2010 Spring Quilt Market (Days 1 & 2)
Market set-up started at 1:30 on Wednesday. What a lot of work. 7 loads of stuff toted in from almost a mile away. That $16.00 unloading parking lot started to sound really good. Unfortunately, the tickets are sold out for Sunday tear down.
The old adage, "you can't get here from here" stands true during set-up. There were boxes and mammoth crates in every isle. My wonderful helper (Dale - husband) started calling it Quilter's demolition derby! When we were done and left at 5:30 the booth looked great and there were just a few tweaks left to do. I have to admit...I was exhausted....but couldn't wait for the next day!
Schoolhouse was today. Quilts Remembered had a minor role in the Passport Minnesota presentation. I walked on the stage of a very large ballroom, showed one of my quilts (Olive's Table Runner) which is my prize donation for this event and toured it around for 250-300 people to see. A lot of people seemed to like it and wrote down my booth number (#2340). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow. Friday is the official opening of Quilt Market and I'm very excited. Better get a good night sleep.
Enjoy the pictures of my booth set up and of Schoolhouse - Passport Minnesota. I will post more pictures soon.
