Market Report

Hello from Houston. Have been very busy walking the show floor and seeing wonderful quilts, exciting new fabrics and few new tools that will make our quilting easier and more successful. Hope to have some pictures of these to show you later in the week.

This sculpture is across from the convention centre where Quilt Market and Festival are held. It is very unique - haven't managed to get across the street yet to see if there is a write up about it but hope to do that later in the week.

I joined a couple of other Canadian designers (Jean Boyd and Pippa Moore) and Patti and Hanya from Northcott Fabrics for dinner at the Benihana steak house tonight. My friend Peggy has also travelled to Houston with me to check out the shows. We were joined by two ladies who own quilt shops in southern California. We had a great dinner and enjoyed the show from our chef.

I'm taking a class tomorrow morning with Caryl Bryer Fallert and then it's back to the show floor for the last few people I need to see in the afternoon. Must try to get across the street to see that sculpture close-up!
