Sanford, NC . . . . .

I have been trying for days to post something about the show in Sanford.  First it was 37 dye pots in one week.  Then trying to pack everything and load the car.  The boys got out of the fence.  The storage shed roof sprang a leak.  Yada, yada, yada.

But I made it!  Several hours of setting up the booth after 3 hours of driving, I was too pooped to take a picture.

And then first thing this morning the customers started.  The first one being MARY at Quilt Hollow.  It was good to see her again!

This is my first break today.  I am NOT complaining at all.  



This is the booth after 4 hours of sales. 

The show is in Sanford, North Carolina.  It's southwest of Raleigh and not far from the famous Pinehurst golf courses.  The show runs today until 5:00 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 until 5.  This isn't just a quilt show, it's also a fiber arts show with yarn vendors, button vendors, rubber stamp vendors, lots of quilt shops, etc.  It's held at the Dennis Wicker Civic Center in Sanford across from the high school.  Click on the link for directions and the address.

Hope to see you here tomorrow!


Blessings, Cathi
