Last night was
for International Quilt Festival
From 5-10 pm, the public
could enter in on a special ticket.
The first two hours are just
for Special VIP Entrants.
My big moment was to look
2 booth spaces down
Kaffe Fassett and
Liza Prior Lucy
at a book signing.
I am a BIG
The only fabrics I collect
In fact, during our little break
in between Market and Festival
I sewed in my hotel room
making a quilt
with Kaffes :)
both Kaffe and Liza wore
big Spiders on their heads.
Another BIG moment:
After the signing, as
Kaffe and Brandon walked down aisle
they paused at our booth
and commented on how much they liked
my Indian Blanket quilt
(the one hanging under our sign)
Kaffe noticed my quilt!
* Day Trip ( with Flying Geese to the left)
is made with Kaffe fabrics.
We have been traveling a lot the last few months
with quilt conventions
and another part that I have loved is reconnecting with friends.
Heather Purcell (Mother Superior)
of Superior Threads has been at the shows in
San Jose, and then here in Houston
and we have been visiting each others booths.
I used to work for Superior Threads
when we lived in St. George,
and it's been so nice to catch up
and find out the happenings back home.
It's been pouring rain the last few days here in Houston
but it hasn't discouraged the shoppers.
These ladies stopped by our booth
and were ready to
Look at these bags!
The fabric reps have left after Market
and new and wonderful booths have been set up for Festival.
Pat purchased this cute vintage lamp
for our spot right before the doors opened.
It's a good thing I spend most of my time in our
booth, or my $$$ could be in trouble.
