The Show

The 3 ½ days of the Craft and Hobby Show flew by in an exciting whirl. So many wonderful people from all over the world popped by to see the gallery of Paper Quilts and to ask questions about what we sold. I had several brief looks around at the booths up stairs. In some ways it was like climbing up the Magic Far Away Tree and visiting a land full of amazing rooms. Each room was decorated with all the beautiful new products they were bringing to the market place this season. Papers, embellishments, books, pens, brushes, ribbons – so many wonderful things. When you think that most buyers visiting the show take the full 3 ½ days to view the show, I know that I only skimmed the surface. I Loved the Anna Griffin store with its beautiful carpet, pale grass green lounge chairs, glass table and chairs and all the most gorgeous new papers and fabrics. 7 Gypsies, Japanese papers, EK Success with the Martha Stewart Range – it was incredible.

I was interviewed by lovely Terri O for web TV and then delightful Joe Rotella - . Joe runs and organizes a Caribbean craft cruise amongst many other things - Hands up for jumping on board in September. I'll put up those links when they are published.

We also met several Aussie comapnies making a big impression OS which was fantastic.
