TIP: This is a tip from Nutshell News for transporting mini scenes to a show. Put a towel inside the container before you put in the display. First of all, the towel will cushion the display...but, secondly, you can remove the display easily by pulling up on the ends of the towel.
Well, I knew I would not get the quilt shop finished in time for the Show. If it had just been a matter of the round table to display all the Christmas fabrics, I might have been able to do it. BUT there was absolutely NO WAY I would get all the quilting accessories done and on the pegboard in time. (I was particularly disappointed that I didn't at least get to display all those spools of thread that I had worked so hard on.)
So I decided to put up a "Grand Opening October 15" sign! And put shipping boxes in place. Four of the shipping boxes were from our Lori Ann Potts workshop. The box middle front with all the bolts of fabric is a plastic box that I wrapped with double sided carpet tape then covered with pieces of brown paper bag.
Then I printed the Grand Opening October 15 sign on a transparency...
And taped it to the plexiglass on the front of the room!
So those were my two displays for the Show!
On the the Sale portion - and what I bought!
My first purchase was from MEE member Rosalle Pinske's Needleart. Rosalle does the most incredible mini crochet work. This frilled doily is a miniature of some that my mother had in our home when I was growing up so HAD to have it.
Hardly the same but I knew it would be perfect in the Victorian era parlour!
From Linda A. who is downsizing:
