Quilt Market 2015…So Many Quilts!

Quilt Market 2015Good Afternoon, Quilters!

I’m back to my desk after several fabulous days at Quilt Market 2015!

WHAT IS QUILT MARKET?
Quilt Market is a trade show for vendors to show their wares– what’s new, what’s hot and all that is timeless to retailers.

AN INVITATION BY SULKY

I was fortunate enough to be asked by Sulky to do demos in their booth…

Why of course, I will…

Who wouldn’t jump at the chance to be surrounded by all-things-and-all people-quilty!

I had the great pleasure of spending booth time with the owner of Sulky, Fred Drexler and the President of Sulky, Jason Prater …Two men with vast knowledge about the entire quilt industry…(though neither of them stitch!)

Here’s a great tidbit from Mr. Prater…”Quilting is a $6 billion/year industry.  To put that into context, the NFL is a $9 billion/year industry!”

SulkyThe best part of the weekend…entire racks of thread to choose from!

Like a kid in a candy store—hardly describes it.

I spent most of the weekend with a new (to me) thread…Sulky 30 wt cotton–in 84 colors!  You will be seeing a lot more of my projects stitched in this beautiful, glossy thread…coming soon!

MODERN QUILTS

There was something for everyone at Quilt Market this year…

Modern is still “on trend”

After I posted on Friday, I promised I’d go back to the Michael Miller booth and get more information on the Lion quilt.  The quilt is called “Jungle Abstractions” by Violet Craft.  The pattern will be available in stores and online on July 1, 2015.  It was a big hit at the show.

The other lion quilt (see above) part of the International Quilt Association exhibit.  “Born Free” by Denise Sargo.
