Periwinkle Goes to Moose Jaw

Well it would appear that I'm not quite as punctual about blog writing as I'd hoped to be.  I'm going to blame the learning curve or I should say the many learning curves that I'm experiencing while learning to run a quilt shop.  Time has been at a premium!  But here I am.

Jennifer and I have just returned from the Moose Jaw Prairie Heart Quilters Guild's Biennial Show.    It was my first time organizing and putting up a Periwinkle booth.  Lots of things to remember.  With Jennifer's help we didn't forget much for the actual booth.  But there were a few items that will hit the "to bring next time" list.  A dolly and a ladder are at the top of the list.  Below is a picture of our booth "before".

We were very thankful for Heather and Lesli of Quilter's Haven in Moose Jaw.  They were in the neighboring booth to ours and very kindly suggested we use their dolly and ladder.  We also met other quilt shop owners from Manitoba, Alberta and Saskatchewan.  Quilters are a great group of people and these shop owners were no exception.  Generous with thoughts and experiences. 
And here is the "after" photo of our booth.  Quilts do so much to cheer a space up.   Once our booth was together, we had time to go downtown to do a little shopping ourselves.  Moose Jaw is one of my favorite cities.  So many great shops and restaurants. 

Show time Friday and Saturday flew by.  We met many quilters from near and far.  Had a few good laughs too.  It was a wonderful weekend!  And it was an amazing show with lots of beautiful quilts.  Talented group of quilters in Moose Jaw and area.  Thank you Moose Jaw Prairie Hearts Quilters Guild!  You sure know how to treat your vendors well and put on a spectacular quilt show.



  1. Thank you so much, we were glad you came, and next time is only 2 years away, so let's start planning!
