We made it! Yesterday we managed to get through our first day at our very first Quilt Market ever. We're going to do a much more detailed recap in later posts, but I wanted to share a few quick highlights from our first day.
We gave a 15 minute presentation at Schoolhouse (the day of short presentations for shop owners about new and exciting products) all about our book Contain It! English Paper-Pieced Accessories.
We attended a handful of other Schoolhouse presentations, learning a lot not only about upcoming products, but also a little more about what it's like on the industry side of quilting.
We went to sample spree, which is the opportunity to purchase fabric from upcoming lines of both fabric and patterns at wholesale prices. It was chaotic and wonderful all at the same time.
Today and tomorrow we're giving two more demos at the AQS Publishing booth, plus walking the expo hall to see what kind of trouble we can get into!
And now onto the link-up!
