Laura Folk Fair
On the 5th and 6th of April we were up at Laura trading at the 2014 Laura Folk Fair. It is one of our favourite events, only a couple hours drive from home. It gives us a chance to catch up with some of our regular customers, meet new people and share time with other crafters as we come together for this annual event. For our internet customers it gives them the chance to meet us in person and see what is new (sometimes it is nice to touch the fabrics before you buy them) and I can collect some feedback on possible new projects, what they are looking for and catch up on some social chit chat. It is a lot of work but really enjoyable. You can see our stall all set up ready for trading above. The weather was beautiful and sunny but not too hot as there was a slight breeze.

Our Kids Strip Quilts were featured for this event and the Tractor Time Quilt was the most popular out of the four we had for sale.
My hexagon flowers quilt and my log cabin quilts were eye candy for the batik fabric fans there. It is always good to show everyone what can be achieved with batik fabrics. The hexagon flower quilt will be available in a pattern format soon.
The street on Sunday morning as we prepare for trading. When the event gets going you can't see any of the stalls for all the people in the street. With all the craft stalls, food, amusement rides and the variety of music entertainment. It is a huge event.
Now we have two weeks to prepare for the Angaston Easter Craft Fair on Easter Saturday in Angaston.
Until next time
