Today is the last day of the quilt show. The time has flown by. I thought you might like to see what the convention floor looked like before the show started. AQS provided 2 days for set up, so it wasn't that crazy busy when we arrived for set up on the second day.
We arrived in Daytona on Monday. It took us about 8 hours to drive from Key West including assorted stops. This state of Florida is long! Tuesday we headed to the convention center to set up the Curvalicious booth (#1507). This is my 3rd show, so booth set up is pretty smooth with a few tweaks for either new patterns, kits or quilts.
It's exciting to see the convention floor with unpacked boxes and pallets full of quilting goodies.
They were still hanging competition quilts.
There was a teachers' meeting before the show started. I was sooooo excited to be a member of this group. I felt a little star struck to be in a room with Gina Perkes, David Taylor, Karen Stone and Leni Levinson Weiner. We were even given a box of Winderfil thread. You can see I already removed 2 spools to share with my class.
The show has been awesome. The Daytona quilters were numerous. Many watched my demo and they loved Curvalicious. I sold out on Friday. My classes went well. I couldn't ask for anything more.
Now I'm ready to head North to sleep in my own bed. It's been 2 1/2 months.
