I’m sew excited to be headed to Quilt Market this weekend! Last time I went to Market was the Spring after I opened Sewtropolis and it was, conveniently, being held at the Convention Center in Minneapolis.
Back then I had no idea what to expect or what to do! I asked my friend Jennifer to go with me – back then she was my moral support and I brought her everywhere with me. When we walked into the Hall both of us just stood there not knowing where to begin! There was SO MUCH to see!! There were rows and rows and rows of fabric and patterns, books and notions! There was so much to see that I could spent two days walking up and down the isles – just trying to take it all in. Little did I know that the ‘show’ is just part of what Quilt Market is all about! They actually have CLASSES!!!
So this weekend I’m spending 3 whole days at Market and I’ve signed up for all the classes time will allow me to take! I will also be on the hunt for the coolest stuff to bring back! I wish I could take everyone, but unfortunately some of you have to work. So, I will be doing the next best thing: updating Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Pintrest and the Blog. I encourage you to follow along and let me know what you want to see at Sewtropolis! Have a favorite designer? Let me know who it is and I’ll do my best to see what they have at Market after all this is where most will be ‘revealing’ their newest lines!
Personally I’m on a mission to meet Tula Pink the master mind behind the “Prince Charming” line of fabric! She has a new line coming out at Market: Birds & Bees. I’ll bet it has Birds and Bees…. hidden in Flowers and Trees.
See you at Market!
This year I am planning on staying the whole weekend so that I can attend the Schoolhouse Series. I’m hoping to learn the latest and greatest so that I can bring them back to you! I’m considering this a interactive trip – my plan is to tweet, blog and update Facebook and Pintrest with all that is going on at Market. Want to join in? Then be sure to follow me and let me know what you want me to see! I’m not shy when it comes to taking pictures!
