And of course the books!
|Me right after my school house feeling very relieved. AmyLouWho made my skirt AGAIN! LOVE YA AMY!|
I did a schoolhouse on how to market your Simply Color Books in your store. (thank you Amy for my skirt!!) They are a wonderful key of information on how to use the color wheel and how to empower your customer in learning how to pick fabric on their own. I'll be doing a whole blog post on this here, the store owners were very excited to hear how this book not only has 6-7 projects in each book, but it also has beautiful photography, AND it's a great teaching tool for the customers needing a little help in understanding why certain colors go better together than others.
But not everything is work and work and work at market.

and the horns came out. Kidding Vanessa and I had a lovely time being next to each other talking about how we were the only Vanessa's we knew growing up, and how our mom's came up with our names and such…by day 3 we actually got used to hearing our name and not both thinking it was us they were talking to. Not really we were not used to it but it was fun. :) I wouldn't mind being next to her again.
Anna of Noodlehead. (this is her beautiful booth) she was debuting her book and her new fabric collection with Cloud 9 fabrics.
I also got to room with Amy of Diary of a Quilter, and Amanda of Crazy Mom Quilts.
|Butterfly kisses coming soon to the shop.|
I can't wait to show you. :)
