Dallas Quilt Celebration

We are busy, busy, busy at FriendFolks!!!  Got a special surprise that has just gone to the printer, expecting it in the warehouse any day now - be watching for a post on that soon!  Today, we are working on another surprise coming right on the heels of this one.  So excited about a lecture and workshop with Suddenly Sewing in Ft Worth, Texas next week and lots of new fabric in for kits and projects!  It's a whirlwind around here!!

In the midst of all this, we had a wonderful time at the Dallas Quilt Celebration just a few weeks ago and I thought I would take a moment to catch my breath and share some of the pictures with you.

Here are some shots of set up.  It's always such an overwhelming feeling to see the bare booth when you first walk in...but, thrilling to watch everything come together.

Here's our sweet Hailey (who worked her first show this time...and loved every minute of it!) - since she has the "youngest" body, she volunteered to crawl into the truck and hand us boxes and crates!  My knees were SO thankful!

We took some time before this show to really organize everything, so things went much more smoothly and a whole lot quicker!!  Here is the finished booth...all ready to go!

They say "if you build it, they will come" and it proved true in Dallas!  We were busy within 30 minutes of the doors opening and stayed busy the entire weekend!!  Hailey was able to get a couple of pictures of the booth after the show started, but this was all we got - couldn't get out of the booth after this!  That's a great problem to have!

A big thank you to everyone who came out to see us in Dallas.  We loved seeing so many of our friends and making new ones!  We look forward to seeing you in Dallas in 2014!
