We had a fun time with Elsie and Donna of Donna's Yarn & Craft who were set-up next to us. They also have a large collection of our handcrafted shawl pins, beads, buttons and other wearable accessories in their store.
There were, of course, a lot of fabulous quilts at the show, some of which were real masterpieces.
This was a special quilt challenge using a specific fabric to create something unique. The pieces were incredible with everything from wall hangings and bags to even a bird house!
And of course Heather's Fabric Shelf was filled with customers waiting for an exciting moment to happen in their store -- the unveiling of a new fabric line by a Canadian company, Cantik Batiks.
This is Heather of Heather's Fabric Shelf, along with Kevin (manager) and Shania (the designer) of Cantik Batiks ready to unveil the new fabric line designed especially for Heather's store and this show which is based on some photos taken of Kamloops scenery.
And now the exciting news: Heather commissioned us to create a special button for this fabric and event. She also created a handbag pattern incorporating our "Kamloops" button.
And here are a few of the buttons:
And the buttons shown on several bags:
And finally, this is Heather and Bill and their adorable little store mascot/boss. They were too busy that day to get a picture of the two of them together and since I love this photo, I stole it off their facebook page. They are an awesome couple and they did a wonderful job on the quilt show and is a real pleasure to be a part of this event and a real honor to have our handcrafted items in their store.
