Well, I’ve made it back from Quilt Market. Of course it was a blast and totally got the creative juices flowing, but at the same time, I’m sort of tuned out to work right now. Just can’t quite get back in to the swing of “regular” life, if you know what I mean? Except I'm totally enjoying family time, these last few days.
Anyhow, I will give you all a “market report”, as I know that’s what you want. That’s what I’m all about. Giving ‘em what they want.
So today we’ll start with some of the stars of or fabric and sewing world. You know, the household names.
I took a ton of pictures, but not nearly as many as last time. It turned out I didn’t have as much time to walk around as I did then. In fact, I didn’t see everything! How can that be? So if I don’t have pictures of your booth it may be I never saw it or I forgot to take pictures. Oops.
So these are some of the bigger names. Not all, mind you. I mean, I didn't even know Jay McCarroll was there.
These first ones are the lovely Amy Butler and her new collection Love.
I got to meet her this time around. So sweet and humble as everyone says.
Next up is Heather Bailey. Oh boy, did her booth impress. She won first place. Obviously.
Seriously, I just wanted to move right in.
I love the new collection and I’m excited some is coming in oilcloth. I’ll be buying some of that up, before it’s gone in 5 seconds.
And now we have Anna Maria Horner. Yes, she pulled this off with a 5 month old baby. Is she human? I think not.
No really, she was super-sweet and her baby Roman, was just adorable. This fabrics looks pretty, but wait til you feel it. So luscious.
And even a shot of the infamous Allie and Juliana:
I’ll include Sandi Henderson’s booth here too since she won Best Merchandising. Another gorgeous line I’ll have to add to my stash. And patterns too!
I’ll include the other Michael Miller designers in another post.
Next up is a close look at the Windham booth (we won 2nd place for multiple booth!) and my section in it.
