the people post.

I decided to do a people of market post.
 My only problem is that I don't have pictures of everyone :(

Here is Kathy and her book signing for her newest Martingale book Strip Smart Quilts which is about to be released and can be pre-ordered through amazon.
This is an excellent book that shows just a fraction of the ways a Creative Grids ruler can be used.
A snap shot with Joyce and Sarah.
I am over the moon happy that they were able to come to Utah and quilt market. One of the very first times that I met Joyce she mentioned that she didn't know if she'd ever get to a quilt market. 
An low and behold, a year later here they are.
I know they had a wonderful week and I was happy to meet up with them near the Moda area before their appointments.
Ooo I met Natalia of Piece N Quilt. That was one of my BIG to do's of this market.
Stephanie is also pictured, she and were roommates with Sherri and we had met in Minneapolis last spring market. It was a good reunion for us too.
An finally....
Here's group shot with me, Stephanie, Heather, {RaeAnn's friend - sorry I don't remember her name :( }Sherri, and RaeAnn.
There were so many others that met....
pictures were taken with other cameras and I don't have copies of those.

I also met Shari of Doohikey Designs, Jacquie of Tall Grass Prairie Studios, Jessica Levitt, John Adams, Doe, Jennifer of Sugar Stitches, Sharon Red Geranium Cottage/Daisy Quilt Cottage and her friend Nancy No Blog, Bonnie of Cottonway, Konda of Moose on the Porch Quilts, Amy S. of Dairy of a Quilter,Vanessa of V. and Co., Lori Holt Bee in My Bonnet, Nanette of Freda's Hive and many more. I somehow didn't get pictures though, drat!
At any rate..despite market being 'biz ness" we managed to have a darn good time and I made many more friends in the process.
I'd like to say that this is my last market post..
but I still haven't shown you my sample spree 'stuff'...
so I hope to have a grip on that soon.
In the meantime I am working my normal day job, working at nights on future projects, planning tutorials, and being a mom on the side!
After market is busy busy for me....

ah <3 it was so much fun to finally meet you too!!!!! I can't wait til next time we get to meet! Maybe we can actually do lunch or something! :)

So fun to see the "people post!" I thought I had more "people" pictures than I do...but I guess sometimes we were just so excited to see and meet people that pictures were forgotten. I still don't feel completely recovered...but today is my last day at the college (and all 26 research papers are graded), so maybe I can get my house organized soon (still haven't completely unpacked, and that's so unlike me)! Market was sure amazing, though! Miss talking to you!

Linda said...

Thanks for keeping us up to date. Wish I could have been there in person!

Sandy said...

Thanks for sharing all of the market goodies for us to see and connect faces with their blogs. Glad you had a good time....yes, reality does have a way of taking over again, doesn't it!

Well obviously you didnt take a picture of me and you. :( But I sure got a lot of you. lolol
It was so nice meeting you at market. You are so nice and not one of those stuffy people who think they've hit it big and can't talk to us anymore.
Just sayin.
