Today we set up the stand for the Sydney Quilt & Craft Fair which opens on Wednesday at Darling Harbour Sydney.
We are very pleased to have a stand closer to the doors this year. Traditionally people always start at Row A and work through until the end. This must be very frustrating as the crowds in the first aisles are dreadful and down the other end you just hear the rumbling buzz of the crowd getting closer.
So this year we have a larger stand but nearer the doors which hopefully will be beneficial. It also meant that we could set up today and not tomorrow. Tomorrow is actually my birthday and it will be nice not to have to work and just have a pleasant relaxing day before the busy show week ahead.
This is what we started with and it only took about 3 hours to get it set up completely but we covered it all up before I got to take a finished photo.
It is always interesting to see what the Halls look like on setup days. Music is blaring and you can bop along to old familar songs.
We finished in such good time that we even went up to Chinatown for a great Yum Cha before going home (to wash and dye more fabrics)
