It's only July 1, but the fireworks have already started! We have beautiful weather here in the Northeast. I'm hoping it will last through the holiday.
It's been a week since the Quiet Corner Rug Show -- a long time without a post, but I was hoping Barb would take up the slack this week. No such luck! She'll do anything to avoid writing.
We did okay at the show. We enjoyed the day, which started really early (we got up around 5:30 and left at 6:15). We were greeted by a whole passel of men who carried everything for us! Thank Bob, and Son-of-Bob (whose name is actually Kevin). We talked to several friends -- Barbara of Basket Garden Farm and Judy of 3 Bags Full had a booth -- and made some new friends, too. We had several repeat customers who remembered us from the Fairfield Grace show in April and the Newtown show in October. Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm stopped by with her daughter and her sister. (Lori had a hooking group that Barb was a member.) And Barb's current rug group -- Kathy, Carol, Judy, Mary and Colleen came and bought, too!
Here's a shot of our booth:
And a shot of Barbara and Judy's both:
All in all, it was a lovely day. We'll be vendors next time, too. This will be a biennial show, to give members time to hook more rugs.
