Well, a few of us have returned from Quilt Market in Houston. The Marketing group arrived in Houston last Wednesday to set up and prep for our biggest trade show of the year! International Quilt Market in Houston is an industry convention for shop owners to buy fabrics, notions, and patterns for their shops. They come from all over the world and visit exhibitors like us to see our collections, network, and get inspired! It’s a great event with lots of color and creativity!!!
Above, see how color & creativity SHINE in our Block of the Month quilt “Festival of Stars” designed by Pine Tree Country Quilts and our “Stained Glass” quilt designed by Cyndi Hershey. Both feature our new Ombre Scroll fabric. These are just being shown at Market and will be available to shops in March 2016 – I know… “Patience is a virtue”. 🙂
While at market, most of the companies meet with peers and also with potentially new customers, magazine editors, book publishers and the like. Our team has been busy! We were especially excited for this market as we have a completely new booth! This market was the launch of our new booth styling – hard walls with plenty of room to hang and pin quilts/fabric as well as a space for creating visual vignettes!
Speaking of vignettes, our licensed artist/designer, Janet Wecker Frisch had her own section that she beautifully decorated to show off her collection, Sewing Seeds II which will be available in stores in March 2016.
And… if the décor wasn’t impressive enough, she and Jo Packham, founder of “Where Women Create” got together for an Issue signing. The Winter 2016 issue features Janet’s studio and gives a glimpse into her creative world.
That was just a snippet of Market, we’ll blog again soon to share more with you!!!
