|New titles |
|Does he look happy I'm home? |
I love working the Market because I get to talk to so many friends in the industry--I've been going to Market since 1996, haven't missed a year. This time I saw several of the fabric reps I used to work with as the Buyer for Patches & Stitches--they still remember me though it's been more than 10 years since I held that job. And I love getting excited about new fabric and new ideas.
Later this week I'll have more to say about the fabric bundles, and the book titles--but just have to say what a fantastic book Becky Goldsmith has written: The Quilter's Practical Guide to Color, C&T Publishing. I read every word yesterday as I traveled home on two planes and sat on the tarmac for an hour in ATL as we rode out a late afternoon thunderstorm. It is full of practical knowledge for quilters. I have 4 classes planned using this book, I'm calling the series of classes: Color College.
Fall Semester features this beauty:
Time to put this stuff away and get my exercise in for the day. I walked a lot at Market but I ate a lot too. And I wrap up my Quiltmaking 101 class tonight with the 3rd group for this year. Love teaching those beginners!
