We're in the home stretch in getting everything finished for Quilt Market in Houston this weekend. Gary and I will be hitching up the trailer (that's now full of all of the stuff it takes to put together an exhibit booth there) and making the drive to Texas starting tomorrow morning. Quilt Market is where quilting professionals of all types gather to see, buy, and sell all there is to offer in the quilting industry. I'll be showing my latest designs and samples to quilt shop owners and companies interested in licensing my work from around the world. It's my favorite show of the year and, because it's where I started in this industry 15 years ago, it's kind of like coming home.
Market is also special because, in a busy world, it's sometimes the only chance we get to see our friends and acquaintances we've met through this love we share for quilting and creating. And that's what I look forward to most. I have a long list of people I'll be looking for in all of the hustle and bustle and, even though there's usually only enough time for a few sentences to catch up on each others' lives, it will be great to see them, once again.
Keep your eyes on my blog over the next week because I have an announcement to make about a great new project I'll be involved with! I'm really excited to share it with you all but I need to wait until the formal announcement has been made at Quilt Market. Hopefully, I'll have a post about it, right here, on Friday :-)
Thanks for all of your support and good wishes for Market and I'll be in touch soon!
