Arizona Weather is Beautiful

We are still in Phoenix, Arizona at the Quilt, Craft and Sewing Festival. The sunny warm weather is just fabulous. All the shoppers from Minnesota, Wisconsin and places with cold weather have nothing but smiles on their faces. We do too. The next show is the Rocky Mountain Expo in Denver, Colorado so we need to soak up as much warm sunshine as we can while we are here!

Our big old motor home had a tire issue discovered while we were at set up in the fairgrounds. It spent 2 days at the RV fix-it place and we spent 2 days at the Crowne Plaza. A lovely hotel – they love our pooches. Campbell wanted to swim in their pool with a waterfall but no luck. The very good furry girls spent the show day in the booth yesterday each under their own table on special quilted beds provided by our friendly fellow vendors. We were so surprised at how perfectly they behaved….something that wouldn’t happen a few years ago. Then the tables would have been dragged all over the place as they had some fun zooming around the building visiting. Guess we are all getting older!

The show has been very busy with the big seller our Sisters Are Angels RedWork design. Guess lots of sisters are here thinking of their family. We will see what is popular today, our last day of the show….it is always fun to see what is the biggie design of the day.

Enjoy your time in the sun – we are!

  1. I visited your booth at the Phoenix Show many times and then finally made my purchase the last day as I was with one of the "other" sewing machine vendors. I truly loved your booth and everything in it.. I have been stitchn' ever since and loving every minute of it. I know that the shows are a lot of fun, but I know that it is a lot of work too, I want to thank you all for such darling kits, patterns and ideas. I loved every little bit of it. I am now off to visit your site and purchase the "Rubber Ducky" as you were out of them so here I go again, purchasing more!!!!! Thanks again. Patti
