Headed to Houston!

I’m packing my bags and getting ready to head to Houston for International Quilt Market and International Quilt Festival tomorrow! Quilt Market is the trade show that comes before Festival, and it is only open to quilt shop owners and professionals in the quilting industry. It’s where everyone in the quilting industry goes to show off their new fabrics, notions, tools, sewing machines, and any product sold to quilters. I’m going to market my new book and DVD. 

My plan is to blog each night to tell you about what I’ve seen and heard. If you can’t be at Market, please come along with me on my journey! I always bring home some loot, too, and will be doing some give-aways … so you won’t want to miss it!
