I'm too new to have enough quilts that they get stored in a trunk, so I call what I do ... a BackPack Show.
I'm a quilt maker, but I'm also a storyteller. I was a storyteller first, since I came to quilt making in my 60s. I've struggled with storytelling as a way to make sense of my life for many years. Quilt making seems to be the medium that just works best.
For my BackPack show, I'll bring about 20 quilts and tell their stories for about an hour. I'll stick around after to answer questions and for hugs, tears, laughter, whatever. Like most quilt makers, I love to talk about my work!
BackPack show alone ... $200 + travel ($.50/km) + accommodation if needed
BackPack show combined with the workshop ... $150 + travel + accommodation if needed
