We’re back!! It was one of the best times I’ve ever had at Quilt Market!
My daughter, Sarah Raffuse, made a great presentation at our Schoolhouse Session (late in the afternoon, so we offered chocolate at the door 🙂 and our Take & Teach Class was SOLD OUT before Market even opened (wow!). Here are some pics from the Take & Teach, with some of the participants and their little quilt projects:
We had a great crowd at the book signing in the Krause booth and got to catch up news with some quilters who helped us out a LOT in Houston for the 2007 Quilt Market – -one of them had made five quilts (using our methods) since she got her book last year!!
Houston was warm and sunny (80 degrees didn’t feel like a “fall” market to me!) and Market was a crowded and happy affair and it looked to me like there was a lot of commerce being conducted between the vendors and the buyers. I’ll be posting about some of the patterns & vendors that caught my eye over on Quilt News.
Oh, and a double special bonus: I was able to meet up with my old pal Trish Stuart (I used to quilt for her and worked in her booth at several Quilt Markets) AND a quilt that she painted and I quilted was in the booth for Tsukineko Inks. That’s Trish in pink on the left, our quilt under our arms and me in the blue on the right. Look at those huge smiles 🙂
