Spring Creativ Festival

Went down to the Spring Creativ Festival on Saturday. It's farther out than the fall festival which is downtown and way smaller. Still, I went because I'm in the market for a sewing machine and the shows are a great place to shop for one. Not only are all the dealers and brands right there under one roof they have some great show specials so its more likely to get a good deal on your machine. Anyway, more on that in another post. For now here are some pictures from the festival.

This is our booth - Sew Sisters Quilt Shop. Sometimes I still can't believe I work here! Before we moved to Toronto I googled "quilt shops in Toronto" and they were one of the first to show up. I subscribed to the newsletter, followed the blog, looked at their website and told myself I would visit if I moved. And then I moved.

I volunteered at the festival in the Fall and I remember walking through the shop floor looking for the booth and when I saw that familiar banner I smiled. :) I was actually half way across the world and staring at the store I had looked up 4 months ago.

I then went to the York Heritage Quilters Guild show and bought my first fat quarters from them at the booth. I chatted with Judy a little.

Later in January I wrote to Judy and said I was looking for work. Went to the interview the same week and now I work for Sew Sisters Quilt Shop and love it! I sometimes have to remind myself of how amazing this all is! :) Anyway... so here's our booth and it was mighty busy!

Here are some of the other booths. 

I was really impressed with the Sashiko. The stitches were so beautiful!
Really liked the display in this booth. Lovely colour palette.
