland of Henry Glass halloween fabric strips ran around the top of the booth. That was a nice touch of color to our basic black booth.
Another favorite part of mine was the windows! I hung old windows along both sides of the booth, so it was like a haunted house. They were crooked and dirty and draped with old fabric. It looked so cool in person, the pictures just don't do it justice. Anyway, there were a lot of shops visiting the Henry Glass booth, and it was a lot of fun.
One of the front corners was a demo area where we had the designers give short informative demonstrations with their fabrics. That was a big hit. Each designer gave out prizes to all who came and they were also entered to win a grand prize of fabric. The demos were busy all through Market, and it was a good way to meet the customers. All in all, I think it was a fun, successful booth.
Make sure you see all the new Jillily fabric collections, and ask for them at your local quilt shop!
