Highlights of Quilt Market
Oh, where, oh where do I begin?!? This past week has been a whirlwind for us... so many exciting things! We spent a week up in Minneapolis at the International Quilt Market showcasing my new line of quilting cottons, Playdate, my new line of knit fabrics, and a whole slew of new sewing patterns. Our booth design was rewarded with a Second Place Award, so that was a definite highlight of the show!
Here I am with the Quilts, Inc. folks receiving my ribbon (Jon should totally be part of this picture since he built this thing with blood, sweat & tears!)
Then Michael Miller Fabrics (which was right across from us) won FIRST PLACE in the Best Multiple Booth category! What an honor it is to work with these über creative folks!!!
Here are the ribbons side-by-side (I'm so stinking proud, can you tell?) :)
And speaking of booths, it was such an honor to be sandwiched between the lovely Sandi Henderson...
And the bubbly duo of Pillow & Maxfield. We had a blast hanging out and chatting between visitors...
I didn't get a chance to walk around much, but luckily I received a constant stream of exciting visitors at my booth, starting with these Michael Miller Macho Men... sexy, eh?
And the lovely Kathy Miller...
We were delighted when the oh, so famous Melissa Averinos and her unicorn (of course) paid us a visit...
And totally thrilled to spend so much quality time with one of my favorite designers, Laura Gunn...
We had a few laughs with Moda sweeties, Joanna Figueroa and Kate Spain (yes, I really am that short!)
Then Jon and I actually snuck out for a few minutes to join Lizzy House and many, many others at Lizzy's annual cake party... YUM!!! (that princess cake with marzipan fondant icing was to die for!)
So glad I came, cause I got to spend some QT with the lovely Lizzy House, Jana Nielsen and Betz White.
And believe it or not, this is the only picture I got of Jon the entire time (slapping my own hand as I type), so if any of you out there have any others, please let me know! Jon is here chatting it up with organic fabric gals, Betz White and Michelle Engel Bencsko.
Yes, we sat on the floor and relaxed for a while... (in this photo, Bari J, me, Melissa Averinos and Jana Nielsen)
So now that I'm done name-dropping, LOL, how 'bout some pictures of our booth?!? :)
PHEW, that's all folks! Now back to work on next season's goodies... :)
