TVQA Assembly Day hosted by the Music City Quilt Guild

What a fun (yet H-O-T day).  Yes, we were inside all day, but the loading and unloading was, well warm work.

So we will focus on the positive!

The Music City Quilt Guild set up a beautiful display of quilts for our viewing pleasure.  Here are just a few:

It was also great that the guild used the PA system in the lobby to allow us vendors to join in the assembly day fun & hear the whole program.  (It was extra nice that we had a minute to prepare for the lunch break before the doors opened too).

Here’s a snapshot of my setup…well part of it.

It was a great day and I even fought off the almost overwhelming urge to stop at JoAnn’s (located on this very interstate exit) on the way home.  I was kinda whooped by that point and ready to prop my feet up.

Thanks Music City Quilt Guild for a great TVQA Assembly Day!

My next adventure…videos

I splurged on a portable webcam this weekend, thinking it would qualify for sales tax exempt, but no, not so much. 

So I am excited to film some tutorials for you.  What do you want to see?

And the sale starts to draw to a close

As I said in a post earlier this week, most vendors honor the Sabbath & break down “camp” on Saturday.

It’s a sign that the week has been long, the times fun & the week over.

So long, World’s Longest Yard Sale.  Until we meet again next year.

Last day of 10 @ 50! 10 fabrics, 50% off

Thanks to you all for your support this week during 10 @ 50 and while we have been so scarce in our online world!

Most of the activity for the World’s Longest Yard Sale wraps up today, as Sunday in the South, is, well, Sunday.

We have had a great week meeting folks from all over.  So far, our “travelled the farthest” is from California.

 

So, back to today’s 10 fabrics!
These 2 collections from Blank Quilting, Contessa Court & Duquesa II are just beautiful!

The World’s Longest Yard Sale begins

Yes, officially the 127 sale doesn’t start until Thursday, but you know, it takes a while to get all the goodies set up.

DSCN3720

It looks like it’s going to be another hot one this week, so it’s good to take your time and spread the set up over a couple days.

I sold a couple coke bottles today, so I feel a DQ dipped cone in my near future!
