Friday at Market
Friday at Quilt Market
How's this for a Market treat?
Or maybe this cutie?
Even better how about some fruit, nice and healthy. All I can say about the first three pictures is Pin Cushions...they are sooo hot so keep your eyes open in the store.
Meet Karen and Jackie...Karen is the designer behind the KariePatch Designs..don't you think her chickens are just too cute? Jackie, her helper, lives in Manassas and is one of our customers...by they way, we'll be getting that chicken pattern in soon along with a few of her other cut ones.
Here's Carrie Nelson from Miss Rosie's Quilt Company and no Rosie wasn't with her. Carrie has designed six new Schnibbles and we can't wait to share. The watermelon and strawberry pin cushion are her designs and Jackie won the strawberry and that should arrive in June, I promise to post that info as soon as it arrives.
Meet Lynette Anderson, Lynette is from Australia and does some beautiful hand embroidery work, check out her blog at Lynette Anderson Designs.
Okay, I know this picture is fuzzy but here is Karen Snyder with another one of her mystery men..shhhhhhhh don't tell her husband.
Market has been busy, lots to see and do. We've been real busy checking out new pattern company's, ordering buttons and some really cool wide rick-rack. We've picked up the new Buggy Barn book and Heather Mulder Peterson's new book & pattern and we're bringing a few back with us for ya'll to see. We're also bringing back some great patterns from a new pattern company called Swirly Girls Design, the girls are actually Susan & Christine from Quilters Corner in Midlothian Va. Besides the pictures above we have had a few sightings...let me see, who have we seen...Eleanor Burns, Alex Anderson, Kaffe Fassett, Pat Sloan (yes that Pat Sloan), Mr. Pat Sloan, I'm sure we'll be seeing more tomorrow...so stay tuned...
we're off to bed, gotta have our beauty sleep...
