Back home from the Rockport Quilt Show

Wow what a weekend.  Set-up for the show was on Friday evening.  The show is held at the High School so set-up can't begin until after school is out for the day.  We were allowed to start setting up around 6:00 pm.  The quilts had not even been hung yet.  Everything went smoothly though.

Saturday morning I arrived a little early to make sure I had everything ready.  Man, am I glad that I did.  When they opened the doors at 10:00 am it was a madhouse.  I don't think I have ever seen that many people at a small local show before.  It was great.  We were busy all day long.  Sunday was good too.

This was my first time to do this show.  I had a lot of fun and it was a great show!!!  This show is held every other year on even years and the Corpus Christi show is held every other year on the odd years.  I am looking forward to doing this show again in 2012.  If you have never been to either of these shows, please make plans to attend in the future.

Next week there should be pictures of the show posted at Piecemakers by the Bay website.  Check it out!!!
