Quilt Market Part 2

This is just half - thats right, half of the vendors at Quilt Market. Talk about overwhelming!! I did my best to see everything and I'm pretty sure I did. It took me 3 full days but mission was accomplished. Another goal I had while I was there was meeting my most favorite designers. I couldn't help but get in a picture with a few of them.... Joel Dewberry. His stuff is so amazing and he is so down to earth and friendly. And apparently pretty tall - or ah, I'm just really short. Here is his website if you want to take a gander.

Next is Heather Bailey who is Laura Gunn's (Friday girl and BFF) sister in law. Talk about a talented family. Her designs are so inspiring and she too is incredibly friend. Here is her link.

Amy Butler. Who doesn't love Amy Butler. She has been a household name for years. It was such an honor to meet her. And just as a side note, she is bending down and I'm on my tippy toes. Again, not sure if shes just really tall or I'm just that short. I'm beginning to think the latter is true. Her link.

There of course are more designers that I had the priviledge of meeting. Its amazing to be surrounded by women (and men) who bring out this creative drive in you. They were all so encouraging and seemed so excited for me to be opening up a fabric shop. The industry is full of friendly, supportive folks. I'm so glad I shop will be better for it.
