Quilt Market Recap

We had a wonderful, productive time in Houston at the annual International Quilt Market.  Just about everyone involved in the quilting industry is there - fabric designers and manufacturers, pattern makers, distributors, notions companies, authors, publishers, press and of course shop owners.  We have a day of all day demos and previews at the annual Schoolhouse.  The following three days find the market floor open for us to see everything, connect with people and order for the coming months (or year).

We were treated to wonderful show and tells from our favorite quilters, such as Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably

Eleanor Burns had some exciting new things to share with us.  (What, you ask?)

Pam Vieira-McGinnis, aka Pam Kitty Morning, showed of the cutest bag she made out of her newest fabric collection Pam Kitty Picnic.  This new line is wonderful and due in to StitchCraft in November!

Do you recognize this talented quilter?  Find out who she is and why I am smiling and hanging around her booth this Saturday, at our Quilt Market Recap at 1:00 pm.    We will show you all of the exciting trends and tips that we saw at market, along with a preview of what fabrics, notions, tools, patterns and clubs are coming to StitchCraft.  We will have refreshments and some giveaways to some lucky guests. See you Saturday!
