Spring Quilt Market was an excellent show and a great experience. I hung around Studio E’s booth as much as possible while still walking the show to see what else is going on. I wanted to watch how the quilt stores made their decisions, how the sales reps presented lines and be able to ask questions and listen to those who are on the front lines — the store owners.
It was a very valuable experience. I was so blessed that my “Deja Brew” collection is being so well received by the stores as was my “Chocolate Love” line this spring! That’s what allows me to keep designing which is such fun.
I have to try to figure out how to retrieve the photos from my daughter’s digital camera. I’m going to post this without photos and add them when I can if I can.
I had a wonderful time with Cheryl, who traveled over 6 hours to come to Pittsburgh and stay with me. She was so kind and funny and helpful. It’s especially fun to put a face and voice to a name when you’ve only known each other through the internet.
Life SHOULD settle down a little in the next few weeks so hopefully I can catch up on loading some kits and maybe even creating some new art! I’m going to have a new cupcake art kit soon so I’ll get to work on finishing it first.by
