This is my first Spring Market and I’m learning a lot! I was hoping to help Valdani tonight at the Sample Spree but got caught in traffic and couldn’t find a parking space because there was a graduation at the Convention Center and things were crazy. So I went back to my hotel and thought I would update you on what’s happening instead.
I flew in yesterday and had the great fortune of having June Dudley, Editor-in-Chief of Quiltmaker Magazine as my seat mate! We had a great time talking about Modern Quilting, her new issue of 100 blocks, and she was kind enough to fill me in on what to do at the Market.
After checking into the hotel where my friends Liz Kettle and Ruth Chandler are staying, I drove over to the convention Center and brought some stuff to the Valdani booth where I will be demoing my Stupendous Stitching process and promoting my new book. And what a surprise! My friend, Dana Jonsson made a HUGE poster, featuring my book and my Valdani designer thread collection. Wow. I’m so honored! Here’s a photo of me in their booth with my Stupendous Stitching messenger bag, made by Ruth — my go-to bag for Spring Market!
