After Market

posted Nov 4, 2012, 7:13 PM by Kimberly Purdy

Finally settled back into the normal routine after the International Quilt Market in Houston.  Had a great time, just like last year.  This time though, I knew to make sure to take frequent breaks, and to make sure to stay hydrated.  If you have never been to Market or Festival, it can be quite overwhelming.  So much to see and do.  I've posted some more of the pictures in an album on my Facebook page for anyone to look at, if you want to see some of the things that were at Market.

Dad and I had our picture taken with Marianne Fons while at Market.  I had done a quilt for them in their Fall 2012 issue of Scrap Quilts called The Stripes of Summer.  Dad had done the longarming for me, so he was also mentioned in the article.  It was a really fun day!

Moda had the largest booth (of course) and also won first place for the multibooth exhibit.  They always have great things to look at.

I introduced a new pattern at Market.  My Small Holdall.  It's the same style as my Quilter's Holdall, except half the size.  It's still perfect for storing and organizing your fat quarters, half yards and even whole yard pieces, but the Small Holdall is also for carrying your tools to class, for small projects, knitting, crocheting and tatting.  Or even for none craft related items, like carrying shoes in your luggage, makeup and toiletries, or even Barbie dolls and Legos.  You can check them out in more detail on the Small Holdall page under Projects.
