Pacific International Quilt Festival...Setting Up
As many of you know I am one of the national educators for Superior Threads but my relationship with them didn't start there...it started working with them about five years ago at some of the major quilt shows around the country. I get the pleasure of helping to set the booth up, stock threads during the show, educating our customers on threads and having a really great time to boot! This year the Houston International Festival came about at the same time as PIQF so the Superior Threads team was split...most of the group is in Houston and Yeimy and Ryan flew from Houston to set up PIQF.
I traveled down to Santa Clara today and Yeimy and Ryan Henke were already here getting the booth set up. When many of you go to the quilt shows you only see the booths after they have been set up. Here's an insider view getting our booth going.
We always have to start with getting all the quilts hung...then we arrange the tables...drape the tables, stock all the threads and then we're ready to rock and roll for preview that night!
Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of the stocked tables so I will be sure to do that tomorrow...
Until then I'm off to jammies and some hand work...it's been a long day!
