Assisting with the Craftsy Open Studio set-up

Open Studios lives!  One of my favorite activities in past years at festival was participating in Open Studios, once sponsored by Interweave.  I enjoyed talking to festival attendees, demonstrating a variety of things such as screenprinting, monoprinting, free-motion quilting, and more.
It was thrilling to learn that Craftsy decided to underwrite this wonderful part of Quilt Festival!
Here are some scenes from the initial set-up:

Here comes the Open Studios sign!

Pokey brought props from home and Jamie contributed 
a few of her vintage patterns

I stuffed some of my hand-dyed cloth into my recently-acquired paint cans
from the Moda booth.
Jamie and I hung letters from our "clothelines" in each section.

The Open Studios area was located just inside the Food Court area.
It was a fantastic location because there was a lot of traffic through this area,
and many people pulled up chairs to sit and watch the various artists 
demonstrate.  So much fun!
