2013 Craft show

I have sew neglected my blog this past year! This is the craft show that Ted and I did this year. It was not the most successful show I've done, but we had a great time and I got lots of compliments on my work and that's always fun. 
I did something a little different this year.  I brought my Juki sewing machine and demonstrated Free Motion Quilting from my booth.  It did attract crowds and LOTS of questions about what I was doing.  Interestingly enough, I heard a lot of people thought the machine was doing all the work and when I told them all my machine could do was a straight stitch and that I was controlling the stitches, there was some major jaw dropping going on!  On a more serious note, I feel that I educated some folks about how much work goes into making a quilt and that it is not something that just happens when you sew some scraps together!
 Here are some photos of my booth and some of the items (but by no means all) that I had for sale.
My biggest seller by far was the microwave bowls.
