Spring Quilt Market Round Up

Shop Owners and Teachers at Color Mastery Schoolhouse Lecture

I attended Spring Quilt Market in Pittsburgh this year as a vendor for the first time.  It was a wonderful opportunity to talk with quilt shop owners and teachers to find out what they needed from publishers.  Here I’m educating shop owners on Color Mastery and the twelve months of classes they can teach from it.

An amazing transformation happens at Quilt Market:  it starts as an empty convention center and in the span of two days magically becomes the most beautiful city of quilts you can imagine.  Here’s the before and after of the Willow Ridge Press booth:

The necessities every booth must have, complete with adoring husband ready to help!

And here’s the booth finished with all the quilts, books, handouts, the author herself, and of course, chocolate!

I met all kinds of wonderful people, like Bev Vollaire Ferro of Tiger Tape, Mark Lipinski, saw my buddy Kay Mackenzie, my photographer Gregory Case, and here’s Beth from Lizzy B Cre8tive in my booth:

Tomorrow I’ll show you my faves from all the new quilts, fabrics, and patterns the best and brightest in the quilt world are offering.
