Booth Display for Cleveland Expo

By Somanycolors
I've decided on shelving for my booth at the Original Sewing and Quilt Expo in Cleveland. They are black wire shelves that will be light weight, sturdy and easy pack and to set up. (OK, so some reviewers recommend a mallet. I'll do a trial run before the show.)
Booth Display for Cleveland ExpoI've ordered one 5 shelf and two 4 shelf units. I plan to integrate the units into a 9 foot wide display. The tall one will be in the center with shelves for the shorter ones staggered on the same uprights as the tall one. The shorter uprights will be on each end. Will send pics from the show-but it looks great in my head!
The best part is that I found a post by Maggie of Smashed Peas and Carrots showing how she organizes her stash.

Take a look at how she achieved beauty & function: Smashed Peas and Carrots: Mini Fabric Bolts and Some Studio Organization.
For the show I knew I didn't want to stack the fabrics on top of each other. Also couldn't really put them on regular bolts since they are all 60"-66" in length. Plus my shelving is only 14" deep. Maggie's solution just makes all kinds of sense.
I am going to use larger and stronger cardboard pieces from Uline but I tried it out and it works great! Thank you, Maggie.
Making progress on my checklist. Web site up-check! Display planned-check! Transient Vendors License-check! Shopping bags-half a check since I still need to dye them. The only hold up is that my bamboo/cotton fabric isn't here from Wazoodle yet. But hey, I still have two weeks...
