Brisbane Went Off With A Bang!!! Craft and Quilt Fair Felty Fun
Now I really thought I knew what to expect from these shows. I've got quite a few under my belt and even ventured across state borders to attend one. But I never expected what happened in Brisbane. (P.S. once you've finished reading, take a look at the video of all the fun at the bottom of this blog)
We were ready for action, we were ready for fun, we were ready for another brilliant show, but what came next seriously overwhelmed me.
Not one person and I truly mean this, not one person was unhappy. Every single person that stopped by walked past, or viewed us from a distance was just so damn lovely! And the comments on our stand, even on our clothes and appearance were just so beautiful. I was stopped several times every day about my white dress, which made me feel like a princess haha.
Laura and I want to thank everyone who supported our stand. From the bottom of our felt hearts, we are truly blessed to have such amazing customers in our lives. It makes what we do so worth it.
And again to the team from Expertise Events, you are the true winners here. With your hard work, attention to detail and amazing help whenever I needed it, we are very grateful to work with such an amazing team.
Shout out to Judy, Zac, Marianne and Jess, thank you so much for delivering yet another amazing convention and ending the year with the best of shows ever for My Felt Lady.
Next to the lovely lady Lauren Wright from Molly and Mama. Having you on our stand for two days was so damn fun! We will definitely be doing this again that's for sure. Lauren shared her tips and tricks for using the freezer paper method and created some stunning felt flowers. If you want to learn I implore you, please head over to her website Molly and Mama and sign up to her newsletters and sign up to her newsletters and stitch club. You'll absolutely love her work.
And to our Feltastic designers. Fiona Tully from Two Brown Birds, thank you very much for loaning us your samples. We are so excited to have you on board this year and all of your products were a huge hit and a sell out too! If anyone wants to follow Fiona find her here at Two Brown Birds.
Oh, Wendy... Wendy, Wendy, Wendy. Thank you so much for allowing us to showcase your beautiful quilts on our stand again. They are so bright and beautiful that it really was a show stopper, making people come to our stand just to see your beautiful stitchwork. The Birdsville Quilt and Cushion including your Threadbooks were a sell-out! And I thought we made too many kits! Looks like it wasn't enough lol. Follow Wendy here Wendy Williams Flying Fish Kits
Finally Jodie Carlton from Ric Rac. You are our people. Just as vivacious, just as quirky and we loved having your little felt family with us again. They are more travelled than me! Tuesday Sewing Circle including your 'Is For' animal and block series are always popular, but what surprised us most was Frankie and Dee! They sold out on the first day! We will definitely be getting more of these in soon. If you want to keep up with Jodie's quirky fun, check her out here Jodie Carlton Ric Rac
One last thing. To my beautiful girls, my staff. Laura and Nic you really raised the bar this year with all the shows we did, all the felt we rolled, and all the kits we made. So much work goes into preparing for the show and without you, we wouldn't have had one of the biggest shows ever.
Phew, I was able to write all this without breaking into a teary mess lol.
Well, what a feltastic year for shows. We will be back again in 2023 at the following events
