They were doing their little clappy songs. Actually, the quilt show doesn't have much use for kids. It seems as though they would WANT to encourage DAUGHTERS to come to their little get togethers. I say little. I guess it was an international thing. What better way to insure the selling of $12.00 a yard fabric in the future, but to snag little girls into the love of making quilts? I think it was a good thing for our daughters (4) to see fabric, embroidering, handwork, needles, love of crafts, handmade purses, old tablecloths, BEAUTIFUL quilts and be happily prompted to love things like this. Girls are to grow up to desire to be keepers at home, an undone quilt would do just that! Why would they want to work, when they could stay home, have kids, and sew purses?
