See You Next Week!

I am getting my quilt market schedule and assignments ready for my six-count-’em-six gracious assistants, so I will have to bow out of posting this week. Do follow me on Facebook and Twitter for live-from-Houston Quilt Market updates Friday-Monday, and we’ll get posting with the usual in-depth coverage starting Tuesday. I’ll leave you with some tidbits:

Sew Mama Sew posts a peek at Denyse Schmidt’s next Freespirit collection on their Facebook page.

Djerba Goldfinger of Reprodepot will have a fabric collection with Spotlight in Australia. Aww man, what about us?!? I will have to set up a trade with one of my Australian friends …

Daisy Janie will have not-one-but-three collections to debut at Quilt Market — see them on her blog!

Weeks Ringle’s Designing Modern Quilts class is now live on Craftsy.

    Thanks for the shout-out about my Craftsy class. Hope you’ll be able to get a glimpse of our Passport line which will be at Andover on paper, as well as see Victorian Modern in fabric. We’re in #414 and have Passport printouts as well. Happy Trails.Passport is in stores in spring 2013.

  2. Let me know if you need help getting the Reprodepot prints. We have one range in already! Happy to help you find them.

    Kim, I look forward to running into you somewhere on the market floor. I’m sure we can locate each other by our Tweeting. It will be like Twitter Orienteering. “Twitterteering?”
