What is a quilt show without a fabulous vendor mall? I love seeing all the new and old products and playing with the new sewing machines. So much fun and so much money!
I fell in love with these antique thread drawers. I suppose it was a good thing that my money and space were limited.
I could have gotten myself in some real trouble.
Of course along with the vendors comes seeing old and new friends:
And along the way I collected a lot of paper:
business cards, brochures, coupons and dreams.
I also spent a little money here and there:
I felt as if I restrained myself fairly well.
I did throw a couple things in this photo that I didn't buy at a booth: my paintings from the Tsukiniko Ink class with Judy Coats Perez and a photo transfer on felt that Lesley Riley gave me when I was helping her clean up after a demonstration. All treasures.
If money had been no object I would have also brought home a couple more items: one or two new sewing machines along with a table or two to put them in, lots of batting, wooden stamps, Tjaps, a larger Gelli plate, quilts from the SAQA auction, and more fabrics.
Just one or two more things. ;)
