Today Jason and I went to a local fabric trade show, sort of like a mini “quilt market” (as opposed to a mini-quilt market, LOL!!)
Anyway, we got to meet with many of our fabric vendors to preview the upcoming fall lines and order oodles of fabric! Here I am with one of my favorite sales people, Katie M. from Quilting Treasures.
The hardest thing about attending Market is having to wait for the fabrics to actually arrive. For example, I ordered Charlie Brown’s “The Great Pumpkin” line, but it’s not even coming out until next Spring! At least that will be in plenty time for next Halloween. In the meantime I’m expecting a delivery of more Happiness is Peanuts & Project Linus fabric any day now…
I’ve been dying to get my hands on some Pearl Bracelets ever since I saw one of the prints in a Modern quilting book. Lizzy House is releasing her brand-new 26 piece line in November, so I bought it all!
Along with fabulous shopping, I got a sneak peak of some upcoming Batik Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, and Jelly Rolls. Hoffman calls them Bali Snaps, Crackers, and Pops. Too cute!
