Craft & Quilt Fair Sydney Recap

#kerriegurney #craftandquiltfair

Ho everyone sorry for the lateness of this recap I have been busy prepping for the next Craft & Quilt Fair in Launceston and catching up on everything at home.

Sydney was fantastic, although wet and gloomy for most of the time it was still an amazing show with lots of creative people filling the venue.

Again I forgot to take photos of everyone doing my Make & Take classes, maybe I will remember in Launceston, I am too busy teaching and talking :)

Anyway thanks again to everyone who came along to visit me and take one of my classes, you were all so lovely and I really enjoyed meeting you all

To the person or persons who decided to steal my class kits and class sample right before I was due to teach a class ....What can I say but that was a very low act and karma will get you.
Not only by you stealing those kits to you put a damper on the show for me but also those who had paid to do my make & take and the classes afterwards.
I truly hope it was worth it for you and thank you for at least leaving the tools and adhesives.

I didn't let that horrible person ruin my time at the show as one awful person is stomped out but thousands of fabulous people

 here are some photos to prove it ...sorry lots of photos

firstly some photos of my displays on my stand

I have to say I loved the venue, it was so light and airy inside and catching a ferry to work each day was fantastic 

not a bad view back of the city either

My love card on the huge Welcome sign

This event is massive If you are a crafter you really should plan a Sydney getaway when the show is on ...i was surprised how many people do but I know why an amazing show with so many displays and exhibitors

Expertise Events staff and some of the Exhibitors getting into it before the day starts

I also went to see this ...AWESOME so glad I did I loved it, I just walked in without booking and got a fabulous seat pays to be a loner :)
at the gorgeous Capital Theatre

I had drinkies at Cyren with the fabulous Svenja who had a fan club with almost every Chinese/Japanese tourist coming for a photo with her ..they were so cute asking her for a photo
