A great display at Sydney Craft and Quilt Fair!
Following our success at the "Horizons" exhibition at Crows Nest we were fairly confident the craft show visitors would love all the kids work, and we were right !!
Everyone was so complimentary about the quality of the display, and we could have sold the elephant hangings from Lismore 10 times over. The only down side was having to explain to every 2nd person stopping by that we weren't visiting from Young, NSW.
It seems no-one was looking past the Young Textile and Fibre Group name, and ignoring our prominent sign that said "Boys and Girls 5-18 years" on the back wall.
We gave out lots of information about both the Distance Course and face-to-face clubs. On Saturday and Sunday we also gave away small project kits for the Birthday Stitch Cards as we weren't able to run the Flash Mob Stitch-In due to our position on a major aisle. A minor inconvenience which we did not allow to spoil our otherwise fabulous 5 day show. More photos below.
