We just took down the Wellington Symposium exhibition and that is a rotten job. These are the things I learned.
1. Some of the most experienced quilters have the worst labels on their quilts (biro on a scrappy piece of fabric with crossings out).
2. Some of the most experienced quilters do not send any packaging to send their quilts home again or any courier tickets to pay to send them home (maybe they thought the quilts would sell?)
3. Send a good solid box or courier packet not a rubbish sack to get your quilt home again. Who knows who will put your masterpiece out with the rubbish.
At the end there was a massive pile of courier parcels and nothing missing . I hope never to be involved with packing up such a large exhibition ever again.
