We got a great idea at quilt market for the Steady Betty pressing system. They were suggesting using it for your needle point or embroidery to keep your hoops from moving. Such a wonderful idea I just thought I would pass it on. HAPPY QUILTING and please visit us at www.fabricquiltshop.com .

Don't forget to take a look at our new kits of MARMALADE and COLLECTIONS-WARMTH on our website and we've also added the line BUDDING BEAUTIES with great looking Hydrangeas.

Quilt Market With Mary Jane

Quilt market was so nice and such wonderful people. One of the people we got to meet was Moda's new designers Mary Jane. She is so sweet and down to earth. She lives in Idaho and does organic farming. She is a great writer and now designs fabric. We have ordered her line which will arrive next year it is called Glamping. A combination of glamour and camping. I managed to take a few pics of her with a camper which are really great. She lives in a camper, not this small and has a bed and breakfast that she runs. Such a busy lady but still has time to visit and talk with everybody.
Yes that is me with Mary Jane. She was so wonderful about taking pictures. The fabric you see is all part of her new line of fabric and it is wonderful. The whole inside of the camper is decorated with it.
This is so nice they even added a BBQ grille so it looks like she is cooking .

Quilt Market

I hope everyone that went to Quilt Market had a great time. It was wonderful and I wish you all could go. There are such nice people and so many new ideas for us as a shop owner. MODA was great. They had a dinner for all the shop owners on Saturday night and the theme was western so they had a mechanical bull. It was a blast. I will post pictures soon. First I would like to congratulate MODA for winning best booth. They did such a great job and have such hard working people helping them. HAPPY QUILTING

She just loves this and now wants a real pumpkin to carve so she can make it look like this. HAPPY QUILTING www.fabricquiltshop.com
