I love quilt show vendors!!! You get a huge variety of merchandise from a diverse vendor base which results in lotta-loot.
The Mancuso Quilt Show had another wonderful display of fabulous quilts from around the world. I love to see what quilters in other areas of the world create. Their style, supplies, creativity, etc. And this year was just as great. Unfortunately, I left my camera at home and didn’t get to take any pictures! I could, if I wanted to, go back today to address that. But I’m afraid I already spent too much money yesterday and would again today if I got near that place. So I’ll just have to rely upon memory. I also got to see a few friends from my quilting guild–Amoskeag Quilting Guild
But on to the Loot!!
Here’s a few pictures of the books, thread, ribbon, buttons, needles, Duponi silk, and fabric dyeing supplies:
Lotta Loot! Mainly crazy quilting supplies
I also got all my Christmas shopping done for the Bee-girls. But I can’t show you a photo of that as I don’t want to spoil their surprise.
Another score was a needlework frame from Thread Express. It’s a home business in New Gloucester, Maine (about 2 hour drive from here). The frame was designed by Imagesstitcherydesign.com.
Face-on view of needlework frame. Works well either on a table or the two side pieces rest on the outside of my lap. Oh, and here’s my block with some of the spider flowers on it.
And, here a view of the frame from underneath. Just to give you a perspective on how it’s constructed.
Lastly, in the upper right corner is my Needle Minder. It’s attached with a magnet and when I place my needle on top, it stays in place. Now I no longer have to worry if I placed my needle next to me without thinking and where did it go????!
So all in all, I had a fabulous time yesterday. Even though I went all by myself. Next year, I’ll plan it better and a week or more beforehand, I’ll ask the Bee-girls if they want to come too.
