We met Thelma from Cupcakes 'n Daisies for dinner. She had taken 2 classes from Carrie from Miss Rosie's Quilt Co and met us in Salt Lake after the classes. This was the second time that I had met Thelma and she is an absolute doll! Petite and sweet! I felt like an amazon next to her! We had a wonderful dinner and then off to Market for set up the next day. I put Thelma to work right away and she helped us set up my booth. Here she is labeling the brochures. What a great help she was!
Here is a picture of my booth the day of set-up. I was really please to see how it all came out.
I had 2 book signings for Fat Quarter Winners, one in the C&T Booth and the other one in the E. E. Schenck booth. It was so much fun talking to the people as I signed books. I love to hear where everyone is from and it amazes me how far they travel to get here for Market. I talked to people from New Zealand, Thailand and Belgium. Amazing!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday were a whirlwind of activities talking to shop owners, magazine editors and other designers. It is so inspiring seeing everything and chat with everyone.
I had 4 new patterns for this Market and here they are 2 made from Olde World Style:
Also, I debuted my new fabric line, Memories of Provence which will be out on fabric in September. It is reminiscent of French fabric inspired by the Provence region. It will have 3 colorways, blue, red and black with accents of green. I love the updated antique look. Here are the swatches of my new fabric and I will post my new patterns soon.
I will tell you more about Market and my new items later. Hope you enjoyed the first Market installment!
