Prairie Pride Harvest Market 2007
This past Labor Day weekend I participated in a local Harvest Festival.The owner/promoter of the festival has a very lush farm setting with flowering grounds and a great rustic barn with a large porch.She had the local conservation club selling food and a husband/wife team of strolling folk musicians. I was lucky enough to get a porch space last year due to a vendor cancellation. I snagged a different spot on the porch this year.(See pics from both years) All in all it is a quaint and charming experience. This year I added Vintage Aprons to my list of wares.I also sold organic produce,(tomatos,peppers garlic) natural salsa,designer fabric remnants, hand-dyed muslin, hosta,lemon balm, catnip and hollyhock starts and seeds as well as fresh cut flowers. For some reason its taken me 2 days get back to feeling like my usual self. I guess every ounce of energy I had was spent preparing for the festival... Oh! and cleaning and organizing my studio for the Local Newspaper to come and interview me about my LongArm Quilting business...The photographer has already been here...the interviewer cancelled on my last week and is going to show up today.. (We will see!!!!!!!)
I love connecting with other creative people!I am a Sales Rep for APQS Long-Arm Quilting Machines as well as run a Quilting Business which enables me to help people finish their quilt tops.My primary focus is fiber and I enjoy all aspects of it.Quilt history and Art quilts are another interest of mine along with collecting antique and vintage quilt parts.I live with 4 cats, 3 dogs,8 chickens and my Husband who is a Godzilla/gamer/Theater geek.We live on a small farm and enjoy riding our motorcycles as much as we can in the warmer months......even though we should be mowing or gardening!
