Halton Quilt Guild Show a great success!!

WOW! What a weekend (my apologies for taking three days to finally get this posted). The Halton Quilt Guild show was fantastic. So many great quilts on display and a huge vendors mall. Thanks for dropping by to say hello while you were there.

It was a great pleasure to introduce lots of new people to our store as well. We hope to see some of you soon.

The Royal Botanical Gardens was a great venue for the show and the organizers did a magnificent job all round.

Here's Nancy in our booth handing out our literature and chatting with customers.

Some of the vendors (including us) were located in the beautiful new Atrium of RBG which features a glass ceiling and a wall of living plant specimens. You can see the plant wall behind the booth directly across from us. Pretty amazing isn't it?

The glass ceiling was a bit of a problem when the unpredicable spring temperatures soared to 26 degrees on Saturday and the air conditioning couldn't keep up. However, we lived!

Jo-Ann came out to see the show on Sunday afternoon. And of course she found this one with roosters on it. She can spot them from a mile away!!

This weekend, May 2 & 3, we will be at the Brampton Quilters' Guild show being held at the Jim Archdekin Recreation Centre, 292 Conestoga Drive, Brampton. Hope to see some of you there ... drop by and say hello.

And now I must go and finish putting the binding on two new table runners that we have kitted up. We'll post pictures soon.

Happy Quilting!
