Preparation Tips for Quilt & Craft Shows

At this time of year, there often are many holiday bazaars and craft shows where you can display and sell your quilts and fabric items.  Perhaps you have some other crafts for your booth or table as well.

Preparation generally is the key to having success at a show…in terms of people coming to your booth and items sold.  (Yes, there are some variables you can’t control such as weather, conflict with a school program, office parties, etc.)  However, you can become knowledgeable about the strategies you can control for quilt and craft shows.

I came across a very informative item at A Patchwork World, The Do’s and Don’ts of Craft Shows. 

Even if you finished with quilt and craft shows until 2008, you may find these tips helpful in your future planning.  You may have that “Ah! Ha!” moment, when you wonder why you didn’t think of something so simple as one or more of the tips.
