The really big thing about this event -- what makes it DIFFERENT from every other sewing event in the country -- is the location. It's actually IN THE NANCY'S NOTIONS WAREHOUSE. They move everything for the weekend. AND they hang a huge quilt show. AND they use six or seven other locations around town. The churches, schools, skating rinks. Then -- THEY BUS PEOPLE from place to place. IT IS SOOO COOL...
Even the hallways are decorated with quilts.
|This quilt, hanging in one of the hallways -- caught my attention.|
|Each State has it's own appropriately themed-fabric.|
|People on snow skis for Colorado...Horses for Wyoming...Beef for South Dakota...|
|CORN for Iowa...|
|Flamingos for Florida (of course!)|
|The entire store is set up for sewing machine demos and sales.|
|This is the Sewing Weekend version of tailgating!!|
|Even though he was working until the wee hours of the night...every night...the President of Nancy's Notions took a minute for this picture.|
