While sleeping beauty snoozed in the other bed, I got ready for day 2 of Market. I was attending my first Take and Teach session for this Market. This is when you learn a new skill that you can take back and teach in your shop. I selected Carefree Curves. Although I have stitched curves before I thought that it would be fun to learn a new technique......plus I got to use a sewing machine......something I have missed dreadfully for the past 3 and a half weeks!
It was a fun 1.5 hours and I will definitely be running a class using this technique with Nancy Zieman's Carefree Curves Templates.
Hannah was waiting for me and we finally enterred the massive hall of traders.
I'm quite bad at this.....I never remember to take photos! I think I am too busy looking around at all of the lovely things on offer. We did a lot of catalogue collecting today and will go through them, make decisions and then head back to make our purchases over the weekend. I did buy a few things today and one of them was this cute new bag pattern from Anni Downs at Hatched and Patched.
I always have to stop at the Art Gallery Fabrics booth. They do a wonderful display.......check out the yo-yos.....
Lunch time.........We decided on a Baked Potato.....but this is the first time I have ever had the option of broccoli on a spud......lol! Not keen on the orange cheese but you can't not have cheese (unless you are lactose intolerant....sorry Hannah)
We dropped by to say hi to our friend Gail. It's hard to believe that 2 years ago I was helping her at Market.....just seems like yesterday.
And we had to take a photo of her at her book signing......
This was at the Red Rooster Fabrics Booth.......I have been informed by the Australian Distributors that Gail's new fabric range should arrive in the shop next month......yay! I get to line up tomorrow for my copy of her book.........should I heckle her?
It has been a great day.......but for some it was all just a bit too much and a nap was required.....

PS. The ice-cream was delicious!
