More Preparations for Quilt Market

Posted on May 4th, by Amy in Modern Basics, sewing. 13 comments

In preparing for my first Market experience, and promoting Modern Basics, I’ve got a few things to get together this week!

Monday afternoon I picked up my quilts that had been hanging at Seasons of Home last month.  Then yesterday I added all the labels and sewed two sleeves, for the quilt that will be hanging in Martingale’s booth (#1200).  I’ll finish the hand-stitching over the course of the next few evenings.  I even packed the ready quilts into suitcases, so I don’t have to refold, or take the time to do it later!  Why do it later, when I can do it now?

If you will be at Market my scheduled events include:

Thursday Schoolhouse – 4:20pm

Saturday Book Signing – 10:00am

Sunday Book Signing – 10:00am

Beyond that…tweet me, or email me and we will try to connect!

Many blessings to you ~

    Is this quilt market for just vendors or can everybody come to see things. Are the dates 13-15 May? I put those dates on my calendar but then wasn’t sure if just a regular quilter can go to market. I live in the area (Tooele) so can come anytime.

    I so wish that I could attend the market!! But since I don’t have a business I can’t attend…I am planning on creating a pattern line, do you know of any way that I could attend? I could really use the break from everything?
