I know it is one more Market post. I am always a couple days later than everyone. I have great respect for those that can process the information overload known as Quilt Market so quickly and hit the ground running when they get home. I am just not one of those people.
Here is a rare sight... me on a telephone. I hate talking on the phone send me an email any day.
Sally and Brooke
So what do you say ... want to see some lovelies from Market?
I am so stinkin' proud of our Maureen! I always knew she was brilliant now everyone else does too!
fabric up for pre-sale in the shop and if you didn't know... when you pre-order from us you get one of these amazing exclusive postcards that Maureen offered only to us:
I know, I know on to the pics. Here are some pictures of her booth:
And a close up of that amazing pillow!
Here is something else I am super excited about:
Speaking of double gauze the girls from Cotton + Steel have collaborated on a double gauze collection to go in there next line.
it is called Bespoke... and I think it will go great with the Ellen Luckett Baker Double Gauze. They had a gorgeous double gauze quilt in the booth and it is so stinkin' soft. I am making one for sure. And it obviously makes great clothes.
I did the order months ago so it should all be in in January.
Okay I am overwhelmed by the pictures again... where to start...
We have Handcrafted in the shop so how about I show those?
Alison's booth was so inspirational. I loved the way she displayed everything.
These are gorgeous. We have Alison's book available in the shop right now. It is about Applique. Her stitching is so fun!
And just a few pictures to show how great it is for clothes:
Too much eye candy yet?? NEVER!!!
Tula Pink's booth never ceases to amaze... I didn't know you could get that much pink into that small of a space. :) I love that the Queen Elizabeth print is called 16th Century Selfie.
This is Biology by Sarah Watson for Cloud 9. It is organic... and arriving in December at the shop:
And here are Bonnie Christine's two new collections that will be arriving in spring:
and Hello Bear
Here is April Rhodes' Wanderer. One of the prints has her photographs on it. I think it is a lovely follow up to her Arizona.
And here is our friend Sarah in her cute booth:
Carolyn Friedlander's Doe is on the way in December. We have a giveaway for a charm pack here. As always it is very architectural and spare in the best of ways.
Okay... I have been writing this post for 3 hours... time to get something else done. I will leave you with some pictures of people that we love!
And Pat Bravo my sweet sweet friend and mentor.
One last thing... Going to Market gives us the chance to make lovely new friends. I was fortunate to meet Emma Jean Jansen the designer of Terra Australis and it just so happens she has an aunt that lives very close to me. So as she was on her way home to Australia she stopped to visit her aunt and .... came to the shop to visit us. Here she is yesterday posing with her fabric in the shop:
There are a few more pictures to show, of course, but for now... I say so long :)
