I knew if I was going to do a booth, I was going to do it "right". So hard walls were a given. Figuring out how to make them = not so easy.
In the end they are hinged 4'x4' panels of thin hardboard with a frame of 1"x2"s on the back. They were then bolted together on site. If I had it to do again I would probably use actual 1/4" plywood because the hardboard really isn't meant to be finished and it chipped a lot. And I'd probably use 2"x3"s for the frame.
But they arrived in tact, so there really are miracles.
The centerpiece of my booth was the waterfall. Yes I built it. It had just the right simple, modern, calm feel to draw people in to the booth and to show off the quilts. Honestly I knew from the start of designing the collection that it would be called Cascade and that if I had a booth it would have a working waterfall of some kind.
The ladder of quilts was screwed to the walls and I can't really see it standing like that at home, but it has definitely made me determined to built a few quilt ladders so I can get some of mine out storage and on display.
I'm so pleased with the overall look of the booth. In fact, I kinda want to set it up in a corner of my house so I can step into it whenever I want.
Since I was mostly standing in my booth, I didn't really see much of market this time. So sadly, I can give you much of a report, but I can tell you that good times were had. :)
Now that some time has passed and I've recovered, maybe I'll even be able to do a halloween post before Xmas gets here...
