The annual town market

Yesterday my quilting guild joined app. 150 companies and voluntary organizations, and put up a fabulous stand in the town square. The weather was great, not a cloud in sight, and thousands of people visit the marked during the day.

The stand was double the size of last years stand. Since we celebrate our twenty year anniversary this year, we wanted to make the most of it. And it was a success, the stand was filled with people.

Kari demonstrated free motion quilting, and Merita demonstrated EQ7. This table worked as a "people magnet", and is an important component in our success. The rest of us worked on different techniques such as stitchery, American and English piecing.

Kari worked on a cute quilt with mushrooms. Some of the spectators noticed her quilting gloves, and wondered if we always use gloves when we sew :)

Some of the quilts we displayed.

Last years stand was great looking, but to small with little space to move around inside, which resulted in most of the visitors standing on the outside. This year we emphazised space, which resulted in a stand filled with people. This is actually one of the few moments without many visitors. We sold lots of kits of my chocolad milkingcow and floral design. The money is going to buy thread and fabric for the comforting quilts we make.

Have fun sewing!
