Virtual Quilt Market takes place this week starting today.
I've been working on my virtual booth.
My virtual booths were pretty lonesome in 2020
so I thought I'd get nostalgic about shopping crowds
and set up a 20th-century department store like Filene's or
Marshall Field's Bargain Basement.
I've got lots to show. New Encyclopedia of Pieced Quilt Patterns
And new Moda repro collection Ladies' Legacy.
I thought I'd sell precuts and kits for the quilt on the wall there.
But yardage would be good too.
I'd need a clerk to cut.
I made the mistake of hiring Harold Lloyd from
his movie Safety Last. He did say he had experience
in the fabric department.
That was in 1923. Almost a hundred years later he still isn't good at customer relations or cutting yardage.
The whole booth turned into a virtual riot
However, some people got books
and computer programs and I did move
The last we saw of the cutting table clerk he was clinging to a clock over Broadway in Los Angeles.
Reminding you that time is passing and you only have till the end of the month to take advantage of a 25% off sale at Electric Quilt.
March Madness over March 31st.
