Market was good!
This was my home away from home for the weekend.
I enjoyed speaking to lots of shop owners about my new patterns & books.
Some came from as close as Texas and as far away as Australia & Chile to name a few.
This is also where other quilt entities such as catalogs, magazines and fabric companies come to get ideas for their next business endeavors.
I met up with old friends & met some new ones too, that’s the best part of market.
My neighbors were
my friend Celine Perkins, of Perkins Dry Goods.
We shared a hotel & car at this market.
Celine always has new, expertly pieced quilts with great patterns.
My new friends & neighbors this market were,
Margaret Travis of Eazy Peazy Quilts.
She makes the cutest placemats with Bosal’s Placemat Craft Packs.
Margaret’s booth was directly across from mine,
so I had plenty of pretty to look at while not chatting with anyone in my own booth.
Next to Margret was
Sue O’Very of Sealed with a Stitch.
Sue has lots of cute designs for machine embroiderers.
Her theme for this market was Paris.
Her business cards were attached to French coffees and teas.
On the other side of my booth was
Sheila McKay of McKay Manor Musers (and her sister).
They have the cutest patterns for making super-soft animals, scarves and other cute stuff.
Unfortunately, I didn’t have a helper at this market so I didn’t get out of my booth much to look around at what others were showing.
Market is always a whirl wind.
I work frantically getting everything done, then before I know it, I’m back home and starting the next round!
I hope your fall is going well, and that you’re getting some quilting time in.
Until next time,
