Wow, what an adventure from the first day of set-up to the very last day. I've been reading a lot of other blogger's experience at Quilt Market and I have to say I feel I missed out on some of the action because there is just no way to fit it all in.
In fact, I will link up with Diary of a Quilter and you can see some of the other fun stuff that went on at this wonderful show. Honestly, it was hard to do everything there was to do there. I took in what I could, but after setting up my booth and driving to Portland each day, I was so tired. I just can't imagine how people felt who were travelling from all over the US and beyond...they must have been exhausted.
My husband and I had fun setting up my booth. We even had time for a selfy portrait.
Here's my booth when we arrived...pretty bare.
Now it's looking a bit better...notice how I match so well with my booth...not planned! I was the 'where's Waldo' of Quilt Market...LOL.
Just about all set-up and ready for the mob.
Close-up of my bags. The totes you see on the shelf have chalkboard vinyl on the fronts so you can write the name of the contents...sew fun.
Last day of Market...
I am so thrilled to have had this opportunity to go to Market...I met so many wonderful people and made lots of connections with people I had been emailing...now I can put a face to the email.
Thank you, Timeless Treasures, who sponsored me and had my bags on their end booth display at Market (which I will post photos of soon).
Thank you, Alyssa, from Checker Distributors...you are the best.
Random thought...I know a lot of you follow Anna Maria Horner and she was due to have her baby soon, but there has been no postings on her blog for a month. My prayers go out to her and her family in hopes that everything is okay.
