|View looking down the table
It was quite an adventure figuring out how to transport and display even part of my collection. We meet at a local quilt shop and space is limited.
I used two tables at the front with chairs facing the tables. The group doesn't have a projector so I 'talked' my way through my PowerPoint presentation, holding up pictures as needed. Next, we went back through the items on the tables. Afterwards people were free to come up and have closer looks. Some took pictures and looked at the reference books I brought.
|The tables were over flowing
|A few of my needle cases
The shallow cases are for the smaller pieces - like needle cases.
In this case I included photographs with the needle cases open, showing how they store thread and needles. In some examples the lid is a thimble.
I also enlarged photos to show the signatures on some of the art and signatures on the cases.
The cases worked OK, I somehow managed to crack three of the glass covers during loading/transport so I have some glass work to do.

The other end of table two.
In future posts I will share all of these pieces with you. It was nice to share them in person with others and have 'live' discussions.
Members also brought pieces from their collections and shared with the group.
Do you have some older needlework tools? If so what is your favorite? I can't chose a favorite...
Have a great weekend!
