Quilt Market

Secretly companies must have a requirement that either you are super tall or super cute (or both) to design fabric and patterns.  I fit into neither group – so they won’t be calling me anytime soon!

A general overview seems appropriate at this time….especially because one of my friends actually said before I left town “Don’t let your arm get too tired from all the quilting this weekend.”  :-)

Quilt Market is not a time to actually quilt or sew or anything of that sort.  Quilt Market is a trade show for the fabric industry.  SO – who is there?

Fabric companies showing you all the new lines.  (This includes booths by fabric designers showcasing their fun prints!)  Pattern designers with samples of all their wonderful patterns.  Notions companies show-casing new gadgets.  Sewing machine companies, iron companies, soap companies that have special quilting friendly soaps, embroidery designers, embroidery computer software companies, etc. etc. etc.  Basically anything and everything that you can use or possibly need that is related to the sewing world.


Time for a couple fun pictures, wouldn’t you say?!?!?

Anna Maria Horner‘s booth and me with Anna herself.  I got one of her books, signed and everything. And I have to say that she is SO unbelievably sweet. After 3 days of me stopping by her booth to admire everything, she still was very nice!  Notice however, that she is taller than me and just super super cute.

Amy Butler‘s booth and me with Amy.  She is also very kind, very beautiful and VERY tall.  Let’s see if I can help you understand how short I truly am.  She had to bend her knees to squat down AND lean over and she still is a whole head taller than me!  Yep, I’m short.  That’s okay – when surrounded by such talent, I don’t mind.  :-)


Additional pictures are in my flickr album.  I was honored to meet Jessica Jones, Sandi Henderson, Heather Bailey, Patty Young, Paula Prass and more!  There are pictures of booths and pictures of me with many of these fantastic ladies.  And let’s not forget  the fun I had with Linda and Cindy.   I feel like I must continue this post…and yet I have a feeling that my family might like to eat tonight, so you can examine my continued shortness via flickr. (And in the few cases that I wasn’t significantly shorter, the super cuteness can be seen.) See you again soon!

    Funf, fun times! When I was looking at our pictures it occured to me that you and Cindy and I are all short! I’m so used to being the shortest one in pictures that it was surprising to me. :o)

    I think you’re super cute so if you want to design fabric or patterns, or write a book or something, I say go for it!
