I can’t believe how fast things are moving with my Gem Affiliate business.
I’m scheduled to teach 2 classes at my local Michael’s store at the end of the month. Just need students to register for them.
I’m vending in 2 local craft shows in the next 3 weeks. Peotone FFA Toy Show and Frankfort Public Library Winter Art Show. Both will have finished quilts for sale, along with MJ Kinman’s patterns.
Plus I was invited to sell patterns and fabric bundles at International Quilt Festival in Rosemont in March. That is one huge show and way beyond my ability at this point. But a couple other Gem Affiliates are seriously considering it, so I may help out to see what’s involved.
My head is constantly churning on things to do before each event and how to best promote to quilt shops and guilds for more opportunities.
This is the June Alexandrite pattern that I plan to do with Fairy Frost fabrics. I love how they shimmer and think they’ll make a sparkling gem block.
