The Folsom show, one of my favorites, has come and gone.  But the memories have not.  Can you imagine the challenge trying to set up your booth when right next door Auntie Em is unveiling treasure after treasure and the passers by are exclaiming one after another..."oh MY!"  "Oh I have NEVER seen..."   And once again you have to pop yourself up to the next rung on your ladder, balance with the other foot on the table...for better leverage...and peer over the curtain top.  Quietly.  Gracefully.   Disinterestedly.   Well CAN you imagine?   The vintage buttons the antique quilts the linens. Take a look.
See what i mean....Booth To Live For.
Auntie Em herself.
Even has a rug on the floor...classy vintage.
Auntie Em has a wealth of knowledge to share about all of her quilts.   I have learned a lot seeing as how I not only snoop but eavesdrop as well.   She and Barbara are fun booth neighbors...we have to remind ourselves at times to attend to our customers and tone down the frivolity.   
That's the Folsom report.
Woolbert says hello and wants you to know that soon he will have a free pattern the new 12 block little wool quilt done at last.   I'll try to get it up on the website as soon as we return from the airport in a few days....picking up the Pittsburgh son and the granddaughter.  A three and a half year old in the house again...We are so ready for that!
