    my craft booth items for 2011

    before the big CHANGE, several of us were posting our things we were making for the craft bazaars/shows this year.

Size:  130.9 KBThere were made from Vintage German muffin tins! As they contained ZINC, it was best to make sure they could not be baked in, so they got a NEW life!

Size:  118.0 KBThese are "designer" pattern weights! Great for holding down templates while you trace around them, holding paper while your draw/trace, you name it!

Size:  152.3 KBThese are binding spools that your wind your binding onto after you press it! Makes it easier to get it on the quilt without it twisting up!

Size:  148.5 KBThese are the sewing machine magnets I designed/drew up and DH cut out on the scroll saw for me! I then could personalize them! Kids loved being able to buy something for Granny, or mom!

Size:  132.2 KBThese were quilt kits in a jar! The only thing I could not fit in was the batting and the time to make the runner..hehheh...these sold out fast! They got the batting, it was just in a bag and not in the jar!
    I had a fairly good year, but NOT at all like past years!

    Jacquie, your craft and/or quilting items are awesome. I especially love the weights and the binding spools. I am glad that you had a decent year and hope 2012 is much better for you.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Jacquie, I would have loved to have had you at the bazzar here. It is huge, but there wasn't much different or fun. I really like your items. Do you ever sell your stuff through the quiltingboard, like the magnets and the weights and such?

    Love your ideas---the quilt in a jar, magnets, binding rollers (I usually just put mine on toilet paper cardboard rolls), etc.

    btw, I'm also loving the books and Marti templates I purchased from you!

    Have a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
    If no one ever experimented we'd all still be making 4 patches.

    Those quilt kits in a jar are so appealing! What a fun gift that would be for anybody!! Presentation and packaging are such a draw. The idea of the kit being in a jar is delightful, and your labels are so professional!

    what a great idea to sell things that would appeal to other crafters!! They are always a large part of the craft show crowd.

    Great gift items, I know they were a hit at the shows.
    With quilters for friends, I will always be warm.
