What is a Trunk Show?

 
In my world, a trunk show is a situation where
I send out original works to a shop so they can
display them.  Patterns always sell better when
there is a sample.  Shop owners do not have time
to make a sample of every pattern they buy.  This
collection is shipping out this morning and will be
traveling around the country for the month of
September going to various quilt shows.  I try to
include examples of various colors, I show the
feltworks as ornaments, décor, framed and as
pincushions.  I mainly work in wool felt but I show
one done in felted wool for those that prefer that.
I also send an example of one made with beading.
If anyone is interested in an American Homestead
trunk show, just email me at:

Sorry for the uninspired photo but this was shot
just to show what will be sent in the package.
