In doing research for marketing our Quilt Guild's raffle quilt this year, I spoke with my neighbor who is the tasting room manager at Patit Creek Cellars. He was very informative and helped to determine a few things that probably wouldn't work, but also mentioned that they used to have a quilter that regularly showed quilts in their tasting room, and sold pieces as well. He suggested that if I'd like to display things or sell things, they would welcome those additions to their room. Well, nothing like an open invitation to an entrepreneur, eh? !
Wednesday night my husband was kind enough to help with designing and fabricating hanging mechanisms that would work within Patit Creek Cellar's tasting room. I hope this is a good investment.
Three of my quilts are also hung for DISPLAY ONLY, at least for now, at Patit Creek Cellars. I've also put up the wall hanging, I just finished, pot holders, table trivets and my newest item, bottle bags available for purchase as well.

AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE:
|Bottle Bags and Quilted Potholders and Table Trivets|
I'm anxious to see how it goes for the next couple of weekends and if I need to get busy next week and make more based on the first weekend's activity. I'd like to at least back a few potholder/table trivets with hot air balloon fabric to be thematic for the weekend.
If you're in the area and would like to see the quilt and possibly enjoy tasting Patit Creek's new wine, definately something you should consider checking out.
Have a safe Spring Release and Balloon Stampede Weekend (I'll be at Spring Quilt Market in Salt Lake City during Balloon Stampede). Let me know if you get out to Patit Creek Cellars and what you think.
