I have taken The Corner Patch on the road this week. With the help of Tracy and Ruth who cut and folded fabric until there was hardly any fabric left in the shop and my ever supportive, much put-upon hubby Glen, who put up with my fretting and changing of my mind, loaded up the van and off we went to Bristol to The West Country Quilt and Textile Show.
Now I’ve done shows before, but never so far from home. A three day show at Uttoxeter has the safety of only being down the road from the shop, so going to Bristol was a bit of a worry, what to take, how much and I think I must have written a hundred lists!
We’ve had a fantastic time!
I’ve met lovely people, the other stall holders have been incredibly supportive and chatted to super customers, we’ve shared our love of fabric and I’ve even been able to give some tips and advice. I’ve also seen some amazing quilts.
Just a taste of some of the incredible talent on show.
A fantastic time, so we might be taking The Corner Patch on the road a bit more, it’s a great way to meet lovely people and see inspirational quilts.
The van’s a little bit lighter ( not very!-Glen) and so we’re homeward bound and then we just have to unload – oh dear!
