To Market, To Market, To Market We Go!

The air is getting cooler, the leaves are starting to turn and that can only mean one thing - Fall Market!

There is still so much to do and we are busy little bees getting things ready to go!  Scott is digitizing as fast as his fingers can go; Gary is editing, proofing, and making sure all of our new products are in house and ready to pack; Michelle has restocked our business cards, updated our facebook page, sent out our newsletter and I am stitching, quilting, designing and trying to stay calm!  There are still kits to cut, shipments to arrive, and a mock set up to complete, but I am starting to see the finish line and I'm getting very excited!!

If you have plans to attend the International Quilt Market (Oct 27-29) and/or International Quilt Festival (Nov 1-4) in Houston, we will be at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Booth 956.  Stop by and see us.  We have an entire booth full of all new designs!

We are celebrating Turning Twenty's 10th birthday with a NEW Turning Twenty book!  The 9th book in the series (can you believe it?!) - Hope Chest Treasures introduces our new beginner-friendly "on point" setting as well as the familiar straight setting.  You can take this pattern and use it with any of the other books in the Turning Twenty series and create completely new looks for every quilt!  Happy Birthday!!!

We will have new redwork designs for both hand and machine embroidery AND we are so excited to be introducing a NEW book series!!!!  It's TOP SECRET, so be sure to stop by the booth and check it out! We will post pictures of everything new from the market floor, so stay tuned.

We will also be at schoolhouse to introduce all of our new designs.  Our time slot is 11:00 - 11:30 AM in room 362D.  If you are attending schoolhouse, we'd love to see you!

Coming to Sample Spree??  We'll be there too.  Table 56.  Oh yes, we'll also be at Preview Night!  Be sure to say "Hi" while you're there!

Whew!  A lot to get ready for.  Gary, Michelle and I hope to see you in, I'd better get back to work!
