I've only done this once before--years ago--in honor of my grandmother's birthday at her assisted living place. When I visited her every weekend, and bring the latest fabric or project, she'd always say "Oh the ladies here would love to see this..." So--I took all the wall hangings in the house down, striped the quilts from the couches and beds and hauled them to her place to give them a quilt show. :D
Now I'm doing in again--at a different place (Gram died in 2005)--actually the place that brings a bus load to see the horses. When the residents were here for horses--and I told them I'd see them soon--they asked if they could buy the quilts. That was never my intention and I didn't even know if it'd be allowed, but the activities director said it's fine--if I'll take checks. (Fine with me.)
They called today to ask about set-up. I asked for 2-3 tables. Since selling is okay--I thought I'd keep what's for sale on one table to avoid confusion (mainly mine).
So--all I have planned so far is to take every quilted item in the house--including the tops for the last three quilts...and just talk to them and hold stuff up for them to see. My husband (6'3"--that will come in handy :wink: ) and my daughter are going to help.
Any suggestions before I venture off? I will not have time to make anything more--we've got a kayak trip planned for tomorrow morning and the rest of the time will be packing to go. (I dread the unpacking and getting all these wall hangings back up!)
Should be fun...
