A bit more Market

A few more shots today. Too tired for much commentary. That post market exhaustion has officially hit me.     … new charm pack pillow pattern. I am in love with the look of my fabrics mixed with linen!     … my favorite corner of the booth, with the beautiful green fruit cart that MODA let me use for my booth. Just love it. Wouldn't mind it in the middle of my living room! How about it Lissa?   xoxoxo Joanna…

From Market, from Market

You know, as opposed to "To Market, to Market…" πŸ™‚ You gotta cut me some slack as I am just a bit slap happy today! So glad to be home after our trip to Salt Lake City and then New York, more on that later. But for now, I thought I would start to share some of the pics of my booth. Starting with a bundle of the new collection, Butterscotch & Rose. It is a warmer, fall line inspired by a trip to Sonoma Valley in the wine country. Its a bit more of a traditional line with a good mix of florals, little prints and my favorite geranium print that I can't wait to use on something for our home. Don't know what yet! I'll let you know as soon as I figure it out. Our booth theme was Country…

Its Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas…

As you may have noticed, we have been a bit on the quiet side around these here parts. We have been doing a series of specials and sales through our newsletter these past few weeks and that has kept us just a bit busier than expected [btw, you really ought to sign up if you haven't already].  But also, we have been purposefully trying to slow down this holiday season and to not do as much so that we might enjoy the meaning and the wonder of this time of year.  I have found that its much easier to say that than to do it, by the way! But we're working on it! So I am happy to share that our home is now finally more or less decorated with some of my favorite little decorations. Plans are made and gifts are being wrapped…

Home From Quilt Market

I'm home. Which means that I am officially on couch vacation for at least another day or maybe two. This is my favorite place to be after I return from Quilt Market– for those of you who have been following me for a long time you might remember that it is specifically the left corner of my couch LOL!! I don't move from it for a few days and can only accomplish what I can do from there. Which believe it or not, is quite a lot given them my entire life is on my laptop and iphone these days. Let's just say that we eat a lot of takeout the week following Market. But in case you are just a little bit worried, the office staff are sending out your orders like crazy so even though i look like a bump on…

Market Day #2

  Market Day #2 is done and we are watching the World Series in the Lobby Bar. Let me explain. After a full day of selling, talking, business appointments, schmoozing [such an official term I know] and generally "moving and grooving" [what does that mean exactly anyway?] we have finally taken off our shoes… literally…, put up our hair and are sitting down. Believe me, the term "sitting down" has a whole new meaning when you have been standing up in dress clothes and high heels for 10 hours. I know, I know, life is so hard here at Market. I am not complaining. Much. Business was great today. We only have a very few catalogs left so if you are a store and haven't come by yet, you might want to in the morning because I can tell that we will…

Quilt Market: Day 1

Hello Everyone! First day of Market is all done and we have just wrapped up the biannual MODA party!  It was the most fun we have had in a long time. MODA hosted the party at the Minute Maid Ballpark here in Houston and as always they went all out on all accounts. Great venue change! Its conveniently located 2 blocks from the convention center where Quilt Market is hosted so it couldn't be a more perfect location. Amazing Texas BBQ, good friends including MODA reps, designers, customers and mill reps and a really fun country western/old rock band made for a wonderful evening full of dancing.  Day 1 of Market was fabulous and the new line, Buttercup, has been wonderfully received by our customers. The brand new patterns are flying off the racks and at this point I couldn't even tell you…

More Market… can you stand it?

I got so excited to "introduce" you to all my new goodies, that I somehow managed to forget my general Market post. Now those of you who know me, know that I don't get out much. At home too :-), but in this case, out of my booth at Market! Often on the last day of the show when things slow a bit down, I get a little reprieve and take some shots at least of the MODA booths and hopefully a few others. This year was even worse.  First it was really so much busier than we expected… which is really not a problem at all, just a problem if you want to wander around Market at your leisure and take photos of everything that is beautiful. And second, I got to leave a bit early this time around and my dear hub broke…

A Little Tour

Its always so embarassing for me to watch myself on film or even hear my voice recorded. Isn't it funny how we hear and see ourselves so differently than we actually are? Anyway, even though I personally have to cringe and look away :-), for those of you who haven't had enough of Market yet, I thought you might like a live view of the booth… Back to introductions later. Talk to you soon…
