First I will start with our booth and newest pattern release! Letters to Santa stole the show for us. It is available as both a regular applique pattern as well as an embroidery CD where it will sew it in the hoop for you. To read more about it check out my website. This is available as a downloadable file also.
I actually digitized my grandkids letters to Santa and added them to the quilt. If you don't have this capability I offer you alternative ways to personalize your quilt with letters, recipes etc.
During Market which is the wholesale side of this show and is held before Quilt Festival a lot is going on as vendors are there for the shops.
This is Sample Spree, I am sure you have all heard the stories of hundreds of women waiting in line to get a sneak peek of new fabrics and products for their shops. It also allows them to buy things before anyone else so they can make samples etc. It was a great Sample Spree!

I was able to have dinner with MJ, my coaching client who was able to attend Market this year and really took Houston by surprise, she is a definite rising star, and Rayna Gillman, an amazing teacher and fiber artist!! Rayna was there supporting her new book release!! I will be doing a blog hop in the next week where you can win her free ebook! Look for that on November 21st.
Below are a few of the beautiful art pieces at the show, these are just a small sampling of what was there. The Cherrywood Fabrics Van Gogh show was wonderful and here is the video, sorry its so jumpy, it was so hard to walk and film, I need a stabilizer for my phone.
