One would think with being gone almost a week
that I would have lots of pictures to show from market, but…
We are always so busy from the time we leave until we get home that I forget to take pictures!
I did snap a shot of our almost empty booth.
Our Schoolhouse sessions were well received.
Schoolhouse is where I reserve time slots to show
& discuss my new patterns the day before Quilt Market officially starts.
“Joy to the World” is one of my favorite new Tiny Dresden quilts.
I designed the nativity scene hanger set & Ackfeld mfg. is making them.
(They’re available on my website)
“BOO” is probably my best-selling new pattern since it was introduced at Spring Quilt Market in Portland, OR.
Once our Schoolhouse sessions were over we were able to finish hanging the booth.
There was a steady stream of shoppers at this market.
That means lots of shop owners to talk to and I’m very pleased with our sales.
It does make it a bit more of a challenge for me to remember the less important stuff,
like getting our pic taken in our booth, lol!
It was the third day of market before we remembered to have a neighbor take our picture!
Robin Koehler (Nestlings by Robin) was my helper (a.k.a. slave labor) for this market.
Besides having new designs featured in various quilt magazines & catalogs,
she also has a new series of tulip quilting stencils with
Quilting Creations, which debuted at market as well!
Some are for hand quilting and some are continuous line for machine quilting.
You can find them on Creative Creation’s site here!
Unfortunately, I hardly got out of our booth to see what else came to Quilt Market.
What I did get out to see, I saw during the little bits of time before the show opened each morning.
However, between putting finishing touches on my own booth the first morning,
going to Mass as the beautiful nearby Annunciation church the second morning,
& getting our rental van replaced the third morning… grrrr.
I always take a pic of my rentals’ license plate in case I need it to check into a hotel or WHATEVER.
It didn’t leave a lot of time for quilt market adventure…. but,
I saw a lovely new fabric line by Betsy Chutchian, Susanna’s Scraps that I really like.
Minick & Simpson also has a pretty new line, Crystal Lake, with lovely background prints,
& I really liked their adorable sand bucket!
And Regency Sussex by Christopher Wilson-Tate
is another collection that has that beautiful aged charm that I love.
Unfortunately it’s pretty blue… but those golds & neutrals!!!
I hope you’ve enjoyed my little market recap.
Just Keep Sewing…
