Promising play by play coverage of the big game...um, Quilt Market seemed like such an easy task. You just juggle an I Phone, I Pad and a twenty pound Nikon while spending thousands of dollars. In heels.
I'm not only not as young as I used to be, but I'm also somewhat inept at electronics. I gave it my best, but about an hour into it I realized I was more concerned with Twittering and Facebooking than I was with ordering fabric for the next six months that would pay my bills and feed my family (not so much that last part, but you get my drift).
Put the electronics away Suzanne and tend to business.
So for those of you who expected great things from me today on Facebook and Twitter, I apologize. For those of you who expect great fabric from Strawberry Patches in the next six months, I know you won't be disappointed. Although fabrics that fit our look where scarce today, we did find some really wonderful things.
Our morning was crazy! Normally I don't schedule first day fabric appointments. We usually like to walk the show and get a feel for what's new before we start ordering. But today started off with back to back appointments. Most running long which made the following ones run late and the whole morning was this crazy game of catch up. Add in trying to remember to stop and take pictures and Twitter and post on Facebook and you have one crazed woman. Lets just say it wasn't a good look for me.
But I know you didn't come here to hear excuses. You came here to see stars so I give you:
The darling Betz White and her new line of organics (which I ordered), Stitch
Here's the ever lovely Amy Butler. It hardly seems fair that she is so tall, talented AND nice. If that all weren't enough her husband now has his own line of fabric under the label
David Butler was busy talking with some people when we were there, but I'm going back to stock him snap a picture of him because ladies, he. is. gorgeous! (I'm not going back for me - it's totally for you my dear blog readers. This is my job and I take it very seriously).
Here's cutie patootie Ann Kelle with her new line (which we bought) Dessert Party
Ann was so charming and modest (does she know what a big deal she is?) She asked about our store and told us how much she loves designing fabric. I'm a huge fan of hers.
Here's Ty Pennington from Extreme Makeover Home Edition
Ty was showing his second line for Westminster Fabrics, Impressions.
This is a new division from Timeless Treasures, Dear Stella. It's designed for the young sewists. Very fresh. Love it.
Here's an old friend
here to announce new Cat in the Hat minkee from Shannon Fabrics.
Well that's is for tonight,.It's close to midnight here in Houston and Stanford just beat SC in triple overtime.
Thank you for taking so long to beat SC. You gave me precious time to write this post before Bill tells me to turn off the darned light.
Encourage one another,
