    So happy that your craft festival was successful. I was in a craft festival this weekend, too. I had a lot of fun and was successful, too. I got to meet & talk with lots of quilters. By the way...your quilts are beautiful.

Actually very little for my labor, but on the orders I took, I explained that it could be up to six months before delivery - half down, balance on delivery. Since I have never sold any quilts or taken orders, I really didn't know what would be the best way, but with half down, if they don't pick up the quilt, I will still have had the fabrics paid for. Does this make sense?
    Very smart!

Financially, it was so much more successful than I expected. My daughters and I are looking forward to attending more craft shows next year! The photo was taken late yesterday afternoon, we were really pooped. These are my two daughters that I love and appreciate so much, could not have handled this weekend without myolder daughter, Paige, on the left. She climbed ladders and carried lots heavy stuff.
    I love your 'Woodlands Creatures" quilt, made one several years ago and it hangs in my living room, it is my all-time favorite and I don't think any amount of money could separate me from that quilt, it will stay in my family. Oh, and it owns a purple ribbon.

    I would like to see photos of your set-up ragamuffin. I have often thought of doing a craft fair but am unsure of how to set-up and transport. The "U" shape sounds like a good plan.
