Thursday morning almost before the sun was shining, I left with Roxane and Helen to go to the Omaha Quilt Show. We had the booth set up by 3pm or so and headed out for a little lunch. The show opened at 5 pm. I demonstrated the Bohin chalk pencil, three-pocket bag, and cell phone bag make with s quiltsmart panel. We sold all of our stock of pencils and three-pocket bags. It is such fun to talk with quilters and learn what they are doing. Friday was especially long as the show opened at 9 am and closed at 8 pm. The quilts they had hanging at the show were very nice. They said the attendance was better than last year. Our booth had lots of quilters in it most of the time. We got back home about 10 last night.
We saw houses surrounded by the high water in places. Highway 75 was the only one open into Omaha from our direction. It was a fun three days.
