Val: A day to remember I think; Jennie was busy teaching and I met the boys from Bizview.tv at 8.45 with their entry passes. Hubby was drafted in to cope with selling Jennie’s books on her stand as well as membership to Justhands-on.tv complete with golfing hat – I have to say he did well!! (not sure I’ll get him to do it again, not because he did anything wrong; more about now he knows what he’s in for!!!) Manning a stand is a constant with so many visitors, but I have to say you are all so lovely and you did treat him kindly – including the lady whose credit card he wrecked (I am SO sorry!!!)
The Bizview.tv team and I had a wonderful day filming exhibitions for you to enjoy as well as a few quilts that I just stopped infront of because they spoke to me. We were thrilled to speak to Pauline Ineson who won the P&Q Traditional Quilt category (she had her own little booth there so we stole her away for a few minutes). More info on what we got up to in the newsletter.
Once the show closes we need to drop the stand; load all the unsold goodies into the van (from the Creative Quilting stand that is); and then drive home; long day ontop of the previous 3. Wonder why we do it? Yes we ask ourselves that question too, but we have put next year in the diary already – hope to see you there.
Note the dates for next year: – 11th-14th August 2011
