Whirlwind Weekend!

Oh my crafty goodness! What a crazy weekend! The XL Holiday Felt Club was a smashing success! There was a line arond the corner and up the street when doors opened at noon! The 250 swag bags were gone in 7 minutes! That has got to be some kind of record! Thousands came through the door and shopped like crazy! I have never seen anything like that!

It is worth mentioning the Felt Club is organized by Jenny of Sew Darn Cute fame. She is a wonderful lady and really works hard to make sure these events are a hit! At 11am the table rental that was supposed to have been there at 9am, still had not arrived! Jenny managed to pull a craftyass miracle and find a rental company around the corner from the event location saving the day! She was cool as a cucumber till the end! Thank you Jenny for all that you put into the show! I think all who were there would agree that it was a tremendous success!

All but a few of my photos were way too dark to even make out. I had very little time to roam around and take pics, but if you would like to check out other peoples photos of the event, you can click here. Also, check out Caroline Donahues blog Remabulous for a very cool account of her experience at the show!

So now I cant wait until this Saturday to check out Bazaar Bizarre as a shopper! It is fun to do these shows, but you cant really enjoy the shopping while you are working!
