Here I am with Margaret and Judy. Another sister, Susan was also there, but I guess she was taking the picture! Anyway, we had a great time together. Aren't sisters awesome?!
The booth was very simple, but showed the quilts well. I didn't hang my awning or lay any fancy floor as usual. Hopefully people could still tell it was a Jillily booth.
I took some fabric to sell yardage and it went really well. I came home and had to order more!
We kept the demo area of the booth busy with lots of quilters learning about bias tape and Appli-Glue and Poke-A-Dots. I love teaching the demos, but it is exhausting! Good thing Margaret was there--she's a pro!
Susan was busy running the check-out counter with Judy. Our booth was in the "Pavillion," or tent. It is an additional area attached to the convention center. It was a great spot, but on Saturday we had quite the wind storm, and some booths were knocked down. Ours was very windy and all the quilts were blowing in and out--it kind of looked like we were on a ship! Because of the wind noise and flickering lights, I think some of our customers stayed inside that day, but it was still fine. We're sorry if we missed you! We didn't blow over after all.
I wanted to show you two new projects I just introduced at Road. The first one is called "Checkmate." It is a small table topper or wall hanging in red white and black. There is just a tiny bit of applique to add to the design.
The next one is called "Tangled Daisies." This little runner is made up in the green colorway, but I think it would also be fun done in the reds or blues of Park Drive. Don't you?
I am amazed that I was able to go and do a big show like that and stay well and not get too tired! I have been so blessed! I am home and busy working on new projects for upcoming fun stuff. I have started scheduling workshops again for 2016. If your guild needs a speaker or teacher, I would love to come!
