Quilt Market Trip
Monday, November 4, 2013
Jacey! It was really great to be able to relax for a bit after I landed before getting into the throes of booth set up and the show itself. Jacey and her husband Elliot very graciously had me stay the first night, and I had a great time! I ate real tex mex, and met their fabulous kitties, Bella (testing a quilt for me, above) and Olias!
Jacey was my lifesaver! She helped me out so much, from Ikea and Target runs, making sure I always had treats to eat and lots of moral support. Thank you Jacey, I couldn't have done it without you! She was totally understanding when we needed to make an emergency stop at Target to check out the new Orla Kiely stuff!
PS - It's awesome, obviously! I may have bought four pieces, oops. Sorry, not sorry!
Pure Elements Lemonade to be exact. The very best pure element color in my personal opinion. Seriously, it's awesome. I managed to fit everything for the booth in two suitcases and a carry-on again, with little weight and room to spare!
Jacey and I finally managed to get a photo together!
Soak booth! They debuted two new products at Quilt Market: designer nail polish sets, and Flatter smoothing spray! They had a lovely manicurist, Nail Mogul, so we all had our nails done! It was wonderful to feel pampered after long days on our feet. I picked up another bottle of Soakwash (I use it for all my hand knits, it's awesome!), and a bottle of Flatter to try out! Will report back once I use it, it smells amazing!
Color Me Retro Washi Tunic, which I now realize I never modeled for the blog! I blended right into the blue section in the colorful Art Gallery Fabrics booth! I used the Florette print in Sapphire from Color Me Retro, and Rae Hoekstra's Washi Dress Pattern.
Leah Duncan, Pat Bravo, Angela Walters, and Frances Newcombe. It was such a pleasure to spend time with these talented ladies!
Jacey and I tore down the booth as quick as we could and loaded up her car! It's amazing just how much you can stuff into a suitcase. I do wonder what the TSA agents were thinking about my bag though, haha!
