    I am going to be in a craft show in Nov, but I need help with what to do. What type of quilt do you think will sell best? Should I do more baby, general or some other kind of quilt? I have never been to a craft show so I don't know. I guess I need a lot of input from those of you that have been to or in a craft show before. Someone help.....
    Thanks!

    In craft shows, people like to buy small things that they can offer as gifts. I would suggest - since this will be in November - to have Christmas theme items such as quilted table runners, quilted mitts, quilted wall-hangings, quilted Christmas sock to hang on the chimney, etc... that kind of things.

    Hope this was helpful..

    Louise is right on. Christmas stuff will sell. You could add a few baby things if you don't charge too much for them, but I think the Christmas stuff is your best bet.

    From my past experience, make things you can give away for gifts if they don't sell. It really depends on what the people are looking for that particular day. It's a hit and miss but you'll have a lot of fun.

    I also suggest small items, like potholders, baby quilts etc.

    Good luck and have fun with it!

    I agree small ornaments, coasters, pot holders, baby hats, bibs, little stuff not alot of money, time or effort. You could always, hang a quilt up and take orders also. I know someone who did that with an afghan and needed to WHIP out 5 by Christmas and they weren't little either. Good luck I hope you make alot of money.
