If you may recall, I recently spilled the beans about a project I have been
slaving away working on behind the scenes this year - my new baby Stitcherie.
I had planned on attending more than one day, but as per my usual luck, scheduling got in the way and I was only able to attend Saturday. I sure am thankful that Fall Quilt Market takes place in my city, or else things may have been a little dicey.
Being a veteran Quilt Festival attendee every fall for years now, I thought I would be prepared for Market. There are no words for the exhaustion I still feel today writing this post. Not only am I physically worn out, but I had no idea how mentally draining it would be.
I am still trying to wrap my head around every one I saw, met, talked to, and hung out with. Notice I am focusing on people here. Yes, Market is a fabric utopia, but the special memories will always be about the people.
In one day, I met so many people I respect and admire. I had no idea how overwhelming this would feel. I met fabric designers, bloggers, pattern designers.
I am having to restrain myself from name-dropping, but trust me, if you follow them on Instagram, I think I met them. It was a dream.
I wish I had photos to share of everyone I met, but like I said, it was so overwhelming, so I only have a few shots from early in the day before things got really crazy busy.
As for the fabric, I have that covered. Stay tuned for a post full of fabric goodness!
