  • AQS Paducah 2019- The Quilts

    So… of course I’d like to show you some of the beautiful quilts on display at the AQS Spring Quiltweek at Paducah, KY, but here’s the deal… It’s kinda late in the “show season”, and even though I’m relatively certain that most of the attendees at this show had never seen many of the quilts […]

  • AQS Paducah 2019: One More Try!

    So… you might remember from a previous post that we were NOT very happy with the results from our 2018 AQS Paducah show… so much so that we asked to be moved to the Expo Hall for 2019. So when we found out in November that there would indeed be room for us in that […]

  • My Favorite Things from MAQF 2019

    So… of course I’d like to show you some of the beautiful quilts on display at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival, but here’s the deal… It’s kinda late in the “show season”, and even though I’m relatively certain that most of the attendees at this show had never seen many of the quilts on display at […]

  • Our Take on the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival 2019

    So… considering how happy we were with the way our new booth setup looked AND functioned at Road to California in January, you might be wondering why we would even consider changing it up? And you know what? You’d be SO RIGHT because we absolutely didn’t want to change ANYTHING about our Road2Ca booth setup! […]

  • My Favorite Quilts from Road2Ca 2019

    And now… it’s time for my favorite post from the 2019 Road to California Quilter’s Conference! That’s because now is the time to show you the quilts that were MY personal favorites at the show! But first I want to emphasize that I am NOT presenting myself as a quilting expert! As a matter of […]

  • This Year’s “Road” Show

    So… with this year’s Road to California show in the books, its time to let you know how it went, and to be honest  we can sum up the entirety of the show in one single word, and that would be… AWESOME… totally AWESOME! First of all, when we walked into the Convention Center on […]

  • NEW for Road to California 2019!

    So…. we’ve got some BIG changes coming up for the 2019 Road to California Quilter’s Conference this month! Now I know you’re probably thinking… “Why on earth would you change anything about your booth after how FANTASTIC the shows in Houston were in November?”  And you know what? Normally I’d say you were right, we […]

  • Our New POS System

    So… forgetting to bring my iPad to the AQS Virginia Beach show revealed a serious flaw in our POS (point of sale) system… that being, that we had absolutely NO backup for our checkout procedure, which is pretty darned serious if you think about it! That’s because at least half of our sales at a […]

  • Freight Woes & a Possible Solution (I hope!)

    So… it’s that time of year again! It’s time to figure out a way to get all of our freight to Ontario, California for the Road to California Quilter’s Showcase! Actually… I started working on getting our freight to California just before Thanksgiving, because here’s the deal… whether we’re shipping to Houston or to Ontario, […]

  • Our Goals for 2019

    So… in a recent post , I told you about some of the things that worked well for us in 2018, as well as some of the things that didn’t quite go as I had hoped. And now, with our 2018 assessment completed, I’m ready to talk a bit about our goals for the new […]
