Well, we forgot to sign up for a booth rental for Quilt Market in Portland but I had an idea. No where in the Quilt Market rules do I see a prohibition on parade floats. So here's the plan for a virtual floating booth that we can ride up and down the aisles throwing out Tootsie Rolls as we float by.
We looked at a lot of vintage photos for ideas. What would get our point across---we sell quilt patterns in our Etsy shop. Sunflower Pattern Co-operative.
Floral concoctions probably not a good choice.
Flowers would droop by Saturday afternoon.
or Friday night.
Sunflower wheels? Get it? Horse probably a bad choice.
Self-propelled might be better.
Civil War theme? We do sell a lot of Civil War repro patterns.
Here it is!
Based on a float from the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union.
We'll be up all night with papier-mâché and trying to keep the machine threaded.
Look for us in the virtual aisles all weekend.
