So what is it like to do demos at the Checker Open house? Well it is FUN! I had a few question on what 'is' Checker. Checker Distributors is one of the biggest quilt product distributors in the world. They carry books, patterns, notions, supplies and fabric to sell to quilt shops and others in the quilt industry. It is a wholesale event.
Nice thing is that anyone can look at their website. To order you must have a business account with them. See their website http://www.checkerdistributors.com/
Here is part one ... Sunday will be part two. Click the photos to see them larger!
the front of the warehouse... The show room is under the blue awning. The event started at the bay where the guys are standing and went to the end of the building... another bay or 2 past this photo.
Right after I set up. My neighbors had not gotten in yet! see the bay number behind me?
12 places to check out... woot woot for keeping the line moving! PLUS if they wanted to drop off a shopping cart (yes.... I DID say that.. wait for tomorrow).. they got a BEEPER to tell them when it was done being entered!!
My end cap display... cool eh? These are cover quilts and quilts inside my books.. you can find the books at my store! Http://www.patsloan.biz. And do you see the shopping carts?
