It is official. It has rained for the last gazillion days in a row. I have so many great finishes to show you, but I just can not get photos in the dry/light. Instead you get inside pictures today.
You may remember a few weeks ago I held a stand at the Galway Food & Craft Fair. I had a 3 meter by 2 meter space to fill anyway I'd like. What great fun!
I brought in shelving units for the back and then hung quilts all around the walls. Each space came with a table, too, so I set up a little sewing space to both conduct demos and to occupy me when footfall was quiet. Made quite a few bee blocks right there!
You might notice an Oh Deer bunting hanging from the table. The three quilts you see above were all created by Erin of Billy Button Design. They were so beautiful! And the wonderful Sarah of Fairy Face Designs contributed iPhone covers and zippy bags. They were beautiful! On the shelving to the back you'll see cut FQs, perle and lots and lots of Aurifil. It was all topped off with my antique sewing machine. Nearly needed a crane to get her up there!
I tucked a few bolts in there too just in case someone was looking for yardage. Couldn't let them down!
And on the other side I hung Granny Mania and Chaos. Granny Mania sold and is now on its way to a newborn little fella in the US. Yippee!
It was an absolutely wonderful day. Fantastic to meet new-to-me quilters in Galway, so fun to see familiar faces and a great creative buzz from the other vendors. Thank you, Galway, for such a fantastic weekend.
Experienced craft fair hosts: any suggestions of how to improve next time? I'm always open to an idea or two!
