As promised, my video coverage of quilt market. This was fun, but a little tricky. I kept forgetting that I would be posting these online and kept rambling on about my sexy bed (see Amy's video) and raging PMS (to Joanna) I suffered through before market.
The rocker? That would be David Butler. I would love to give my critique of the band, but Dustin took the cd from me when I got home and he hasn't given it back! But I checked out the band's my space page, and they seem pretty darn groovy. So very cool - check 'em outl.
Here is my video of my booth, I just kind of wanted to film these in a way that would make people feel they got to be there and walk around themselves. If you suffer from vertigo, my apologies. Some of these video's are a little jumpy!
Amy shares her inspiration for Love (which I LOVE - how many times will that be said in the collections life span?) and chats a bit about her upcoming projects. I ask her if she has any intention to start a blog and the response was not what I expected! Fun things to look forward to from her!
My sweet friend Anna- have I ever chatted about how much I like this chick? She's so lovely to spend a little time with. I wish there was more time to really hang out at these events, but I'll take the stolen bits of time twice a year I suppose. :) I got to squish Romans legs and meet her oldest, Juliana and the lovely redheaded Allie.
My lovely friend Joanna, who lost her voice. Again. We have a little rant on the joys of pattern drafting, the wonders of supportive husbands and why she won't let me and Camille come visit her. Hmph.
Miss Patty, Miss Patty.. How fun it is to be in the business with her. Have I ever mentioned that Patty was the first person, after my family, that I told of my contract with Michael Miller? Yeah, we've been friends for a long time and I'm thrilled to see the success she's having!
The impeccable Paula Prass. When Paula and I first met over email, she wrote that she was going to sit down and read one of my emails with a nice piece of pumpkin pie. It made me smile, as if MY email were a good read or something. I doubt Paula even remembers that, but every time I see her, I have a craving for pumpkin pie. Her booth was gorgeous, she is delving into patterns, catch the sneaks in the video.
Miss Chelsea has done something so sweet-she has designed a pattern with NieNie in mind and named it "The Nie Nie Skirt". A portion of each sale of the pattern will go to Stephanie and her family. So touching. Chelsea is a long time friend also and I love catching up with her!
The sweet and enjoyable Pillow & Maxfield gals. Nowhere to link them! Girls, online presence needed here please! Blogland would love to get to know you! These gals are so much fun, and super talented to boot!
That's about it for now. I had an email from Melanie the other day and she won one of the the Meadowsweet fat quarter bags and is giving it away in chunks on her blog! So many of you have contacted me since market with requests for one (I have no control over how many are made, sorry!) so this would be a great chance to win it.
Be back soon-
