Quilts in the garden!

Quilts were hung from the beautiful post and beam undercover garden area, also throughout the gardens, the setting was perfect and we are happy to annouce that we will be there again in 2010 on September 11 from 10am to 4:00 so we hope to see you then!

A Great big thank you to our Volunteers!

Dougal, Cheryl and I were humbled by our volunteers who put so much into making our show a success! We asked alot from them including getting up at the crack of dawn, but their enthusiasm, laughter, smiles and professionalism from each and everyone, made our show a overwhelming success! We didn't have to worry about anything, they thought on their feet and they dealt with anything that was thrown their way! We cannot thank them enough for all their hard work.

Here's our Sales area ready for set up

As you can see, we had alot to do, before 9:30 a.m., but when you have the best volunteers in the world, it'as amazing what can be accomplished!

Quilts at Tanglebank Country Gardens Show

Quilts at Tanglebank Country Gardens

After months of planning, our very first Quilts at Tanglebank Country Gardens is over and we were overwhelmed by the response!

A week before the show we had our volunteer meeting and they asked if what are we going to do if it R.......! We wouldn't let the say the word! We were determined to keep the "R" word from being said, because we believed the weather was going to be a glorious day! As I stood looking out the window on Wednesday watching the rain coming down in buckets, I thought to myself, it's okay this is only Wednesday, the rain will be gone by Thursday afternoon, or at least that was what the weather prediction was! They had to be right, no question! I woke up Thursday morning and the rain had stopped and the weather just got better and better! As you can see in the pictures, setting up the sun was shinning as our fabulous volunteers helped us set up!
