Last week I sat a shift at the Columbia FiberArts Guild booth at the NorthWest Quilting Expo. It was tricked out pretty nice! This is a pic of Sara – we were sharing a shift. 2 hours went by at a gallop – we talked non-stop.
Quite a few people approached us, signed up for emails, took business cards etc. I think many were grabbed by the artwork and wearables we displayed.
The best part of volunteering for booth sitting is all the people you get to meet. As if you couldn’t tell you were at a quilt show! Here’s a general sweeping statement: we are all of an age and some of us tend to wear what I call ‘quilty’ clothes. My husband, lugubriously calls us the ‘blue jumper crowd’. Not quite sure why but I think it probably tells me something….?
