trip to the Maker's Fair

Bob and I went into Kansas City ... to Union Station actually... to take a look at this year's Maker's Fair. I think this is Kansas City's fifth show. Last year we went on a very hot Saturday and it was a mad house. This year the weather was so much nicer and since it was the last day/ Sunday , it was much less frenetic. Lots of new things... more non-profits : Kauffman Center, organic foods, lego giveaways ( boxes of donated legos are put into nice boxes with assembly instructions and given to children in the local CASA court system). The woodworkers guild made wooden toy parts for children to put together. Lots of companies demonstrating 3-d printers.  Booths of handcrafted items.  etc etc etc.... Interesting.... New this year too was a group of restored or souped up vintage cars on the drive outside of the station.

This was a nice change from bear making.... the "Summer Sizzler" show is August 2-3. I need some new things!!

We have plans for swimming with our daughter and the grandchildren on Wednesday. It certainly has been hot enough.  Hopefully  rain will "not fall"  from 4 to 6 pm!! LOL

Teddies Worldwide. show coming up

My sister-in-law drove from South Carolina for a visit with us!! We had a good visit.... our kids and grandkids came over for several visits with her and we went on a road trip to Hamilton, MO. ...the home of the Missouri Star Quilt Company. It has only been in business for maybe 5 years but has grown by leaps and bounds. Most of Hamilton is now quilt stores or rented from the quilt company . The Small Business Association helped them finance the new 42,00 sq ft shipping building. The old library is full of quilting machines where they quilt for customers.  Hamilton is also the birthplace of JC Penney and I think the home of his first store.  So there must be something in the water!
Now that my sister in law has left and the weather has gotten cold and wet ,I am working on teddy bears and friends for the upcoming " Teddies on Vacation"  show. I haven't decided which will be my preview bear...lol !  When I do, I will post a picture  and the link.
