I had so much fun at quilt market this year. The dust is finally starting to settle a bit so I thought I would do a little recap for you...
|When I first arrived at the convention center, there was nothing but concrete floors, crates and lot of fork lifts buzzing around.... within a couple of days it was a full blown quilt market....|
This was my first quilt market, I have sent samples with my distributor the last four years... since market was in Minneapolis, my home town, it would be silly not to go. I was such a newbie... OMG so much to learn. It was like getting ready for a wedding or graduation. A ka-zillion details to remember. When I first got to the convention center and found my space I remember thinking, 'what did I get myself into'. But that melted away as soon as Lynn and I got to work hanging drapery, constructing the floor etc. There was little time to worry about all of the hub bub going on around me.

Will I do market again? You bet I will! It was a fantastic experience. I couldn't have done it without the help of my friend, Lynn and my sister Laura. They were awesome and kept me focused. Reminded me to eat, took notes, kept the paperwork organized. Sent me out on the last day to browse around and meet 'my' people. I know they had a fabulous time too.
Now I haven't touched my sewing machine since market. My studio is still trashed from getting ready for this event... today I am cleaning and organizing my space in hopes to have some quilty fun tomorrow. I'm looking forward to posting some quilty fun for you all this summer. Start some new projects, wrap up some ufo's. Most of all I look forward to sharing it all with you.
