quilt market recap - the finale

Here we are at the end of the road. In case you missed any of the recap posts I've listed them below for you click through to quickly.

quilt market - getting there

schoolhouse sessions

the booths - 1

the booths - 2

the booths - 3

the booths - 4

the booths - 5

pull down

Lucie and I weren't leaving Houston until Monday evening, so we helped Sarah pull down her booth before we set off. Pull down is manic - everyone is so eager to get out and get out fast. It's also really sad, because once market is over and we all go home I know I won't get to see so many of the people I've spent the year looking forward to seeing. It felt a bit weird driving home from the airport on my own.

Market is mostly amazing because of this lot...

a motley crew

and this big guy. He's like my big brother - quiet, dependable, always there when I need him. I'm like his scrappy little sister - don't mess with my big brother, I'll fly at you like an angry chihuahua. He left a day earlier than the rest of us. It felt a bit flat after that, like something was missing (it was).

which school house?

I rarely go out when I'm home, I'm so not a big party girl. Give me a pot of tea and a night in front of the TV with the husbeast and childerbeasts and I'm a happy girl. Quilt Market is the one time of the year (two times? I guess....) that I'll go out and stay out late and be in bed way beyond my bedtime. Although some of the best times from this trip were when my two roomies and I woke up way too early and sat chatting for a couple of hours in bed. The first night of the show opening (Friday for Spring, Saturday for Fall) is the busiest. We had invites to 5 parties that were all at around the same time. There's a lot of running between venues to show your face before you get a chance to sit and chill out somewhere.

For those of you that asked how you get to Quilt Market, well, it's a trade show so isn't open to the general public. I get in on a Fat Quarterly media pass, so I don't do the 'regular' entry forms. You need to present credentials which is basically business cards and the like. Honestly, there are always plenty of people that go that technically shouldn't so if you really want to go, you'll find a way. I guess that's the best advice I can give.

Should we talk about free stuff?

Let's....


There are a few prizes, which I'll split into 4 different bundles, so there'll be 4 prizewinners.

A FQ stack of (not out yet) Stockholm by Robin Zingone for Kaufman.

Stockholm from Robert Kaufman

6 mini charm packs of new fabrics by Moda and Robert Kaufman

little cuties

2 patterns from Thomas Knauer, a pattern from Patty Young, a summersville needlebook, drinks coasters from DryGoods Design, a little pocket pal sewing kit from Lotta Jansdotter, a pin cushion stitchery kit from Lynette Anderson all popped into a Moda Bake shop tote that I pinched from Lu and contained the snacks Moda give their designers (to keep them from passing out on the booths).

bag o' stuff

Sewing for boys - the fabulous book by Shelly and Karen published by Wiley books

Michelle @ the quilted tortoise said...

ooooh what fun prizes! The telly in t'UK is so good I'd stay home and watch it too! Thanks for all the market updates!

Lynne (Lily's Quilts) said...

I have loved reading every single one of these posts and I have a sort of warm fuzzy feeling that one day I'm going to be sitting in one of those photos - and people are going to see the photo and gasp and say - we didn't know you took a supermodel with you. And I'll say, you silly old things, that's just me, little old Lily Lynne from Lincolnshire. OK it's derbyshire but Lincolnshire sounds better in that sentence. By the way , if I win the giveaway, can I have not one of the prizes listed above but a £1 dog bowl from Wilko.

Miss T said...

I've loved reading about quilt market, so many gorgeous fabrics to look forward to! The dream is to someday go myself, I just need to give up this pesky day job!

Jacqui said...

Thank goodness for blogs who review Quilt Market for all of us who will never go! Of course, if it weren't for blogs like yours I wouldn't know it existed so it's a bit of a circular thingymajiggy there! I've really enjoyed your posts though, I don't know how you can stand to be around so much great fabric and not pass out from excitement!

bakeandsew said...

I have loved all your Quilt Market posts. Kinda feels like I came on the trip with you. Thanks

Reene@Nellie's Niceties said...

Thanks for doing such a thorough market recap. It's great to see what it's like! Very generous giveaway too, thank you. I can't resist commenting here that Lynne is definitely batty and so deserves the £1 dog bowl ;-)

Martha said...

This has been a wonderful bunch of posts! I have read and thoroughly enjoyed every one! Thank you - and fingers crossed!!

Laura said...

Thanks so much for the reports. It's been awesome seeing what's coming and all the lovely fabrics out there.

Dear Miss Ginger Monkey,
Thank you for MY daily posts, thank you for keeping ME informed. Thank you for spending MY money before I've earned it, and thank you for making ME drool all down the front of myself in anticipation of fabrics to come.
I appreciate you spending the money time and energy to do the things I love, and stalking the people I want to see.
In fact, thank you for making your blog, MY market away from market.
Oh, and I guess for sharing with everyone else too! ;-)
Cheers missus,
Belinda.

I've really enjoyed these posts and I'm sad that they've come to an end but I was cheered by the sight of all those prizes - thank you! Oh, and Archie already has at least three bowls so if I win you can still send the Wilko's dog bowl to Lynne the supermodel *w*

Sure quilt market looks like fun but from the posts from the last year or 2 I have to say it looks EXHAUSTING! You must feel like you need a holiday when you get back!

I loved this post about the Market -- what it is like to tear down, and dashing from activity to activity, waking up early (betcha you were excited about the day to come) and chatting with room-mates. I really got a feel for what it must be like to be there, and I thank you!

Camilla said...

I've been -loving- your quilt market posts! So fun - I live in Galveston, just an hour away from Houston, and I SO wish it was open to the public because I'd be there in a heartbeat! That said, thank you so much for hosting the giveaway!
