What Quilt Market Means To Me…

Every October, I look forward to heading to Houston, TX for International Quilt Market.  This is the wholesale market for the quilting industry.  There are lots of reasons to look forward to this fabulously wonderful event, but here are a few that are near and dear to my heart:

Being able to meet the fabulous designers behind all the beautiful fabric that we purchase and see the latest and greatest fabric lines that they have created for us.

Seeing eye catching quilts that have been made with the newest fabric lines.  Some just leave you wanting to go home and make a dozen or so…

Being able to walk around and view all the colorful and delightfully designed booths.

Eagerly anticipating walking the quilt market floor with hundreds of your closest friends.

Meeting up with friends, new and old.

And last but not least, coveting those wonderful things that someday you might have in your own home.

What would you like to see at Quilt Market?

Got to love Quilt Market… Here I come!!
