Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair 2014 – A Winner & A Recap
First things first, let’s announce the winner of the rainbow fat quarter giveaway that celebrated my first exhibition show at the Sydney Craft & Quilt Fair 2014. Y’all know I love a rainbow about as much as I love that glitter in your eye, so I’m thrilled to be sending this Molli Sparkles bundle to:
Kacey who blogs at The Little House in Vinecrest Woods
You know what is so awesome about Kacey? She wasn’t a no-reply blogger! Goodness gracious, great balls of fire, Little Richard and I implore you: How To Stop Being a No-Reply Blogger. (Yes. You, sitting there thinking, “Man, I wish I could have won this. I don’t know what the hell Molli is talking about with this no-reply blogger stuff, but this bundle had my name all over it.” Please, click the link!)
Kacey, I’ll be in touch to get your deets! Air kisses, pixie dust, and confetti cannons for your win! Now, as for the show itself … I just, I can’t even. When you walk into a giant exhibition hall and the first thing you see is this:
How do you even respond? If you’re like me, you respond by putting little sparkly, star stickers all over your billboard! Mmm hmmm! If you’re like some others, you respond by saying, “Who the hell is Molli Sparkles?” Oh, and don’t you worry, I let the world know who this piece of fabulousness is!
It took the better part of a day, but between myself, Mr. Sparkles, and my father-in-law (who is forever christened as “K.Spark”) we set up my booth at the front entrance. I showcased fifteen projects in my six-by-seven metre space (twenty-by-twenty-three feet). I also brought along my Juki, my hats, and my glitter collections. I chose to leave the weaves at home because I didn’t want any of the No Chintz ladies across the aisle to decide they needed to let their hair out!
The entire show was fantabulous of course! I spoke to so many engaging individuals, and even had a chance or two to give some Truth Tea to some not so engaging individuals if you catch my drift! (The Molli Sparkles booth is a Quilt Police exclusion zone, thank you very much!) Then one morning on my way to the fair, I was getting ready to walk out the door, last sip of coffee, and what do I see!? Um, the weather girl wrapped in a Molli Sparkles original?! No! It couldn’t be! Yes! Yes, it is! Do you see her teeth chattering? Nope, she is all smiles!
Each floor talk I gave was well attended, with lots of questions and discussion afterwards. If you happened to be there, and have any follow up questions or feedback about them, feel free to drop me a line. I love discussing this stuff, so hit me with it. If you’re wondering, “Am I a member of the Glitterati yet?” Girl, you’re membership card is in the mail! For those that couldn’t be there in person, I made a little three minute video to show off my booth. I hope you enjoy it!
Yes, it really was, WO-WO-WO-WOW! Oh, and if you think this is the tip-toe-tappin’-top of Molli Sparkles: you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. (But, I might just need to take a very short nap first!)
