Off To Market

'15_market_minnIt’s that time of year again. Quilt Market opens tomorrow morning in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

In years past, I would have already been there. The booth would have been well on it’s way to being set up, the floor would have been laid and the boxes of books brought in, unpacked and put neatly into racks. The quilts would have all been hung and we would have been tired beyond all reason.

This year is different. Very different. This year I am packing up my red Rav 4 (Miss Scarlett) with my little duffle bag, my small suitcase and my sewing bag that has handwork tucked inside. That’s it. No boxes of props, no quilts, no signage. Just me and my clothes.

Instead of setting up a booth, I am going to go and see what’s new. I’m going to talk to all the friends I missed seeing in Houston last year and I am finally going to be able to walk the entire show at a leisurely pace.

I am really excited about going. I’m even more excited about being able to see what all is new and having the time to stop and look at the quilts that catch my eye.

So, if you’re going to market, I will see you there tomorrow. If you’re not, I’ll be posting some pictures on facebook and, hopefully here as well.

And when I get back home, I will have some fun news to share with you. It’s all hush-hush right now but I can talk about it when I get back.

Curious, aren’t you!
