PIQF...Day 2 for us...Day 1 of the show
Boy, the show started off with a huge bang today with a record crowd and a record number of buses coming in full of very excited quilters! Due to the Houston show going on at the same time and illness on the part of our other "helper" we are managing to keep the booth going with only three of us! The nice thing about working at a quilt show is that you are always around happy people who have waited a long time to be there and everyone was very patient waiting for help. Quilters are some of the finest people I know.
Another cool thing about working this show is that I have taught for many of the local quilt guilds in this area over the past couple years. It's almost like a class reunion getting to see everyone again. I almost feel like I am teaching a thread class all day teaching people how to use threads, needles, answering questions, etc. It doesn't get much better!
I was finally able to take a picture of the stocked booth at the end of the day when the show was almost over...
We are going to leave a little earlier tomorrow morning so I get a chance to actually see some of the quilts in the show I've been hearing so much about. I'll try and get a few pictures for you...
