It turns out it's not so easy to blog from a phone, so sorry about that. Luckily, our home computer is up and running once again. If you don't know what International Quilt Market is, it's a wholesale/trade show which is not open to the public. Quilt shops are the guests and fabric companies, notion companies and pattern companies are there in full force. Lots of fabric and pattern designers also have booths. This show is followed by Quilt Festival, which is open to the public. Festival is when the shops get to have booths and sell to the public. Also, lots and lots of amazing quilts are on display. I've never been to the festival but would love to someday.
Here are some pictures of about half of the booths I liked. I'll follow this up with other posts throughout the week of other sites from market.
