The Last of the Quilts from Missoula
The quilt show was held in two different gyms, a multi-purpose room and several hallways in the high school. I liked how they used signs with flowers (of course) to let the attendees know where to go. And, of course, what quilter doesn’t want to follow a sign that says “MORE QUILTS”?
Being a vendor at a quilt show is a LOT of hard work! A lot of packing, hauling, unpacking, setting up, repacking and hauling again! Besides all the quilts, patterns, notions, stationery, fabric, and props, we also take the poles, curtains, table skirts, and sometimes the tables and chairs! You always hope that you take home less than what you brought! My husband, Tom, is indeed the “Master Packer”. Everything in the booth gets packed into our Nissan Quest van with just enough room for us in the front seats. It is a lot of hard work but we get to meet a lot of very nice people who love quilts “almost as much as I do”!! Can’t think of a better way to spend a weekend!
