Organizing for a program.........

This has been a very social week so I have only had bits of time here and there to sew.  Yesterday I visited my brother and sister-in-law in their new residence.

I decided I needed to start organizing my quilts and tops for the trunk show program that I will be giving in about 10 days.
I group similar things together so if I'm talking about star quilts, I'll show all of the star quilts at that time. 

I need to decide which ones will hang on backdrop stands.  I have 2 stands that I take and there will be at least one more available if I want it.
 
I have a lot more piles to make so I'll keep working on it over the weekend.  Then I need to decide the order that they will be shown in the program.  I try to alternate quilted ones with quilt tops so the ladies holding them up have a break.  Their arms get tired after awhile.  After that comes the packing of a couple large bags and rolling the rest on swim noodles and tying the roll with strips of fabric.

sounds like you have it planned out good. It would be fun to see the quilts in person - have a great time with this.

I don't know if I could survive seeing all those quilts all at once in person! Just kidding. It looks to be a stupendous opportunity to inspire others and get your work seen.

When we have a person showing their quilts we take turns holding the quilts---15 mins. each so that everyone get to see the program Just a thought. The others sign up for put up and take down. That way the work load is shared.

Is there any chance that someone could make a video (like your gallery show) and that you could post it on your blog? That would be a wonderful opportunity to see many of your quilts!
