Brisbane Craft and Quilt Show 2013 Wrap Up

Even though it has been more than a week since the Brisbane Quilt and Craft Show finished for 2013 I thought it was still soon enough to do a quick photo essay for everyone who couldn't make it.
We packed as much fabric, patterns and bag hardware as possible into our little 2 x 4m space.
Across the aisle from our stand we had a space where Steph from Cake Patterns demoed sewing her patterns with knit fabrics for the 5 days of the show.

She made up a cute little 1" Yellow Striped Cabarita Top (beautifully modelled here by Cloud) and a 1"Red Striped Tiramisu Dress, both using our high quality Riley Blake Cotton Jersey Knit fabrics. You can read about Steph's Tiramisu dress here.

We don't get much of a chance to look around during the show but we couldn't go past these amazing quilts by Judy Coates Perez without stopping for a look each day.
I thought this underwater scene was incredible, just check out the detail on the squid. Cloud's favourite was the bunny :)

For the last two years we have been sponsoring prizes for the Queensland Quilters Quilt Show which is displayed at the Craft and Quilt Fair every October. This year we were the sponsors for first prize for the Primary and Secondary Categories.

What takes an entire day to set up is pulled down and packed up in less than 2 hours. Then it is back to the showroom to unpack, stocktake, restock and setup the showroom. Whew, no wonder we are a bit tired for the week afterwards.

An exhausting week but well worth it, it is always great to meet with all of our old customers and well as new ones discovering us for the first time.
