I took closer photos of some of the quilts on exhibit. Someday I want to grow up to be a quilter like these quilters - amazing!!
We got everything packed, some of it shipped and are ready to head for home. See you in the shop on Tuesday and Wednesday, then I'm off on vacation with my hubby!
I posted some more photos on facebook too! Thanks for all the great comments there! Keep 6/11 (Saturday) open for a special event at the shop. You won't want to miss it!

Anyone recognize this guy???
Or how about this guy?
I will post the rest of the photos from today on Facebook. Remember, you don't have to have a Facebook account to see any of the content on Crafty Threads Facebook page!!
If you can't quite tell what is in a photo - don't worry, we are planning an "after market" review in the shop. We will showcase samples of some of the FANTASTIC things we've purchased at market. So far, we have only seen about half the booths, so tons of more walking tomorrow.
I mentioned on the video that I thought the aisles started at 700 or 800 with 2800 being the last aisle - well, I was wrong - it starts at 100!!!! That means 28 aisles of vendor booths - Woo Hoo!!!!
Gotta go rest up for tomorrow!
Miss you all, but we are having a BLAST!

I'll be at the show on Saturday morning for a few hours and at the shop the rest of the time. Stop by the show, see some wonderful quilts, meet some unique vendors, and maybe win a doorprize!
We had a celebrity in the store last week. I was back in the office working when Brenda came bouncing back there, breathless, saying something about Isabella and wool and TV and OH MY GOSH, you have to come out here!!!
Long story short, Isabella Hoffman was in the store. She is the author of a book about felting wool and Brenda had seen her on a "Sewing with Nancy" episode. "Bella" is a character!!
Her work is gorgeous (come see a sample in the shop) and she will be back in a couple of months to teach at the store. She loves "Woolylady" wool and that is how she found the shop - we are the only shop in Florida that carries Woolylady wool!
The winner from the comments on last weeks blog is Holly Heheheheh! Congrats and we will see you in the shop soon!
I love reading all the comments! Thanks to everyone who wrote.

I will entice you to comment on the blog again this week - maybe no one really wanted a calendar?? Let's see if we can get more than 6 comments this week... How about a fat quarter pack? How about a pack of 8 color coordinated fat quarters? Anyone want to comment now?? I will count any and all comments left up until 12:01 a.m. Saturday morning... Good luck and I can't wait to read all the comments!
Until next time, hug and stitches,

I know, I’m 10 days late, but better late than never!
Crafty Threads has been open 4 months. Sometimes it feels like just yesterday and sometimes it feels like 5 years.
We try to take pictures of things happening at the shop and I have collected quite a few photos since we opened. They take up a lot of room in the newsletter, so I have decided to start this blog to share photos with you. I will ramble on about various and sundry topics but I’ll try to keep them related to the shop, or quilting, or the weather…
There are those out in blogger land that write something EVERY day – some even write several times a day. Well, my goal is weekly… I’m not promising – just making it a goal!!
To gauge the readership of the blog, I’m going to blatantly bribe you!! Leave a comment letting me know you read this post and you will be entered to win a prize. What’s the prize? How about a 2011 “She’s Sew Silly” Calendar?
Until next time,
Hugs and Stitches,
