Manteca Quilters Show

Hello Everyone,
Just a quick post to show you the Sew'n Wild Oaks booth at the Manteca Quilters show at the San Joaquin County Fairgrounds in Stockton, CA. this weekend, March 5th & 6th, 2016.

We started with this look at 11am and had the booth all pulled together by 1:30pm.  Thanks to the help of Mr. Joe and my sister Gail.

I LOVE pulling my booth together.  I LOVE having a blank canvas and turn it into a comfortable, attractive space that draws quilters in who want to just sit in the booth and soak it all in.

This booth was a little challenging because it is 16' deep and only 10' wide.  It is not a Double Wide Paradise like the Toby Keith song.  We ended up getting rid of two tables and opened up our space, so quilters would have more room to shop.

Having said that, our booth is a cute as a bugs ear!

While we were setting up, many of the guild members stopped by and showered us with compliments.

I bring my quilts, patterns and props from home. I pack up product from In Between Stitches which decorate the tables with "must have" items.  It's the perfect blend of quilting goodies.

 Mr. Joe made a bunch of Strip'n Sews, and ruler holders out of wine barrels.

Stop on by, and we'll leave the light on for you.



  1. The booth turned out great, and very inviting to wander through. Wish I could come by and visit....I will do it through your pictures! Have a great show and see you Tuesday.

    Now, about those ruler holders??????

  4. I love your booth, you and Gail do it good! Wish I was close by, I see all sorts of yummy things :0) Has Mr. Joe entertained the thought of making the ruler holders to fit our longarm rulers? It would look beautiful on my side table next to my machine! Hugs to you and Gail, have a successful & fun weekend at the show!

  5. Now all was need are some comfy chairs...I don't miss the fireplace quilt so much now that you've added the warm glow of candles to the lantern! Travel Safe My Darlin's!
