Happy Halloween everyone!! Do you have on a costume??? If you do... send me a photo or at least tell me about it!
Quilt Market is such a GREAT event for people in the industry. It is our 'twice a year' fix of seeing our friends, customers, and business partners. I went this year and did 2 book signings, showed my fabric to customers and worked at catching up with everyone I have not seen for a year.
Since I'm a designer and not a shop owner, market is a bit different for me. I go to market to meet my customers and share my work with them. I also go to work with my business partners and to see what's new with them.
This year I went to work with my partner's in their booths and that gave me some extra time to walk the show and look at what everyone was doing. I'll do a few posts from the trip over the next few days.
Today I've got the P&B ladies who set up the booth. They came into Texas early and went to the Alamo. They took 7 hours to do a 3 hour drive... because they are GOOD SHOPPER girls!! Here they are wearing their 'No Worries' t-shirts found at a road side store.. SO FUNNY! (if you know the store let me know.. I forgot to write it down!)
Next 2 photos are of the New Product area. Vendors can rent a space here to show off their newest wares. It's a great way to have a fast preview of the products that people rented space for. The first shows all the new lines from P&B and the second was next to us. It is The Vintage Spool display... I loved her sea things!
Last photo is my display in the P&B booth.
I SO loved reading all your Comments from the posts that came up while I was gone! Answers to a few questions-
--The 'wool cutter' is to cut perfectly sized yarn strips for doing latch hook rugs.
--I now have a good list of places that carry the Altoids sours.. THANK YOU!! I hope to find some soon.
--My badge holder is a 'remix'. I took a pre-made badge holder that has a logo at the top. I covered the logo with fabric & buttons... 'wha-la' NEW... CUTE Badge holder!
--Watch for more Ferris Wheel stuff ... I think I DO NEED that t-shirt or maybe the votive holder... I just LOVE looking at them! Thanks Cathi for posting some other 'news worthy' tidbits on the ferris wheel.. history is good!
