We just returned from vending at the 2017 Glendale Quilt Guild show and for us, it was a first of many things:
- …the first time vending in California;
- ….the first time vending as Colourwerx and not Linderella’s;
- …and the first time Carl and I vended together as a team without one of us being in the booth and the other in the shop.
All in all, it was fun time and the Glendale Quilt Guild put on a marvelous show with hundreds of quilts on display and several nice exhibits and boutiques. It was held at the Pasadena Convention Center – a somewhat familiar setting for us as this was our home turf some 15 years ago.
Our small, but cozy 10 x 10 booth was an experiment of sorts – seeing whether we could survive with each other in such a small space for longer than 3 hours – I’m happy to report that we did! Here’s a little tour of our booth – a major plus was the nicely patterned carpet at the convention center and tons of natural light!
We brought our inventory of Colourwerx patterns and also added the popular Mini ModDog fabric kits (a hit!), fabric packs for Spikey & ModTV, as well as our new colouricious Kona Cotton bundles (yummmmm!) – a special, curated blend of luscious colours to inpire you. The MOD TV fabric kit was the runaway hit followed closely by the Mini Mod Dog fabric kits! I’m happy to report, as you might have guessed, that these items are also now available in our shop!
Of course, there were many beautiful quilts on display! A few of my favorite quilts from the show were these below – find the title and credit to the quiltmaker when you click on the picture.
All in all I think the weekend went very well – we met many new faces, met up with some old friends and had a great time.
