Pssttt...a little secret

I can't say too much right now.  Well, actually I can't say anything, but the super talented Amanda Herring of The Quilted Fish is saying a few words.   Go check out what she has to say.   It has something to do with me being in a book!!!!  (there goes those exclamation marks again)  Not too much is being said, as Amanda is saving it for Quilt Market.

Twice a year, in the U.S. there is a huge trade show called Quilt Market.  In the fall it is in Houston and in the spring it changes locations.  This spring it is in Kansas City, Missouri.   In case some of you don't know what happens at Quilt Market, I will explain a bit.  

Quilt market is where everyone who is selling something related to quilting goes to show off their new products to store owners/vendors.  The vendors can see what is coming out and place orders.   For example, Riley Blake Fabrics, Moda, Michael Miller etc.  all have booths showcasing their latest lines of fabric coming out.   It is aisles and aisles of booths of great displays and lots of fun.  Their are school house sessions where store owners can listen to particular companies talk about their new products.   It is a closed trade show, which means it is not open to the public.   I see on the website that they have had to add an 'overflow hotel', as so many people have booked rooms to fill up the 3 host hotels.   It sounds like it is gearing up for a grand time.  

It takes place May 18-20, 2012.  Ok, now go and see what Amanda is up to in her market preparations.

Yay Jackie! Amanda sounds really excited about your project too. You may have just designed Market's jewellery trend for the show {grin} Too bad you're not going to demo in person. . . maybe next time! Congrats on another 3D delight.
