Back Home!


International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. How fun was that! Just got home thismorning and I'm so tired, but it's a good tired. I think I walked 10 miles each day just within the convention center alone. The convention center is huge and I tried to walk around as much as I could so I could gather in all the new ideas, touch all the newfabric coming out and chat with the fun men and women at quilt market, some of them old friends from the very first market I went to five years ago and some of them new friends from this market.

I was there to help my sister Jan's company, The Apron Lady designs. She has darling new apron patterns and a fun new applique quilt. We were busy with business almost every minute of each day. Here are some pics from the first day.

Sample Spree was our first big event to prepare for. It's a whirling frenzy of shoppers for just a 2-hour period of time. They line up outside the room sometimes up to 6 hours before the doors even open.
Then the countdown begins and the doors open. I was almost hoarse after the 2 hours was over.

Here's some shots of our booth all prepared and ready for our first customers. I'll post more pictures later.

Your booth is so cute. I can't believe I didn't make it there.
