    Smile Creative Festival purchases

    The Creative Festival is being held this weekend in Toronto, so of course, I just had to go on the first day. Check out my buys! The fat quarter bundle in the front of the picture is Kaffe Fasset's fall 2012 collection- it just jumped into my bag- after I paid for it of course. I could have spent so much more money but had to put an elastic band on my wallet, LOL. Oh the inspiration! I bought a wool applique kit to try out the technique too, never done that kind of handwork before. I replaced my Gingher thread snips that dissappeared somewhere, a few patterns, a Fons and Porter design wall, 2 Rapid Fire rulers, a small tumbler die for my GO, 2 other interesting fat quarter bundles and some odds and ends too. Had a great day, and my DH was glad that I spent some money on myself. Nice man!

    looks like you got some cool stuff. My husband bought me those same snips at the show i went to on thursday, and he thought of it all by himself, just because he heard me use the word snips a couple of days before. How happy am I that he actually listens to me? ;-)

    ​On my Ipad I can enlarge your pictures. Looks like you got a new pattern for Twister, the add a quarter ruler, ruler for Lemoyne Star and the Rapid Fire Hunter's Star pattern. You have some very nice bundles of fabric too. Nice haul!

    My first thought was, "What kool stuff". Let us know how you like the rulers. I am thinking about getting them myself. BrendaK

    You are going to have fun with the Twister book and even more fun with Deb Tucker's Hunter Star.

    A nice lot of goodies! My friend & I usually go but not this year...we're heading to Lancaster, PA on Monday. Maybe we'll go to the spring Creative Festival. Glad you had fun. I love working with wool so I hope you enjoy the kit!

    I am so jealous of that little packet of fat quarters in the center - the colors look wonderful.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Lots of great stuff here!!! There is so much to be tempted by at these shows. I'm taking a rapid fire hunter's star class on Saturday - in fact, I should be cutting for it right now

    I was there too and saw a lot of eye candy but I practised great restraint as I have promised to buy ONLY what is necessary to finish a project. I really need to make the stash much smaller. I did buy two balls of yarn for scarves. Paid more to get in than what i spent. That has never happened before. NEVER!

    Looks like you did well. I'm going to the Georgia Quilt Show this weekend and I'm so looking forward to it. Question - are the Deb Tucker rulers cheaper at a show than from a retailer?

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Rapid Fire Lemoyne Star ruler! I have made lots and lots of stars for several quilts, walllhangings and table runners. The ruler is so accurate, it's just a pleasure to sew! I hope you like it as we'll as I do!

    This festival is on my bucket list but because of the distance involved - I live almost 500 miles away - it will take some planning on my part. Looks like you had fun & nice haul. Maybe next year! They tell me that the one in the fall is a bit better than the one they hold in the spring - is that right ?? Would love to hear your input from the festival.

    Maybe if I had been with you some of those fun things might have had to come home with me

    I bought the rulers from a quilt shop display, so it likely was the same price as in the store. I didn't really check the price on them, I knew I wanted them so home they came.
