The Quilt Show, Garment Display






My friend Barbara and I set up our display on Friday spending most of the day. There were hassles at first with the platforms (set up too high and too small) but we got those worked out. Good thing we got there early. Once the platforms were in place we got busy arranging the dress forms and mannequins and unpacking all the clothes. We decided to arrange the clothing for best aesthetic flow instead of grouped separately by which one of us made them. So they are mixed in the arrangement. You can tell some of Barbara's by the rust tones. She also made all the beautiful children's clothing for her grandchildren.

The quilt show was really well attended both Saturday and Sunday. People were coming around studying our things, some taking pictures, and many asking questions. It seemed really well received and many members of the quilt guild came over to express appreciation for us doing this. It was really fun to do. The extra bonus was I got to hang out with Barbara for the 3 days.
