I took the leap of faith and registered for a booth at the Quilts, Crafts and Sewing Festival. This is something that I have wanted to do for so long, and I am feeling all the things. Scared. Excited. Happy. Nerves. Lots of nerves, but this is part of my goals for 2023, get out more. Make more connections. Continue to build a quilting community in person and online.
I have been busy getting things for my booth (G) to be able to display all the goodies I will be bringing. I think I am in good shape so wish me luck! Send me ideas on things you would like to see and buy in the comments below. Now, let’s dive into the details.
Quilts, Crafts and Sewing Festival
When – January 26th through January 28th 2023
Where – Arizona Exposition & State Fair
1826 West McDowell Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85007
Why – Shopping, fun, and to pet all the beautiful fabrics
What will I have??
I have been cutting up a storm at home in my studio with the hopes of bringing you a great variety of quilt kits (like my Mountain Breeze quilt pattern kitted as show in this blog post), fabric bundles, fabric on the bolt, jelly rolls, wide-back fabric, wool batting, and more. I haven’t decided how I will be selling my individual quilt patterns, but they will be available, and I will have samples of finished quilts I have made of my patterns for you to look at. Some of the quilts will be the same as the quilts kits I will be selling, like Mountain Breeze, but some will have different fabric options.
If you have any advice for my first experience as a quilty vendor at the Quilts, Crafts and Sewing Festival, I would love to hear it!!
I loved your booth. Visited it twice in one day and spent some money. Your fabric was the best. Good job taking a leap of faith. I hope it paid off.
Thank you so much!! That is so nice to hear. I had a great time talking to all of you wonderful quilter!! Thanks for the support!
Have fun. You’ll do great.
Thank you for the vote of confidence. Creating some kits right now!!
