Ok....I know I said I would give you a behind the scenes of the Reno Sewing Expo...but it came and went and I forgot to take photos---SO Really, I promise---Next show I will write it on my hand...or forehead or something!!
So, for now you get the quick and condensed version---Most shows we go to charge each vendor between $75-$115 for the use of their electrical....so I decided to buy a solar battery and give it a try...
My first Question of the morning 5:30am (definitely wasn't a girlscout--)...how does the plug of my cash register fit in here???? When I could finally get ahold of a real person it is a universal plug it just goes in sideways (learn something everyday!!)...For those vendors looking for an alternative...This worked fabulous-----I highly recommend it- www.goalzero.com (you can take it camping too!)
Next we loaded and packed 2 trucks....once piled high with goods, we have to climb on top with the spiderman netting (its pretty entertaining)!
Tuesday Judy and I spent the day hanging quilts for the Fabric-Chicks Exhibits, The Creative Crones Display, The Sierra to Sage Shop Hop Display and the Chairitable Affair Challenge display...and the Winners are
1st place- Donna Greenwald 2nd Place- Janet Lockett 3rd-Barbara Harmon
Wednesday we set up our booth and Thursday, Friday and Saturday the show was open to the public....I am really sorry I don't have photos of the show as it was a FABULOUS show. Most have commented that they really needed two days to be able to see all the Vendors, Displays, Make and Takes, and Free Venues (not to mention all the classes!) So mark your calenders now for next year!
The show closed each night at 5 and I rushed to Devons games that started at 5...Baseball every night after the show---I was exhausted!!!
This is Devon--Living it up after a hard day of helping run the cash register at the show-Short Stop at the All Stars game...Whats better than Room service and Marathon night of Duck Dynasty?????What more could a 9 year old ask for????
