    Wish it were closer...we'd love to attend
    A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort :lol:

    There was one here in VA a month ago. We always go, and the only thing I do is sit there and watch the quilts sell. Love it!

    I love going... but have missed the past two years...
    Be sure to get some of the pepper nuts... a traditional Mennonite cookie and the Russian Pancake booth and Wedding

    Jacquie, it was SO much fun to meet you I was bowled over when I went to pay for my item and realized it was YOU running that booth! And I can't believe the bargain I got - a 1950s PINK TORPEDO Singer buttonholer. Certainly made my day! I finally had to go home because the smells from all that wonderful cooking was driving me crazy and making me starve, but the lines were so long that I didn't want to wait.

    I was amazed at the fabric and patterns you were putting out for sale. And when I get a little further into restoring these vintage machines, I'll be calling you for parts. I'm hoping to make it back out this morning to watch the auction for the quilts. And you are right..that little Dressmaker was sweeeet! Wonder what she will go for. Hmmmmm.... that might be an auction to watch, too.

    Don't work too hard today, and once again, it was SO great to meet you!!

    OH I so wish you could have made it...I sadly can not eat most of the food there, just CHEESE..and kettle corn...hehehe.....ALL of the booths did really well last night...on my way out the door right now to go back and work some more..and hopefully get some of the vintage blocks I had my eye on last night!

    I do not belong to any church here. Just that this group of people play a special role in my life and I feel honored to be able to help them out in any way I can!

    Okay..I'm dying to know... what did the Dressmaker sell for? And did you get the quilts? Which one won People's Choice? And how much did it sell for? LOL Can you tell I didn't make it back out there? I loved that bargello in the round, but was disappointed in the center of it. They had appliqued a circle in it, and it was barely stitched down. Otherwise, that was my favorite! DD loved the batik with the fabulous hand quilting... such tiny, even stitches! Some pretty fabulous quilts there, for sure.
