I’m about ready to get on a plane to Houston, Texas to attend one of the industry’s largest events–Quilt Market. You’ve probably heard about it, or its counterpart Quilt Festival. Market is where shop owners go to see the latest new products and fabrics, and order them for their stores…they’re ordering fabric by the bolt, and quantities of items to stock, so it’s a wholesale show only.
I go to the show to learn what’s new in the industry so I can share it with you, and to help give me new ideas for magazine stories. Although I can’t buy anything there, I can certainly soak it all in.
Next week, I’ll write about what’s new and any new industry gossip I hear at the show–there’s always something unexpected.
In the interim, keep sewing and make something great for Halloween–whether it’s a cool costume to wear, or something to decorate divine.
