Minnie Bound!

Am I not supposed to call Minneapolis “Minnie”? I know you make locals bristly if you call San Francisco “Frisco.” If so, please forgive me, I just like nicknames and maybe I’m a little jealous because Austin lacks a snappy one.

Anyway, I’m busy putting the final touches on my Saturday presentation at the Textile Center, and I’m off wayyyy too early tomorrow morning. So except for the Daily Swatch and Anna Maria Horner’s blog tour stop on Friday, I won’t be posting until Monday or Tuesday. I’ll see you next week with all the news from Quilt Market you can stand!

  2. Courtney says:

    Have a fabulous trip and good luck! Wish I could be there for your presentation! Haven’t been to Quilt Market since Oct. of ’08 and miss it terribly. Hopefully this fall I’ll be in Houston!
    Can’t wait for the news!

  3. I’m so happy that you are going to be at the Textile Center, we are coming to see you! Can’t wait!

    Minnie works! As any Twins fan can tell you, Minnie and Paul are old friends in the Twin Cities.

  5. Deborah says:

    Super envious, and hoping you have a great time! See you in Houston, and will be soaking up your posts with glorious salivation.

  6. Nancy says:

    Looking forward to your reports!

  7. Tracy says:

    Other nicknames for Minneapolis – The Minneapple, The City of Lakes, The Mill City, and The Twin Cities (for Minneapolis & St. Paul). Also, as mentioned by Kat (above), we do have Minnie & Paul that are associated with the MN Twins. They are on a large lit sign at our new Twins stadium.

    Have fun in our beautiful city/state. Wish I had time to come to your event.

    Have a great time in Minnesota!
