Heading to Houston

The packing starts today! We'll load the trailer Wednesday night and head out bright and early on Thursday morning. Vicky's booth will get set up on Friday and she will open for her Prairie's Edge Patchworks business on Saturday. While she is selling her patterns, I will be shopping for the shop. Our friend, Dee Gerardy, is going with us to demonstrate our new projects. She will also help me shop.

On Monday evening, we will tear down Vicky's booth and start moving in our booth. Depending on our progress, we should be able to take part of the day Tuesday to play a little and maybe run down to Galveston. We open for business on Wednesday evening at 5:00. The International Quilt Festival is open from then until Sunday at 4:00. Then we load the trailer and drive to Dallas. We will get home Monday evening.

Thursday, November 11, begins the BBBETO "Deck the Walls" shop hop, through Saturday. Come and see our demos and new stuff we brought back from Houston.

Thursday, November 18, we will start our "Christmas Open House", featuring all the stuff from Market that we bought, and some quick and easy Christmas presents. We have lots of projects in mind for fun gifts for Christmas.

We will keep you posted about our schedule!

On The Road Again

We are headed to Des Moines today for the AQS Quilt Show that starts Wednesday. Today we will load the trailer, drive to Des Moines and get in line at the marshalling yard. We have to wait in line until they tell us we can go to the convention center and unload. After we unload, we'll play a little while, check into the hotel and grab a bite to eat. Tomorrow, we will set up the booth early and then hit a few quilt shops.

Wednesday we will be open for business. If you come to the show, be sure and stop by the booth to get a free gift. Just mention the blog and you can pick a 1/2 yard of fabric, compliments of the shop!
