Last weekend I drove up to Pomona, to attend the Quilting, Sewing, Craft & Needlework show. Last year when I went, it was just a Quilting/Sewing show and was a little disappointing. But I'm so glad I went again to this show. I hit upon a doll-makers booth and lots of interesting trims - velvet ribbon, velour flowers, embroidered rick-rack, space-dyed organdy ribbon, buttons, and on and on.... The display at this woman's booth was fascinating. She had boxes of different items and at the back of each box was a tall arched board, completely decorated with different ribbon flowers, buttons, beads, lace, etc. There must have been about 10 of these boards, all different. There were lots of handmade pins too. She said a lady she knew made the pins and traded them to her for merchandise. It was so gorgeous and inspiring! Enjoy - sometimes all it takes to inspire is some eye candy trims!
