News From Joy and Randy

May 10, 2017

We had a good show at the AQS Paducah show.  It was fun visiting with all of the vendors and customers that we had not seen in awhile.  We love eating at the new Culver's.  They have great hamburgers and frozen custard.   They have coupons that you can print off and buy one meal get one free.  Also, if you sign up for a text message you can get a word to use for a free custard cup.  We will be back in September for the first Fall AQS Paducah show and more good eats.  There was a field behind the mall that was 11 acres of strawberries.  There was a sign pick your own.  I loved the idea we used to pick crates full at home and at the end of the day get to buy a couple with the money we earned.  We were not able to make it on pick day so Randy stopped by and got me a box.  He said he picked it out of several choices, so he said he picked it.  I froze them and put in the freezer of the motor home.  Then, when we left Paducah we went to Arkansas and stopped to visit my older sister.  My younger sister came down and we had a great time visiting, planting flowers and eating strawberry short cake each night.  I still have one big bag in the freezer but Randy forgot to get me some Blue Bell today at the store. We have to take his pick up to the shop tomorrow so we may have to stop at the store.

I have got all of the fabric ordered that I need for the KC Regional Show in Overland Park, KS in June.  Randy likes this show location as he always needs parts from LMC Truck Parts in Lenexa which is close to the convention center.  Also, we like eating at Jack Stack BBQ.

I like shows that have easy dock access to load and unload, RV Park that is easy to get in and out of and great places to eat.

We had a good show at Dallas and I have decided to do one more Dallas show next year.  I started doing shows in Dallas in 1993 so we will finish doing shows in Dallas in 2018.                We may not be doing shows next year after Dallas but we will continue with our mail orders.

I have been working on a new sample for the booth.  It is called Shadow Cabins and it made with the Black/White Gelato #904 and Violet-VG Gelato but I can substitute any color of the Gelato instead of the Violet in the kits.  I am cutting kits today and the kit will be $125.00 each.  I will post details of kits later in the week and a picture of the sample which I am binding today.

Kit contains:   6 yards of Black/White Gelato #904, 1.5 yards Gelato Violet, 2 yards of Jet Black Kona and pattern

I have the racks all ready for the Dallas Quilt Show March 10-12 at Market Hall.  This will be our 25th year of doing shows and I have only missed one Dallas show in all these years. I think this will be our last year to do shows.  I have a few hand dyed fabrics left and will bring them to Dallas.  I will not be reordering some of the fabrics when that color is sold out.  I will keep the Two Fabric Bargello Kits and the fabrics that I use to make them.  I have white, black and several colors of the Ultra Sateen by Robert Kaufman left but will not reorder.

I still have a few dresses and may put them in a tub and bring just in case someone wants them.

Hope everyone has a great week!
