festival of quilts

From this Wednesday, until Sunday I shall be on stand S10 at the Festival of Quilts, at the NEC, Birmingham.
I'm doing workshop/demos for the Sizzix big shot machine, so pop along and give me a wave. Lauli Pops is also going to repping Sizzix, most likely on the Cotton Patch stand (that's a big stand B21/25 and C19/21). Tula Pink will be in that general area too, signing books and hanging out and saying hi to people. Go and say hi to her, it's her first time over here, and the lack of air conditioning in the NEC is going to make her cranky.






Alice from Backstitch will be on G6 (the stand, not a jet. She's not pulling in that much money from selling fabric)
Aurifil is on G10
Trudi from Quilting Prolifically will be hanging out on the New English Quilter stand B36
Oakshott are H25

If you are going to be at Festival, then come and say hi to me - I might look frazzled, I'm doing 7 workshops each day. Yikes.

Thanks for the info. Make sure you eat and drink in between workshops to keep your energy levels up. Hope it all goes well !

I'll try and come over if I can- I'll be there on Thursday after I finish work at 10am and I'm hoping for some kind of merit for my quilt entry :)

Seven? SEVEN?!! Are you mad?!! Good luck - I hope you're taking plenty of jelly babies to keep you going!

Nadine said...

Yay. can't wait. Will pop over and say hi on Friday. Lots and lots of coffee should keep you standing. At least you can be sure you'll sleep like a log each night. ... I sure hope Tula will bring her gorgeous fabrics. I was hoping to find some at the FoQ.

Sam said...

Awesome! I'm going to come and get your autograph ;-)

Laura said...

7 *a day*?? Good grief! Sounds like everyone coming to say hello should bring some kind of restorative tonic.

I'm there on Friday, although as I am horrifically shy, I will probably be the one grinning nervously, saying "I love your blog" then running away...

Only 7?

Trudi said...

See you there! but really, are you sure you can't fit just one more a day in? Lol. I'll be sure to come check on you :)

Isisjem said...

Only seven? You should have time to hand piece a scrap vomit in your down time :-) Really wish I could make it - one year it won't clash with holiday stuff!

Katy Cameron said...

Have loads of fun! I'd love to come, but alas, some little thing in October is taking up all my holiday time... ;o)

Jantine said...

Great, I hope to remember, will be on my way Friday morning!

Two Wednesdays said...

Wow - 7! I am even more impressed. I would say that you would deserve some major retail therapy for that, except I can't see how you would fit it in.
Would love to go - but sadly I think it is always going to clash with family holidays for the next few years.

Kristen said...

Oh to be there to see all that yummy stuff.

Anna said...

TracyG said...

Hazel Raison said...
