This was the very best show. Way more vendors and
many more shops. People came from far and wide, even
with the horrid weather back east.

new patterns and they went fast.I wanted the "Get Kraken" and
she wouldn't let me have it until the end of the show. She of
course sold out and lucky for me, we found a pattern when she
was packing up! Love the Fresian samplers! This is a very funny
version of the battle of 1694 in the Greenland sea.
All lives were lost trying to trap the Sea mermaids.
It says in Dutch "And thus began the epic battle and no man
escaped his watery grave". * or maybe I just made all that up!
I especially love the tiny ship on the monsters tail!
Colors are fabulous Gloriana silks.
So we must all get Kraken!!!
