Finally getting a chance to post some photos and news from Spring Market! First and foremost, I have to thank the staff at Benartex Fabrics for the hard work and detail that went into what I can only say is a delightful, line of fabrics to create with!
I had the privilege of meeting Nicah and Paula, Melissa while setting up our booth. Very helpful!
David Lochner, the president at Benartex Fabrics was thoughtful and brought the gentlemen that make our fabrics in Korea to the booth for Stephanie and I to meet. It was very humbling and touching. They had their picture taken in the booth with David and me, and where was my camera so I could get a photo?
Our fabrics and patterns displayed so nicely together, the little owl family melted hearts! The owl pattern will be available soon!
The Little Flower Pocket Top and purse received a wonderful response. Miss Ava (my grandgirl) was the star on the new pattern cover. The World Map fabric was popular, it’s a favorite.
Our booth was backed up to Benartex, and they did a fabulous job displaying Baby Business and In the Nest fabrics made up in beautiful quilts and layette pieces placed in a white crib and vignette. We had lots of traffic back and forth and were introduced to wonderful distributors and shop owners that will be carrying our fabrics and patterns!
And speaking of wonderful neighbors! How fun it was to be next to Laurie Harsh, her son Brian, good natured Barry, sweet Sarah and Megan. We so enjoyed the wonderful and informative FabShop dinner, what a view from the 50th floor ! We loved staying at the Marquette Hilton hotel! Fab Shop group is sharp, has all the tips, news and ideas shop owners need. So grateful for their generous help!
We put together a free pattern and used some of our favorite fabrics from the Baby Business & In the Nest line, along with the soft, minkee blankee fabric
for the quilt backs. Makes all quilts ever so dreamy soft!
The Fat Quarter Shop
always has wonderful photos when they return to market.. I am so grateful they share this on Flickr
for all to see. It’s the next best thing to going to market.
Sew grateful to each of you who helped with this market! Your hands and hearts shine in the work you do!
Blessings & Love!
