I had a bit of art (postcards & threadpaintings) for sale in the corner of the booth, and a larger wall with Postcards supplies and embellishments. My girl sold her handcrafted earrings and my youngest boy sold repurposed leather work. THEY did awesome too. We have never done allowance with our children. Chores are household responsibilities (I don't get paid for them, so why should they!? haha). They sure feel good with all the positive responses to their creations, and with their piggy banks filling after sales events like this. I see through the week too, how they enjoy making up more stock in anticipation of the event. Even though there were the occasional 'child labour' jokes, I'm proud of them. They feel entirely industrious, so I think it's all good.
I took a lot of cell phone photos and put them on Instagram - which is why they have those funny oldschool filtering effects. They aren't the best images, but they do hold great memories.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by the booth and signed up for classes! That's great. Thanks also for all the 'I LOVE YOUR BLOG' comments. I have some guilt over that one since you know I only blog a couple times a week now. (Insert guilty face.) Still, it was so great to see so many familiar faces. There was a lot of hugging and giggles. : )

There were some VERY cool and ingenious quilts in the show. Some were more traditional but the modern fabrics just kick it. ; ) I was situated by the mini quilt wall which was full of gems. I wish I had snapped more pictures. Check out SaskatoonMQG on Instagram if you would like to see more. They also have a Facebook page.
There were no competitions or viewer's choice ballots, though my kids went though and made their own choices.
I'm so glad to have been a part of it! Congratulations SMQG. Thanks for letting us join you. *Whoop whoop - I even sold a few of my Prairie Modern postcards. Sweet.
