Hey, everyone, reporting on our third day at AQS, Knoxville.  It never ceases to amaze me what it might take to keep a quilter away from a quilt show.  Today we saw people with broken feet wearing  those cute 'blue' shoes, ladies in motorized scooters, ladies pushing walkers, ladies being pushed in a wheelchair by friends and loved ones, younger women with teeny tiny babies, etc., etc., etc......

There are over 150 vendors participating in this show so there is a huge variety of 'stuff' for sale.  These shows are as inspiring for us as they are for the participants.  We collect great new marketing ideas and lots of inspiration by speaking with other vendors.  It's always great to meet up with our vendor friends to see how they've been, where they've been and where they're headed.  And, of course, we get great inspiration from quilters who come into our booth.

Tomorrow is the last day of the show.  We break down at 5pm, load up and then start home early Sun. a.m.  So, I might not have time tomorrow night to do any blogging.

'Til we talk again, be sure to check out our website for new punchneedle patterns, the possibility of a new Civil War Chronicles Block of the Month (the educational portion will be about the wives of the Civil War Generals and how they fared on the home front while their husbands were away fighting the war) and we have other new items to offer.

Night, night......
