The Quiet Corner Show
July 6th, 2007 / News, Road Trips / No comments

We had a great day at the Quiet Corner Show — which was much improved from the last time we did it. We were greeted by a Bob Payne (yes, a male rug hooker!) and his son Kevin who unloaded our cars for us. That alone is enough to get us to pledge to do every show they ever have . . . plus, the woman who ran it last time — the most overbearing, offensive person you can imagine with a bullhorn permanently affixed to her fist — was nowhere to be seen. We had a terrific spot, right in front of the door and right across from Jeannine of Two Old Crows, who had a beautiful booth.

My friends Barbara of Basket Garden Farm and Judy of 3 Bags Full were there, too, with beautiful baskets and lots of recycled wool.

The actual rugs in the show were varied, but they did that thing pinning big pieces of paper with the rug’s info onto the rug. It absolutely drives me crazy — it distracts from the rug and just looks cheesey. I’d seen many of the rugs befre, in other shows. The Quiet Corner Guild has decided to do the shw every other year, giving members time to hook up a storm.
