one week from this thursday i will board a plane and jet my way to houston! it’s october, and that means international quilt market. for those of you not familiar with quilt market, it’s not just about quilting. it’s an international show where all new fabric for the next season (along with patterns/tools/trim/etc) are showcased. i was invited to help build and work in a booth for sew liberated, which i did in 2012. i’ve done freelance work for meg and danica at sew liberated for many years now, and they have both been very supportive of elizabeth and i striking out and building snapdragon studios.
while i’ll be working in the sew liberated booth, i’ll also be representing snapdragon studios…changing in the restroom from one designers clothing to my own (sort of like superman…without the phone booth…and the super powers!) excited doesn’t really cover it….there’s anxious, nervous, thrilled, enthused, all atwitter! in 2012, meg and i won first place for single size booth….so there’s a bit of pressure there. here’s a few pics from 2012.
this year’s booth is looking very promising. we’re aiming for a comfy boutique setting. lots of cushy places for buyers to relax while perusing patterns. and danica has been soooo sweet in allowing me to promote snapdragon studios patterns while showing hers. i’m excited about showing off our newest patterns (stop by friday to see the release!!!!!) with buyers and distributors. and i’m looking forward to seeing the beautiful city of houston again.
now i just need to make a couple of things to wear, find some comfortable shoes, and i’m set to jet!
