Market/Chapter 3 ~ Triskit’s Meet & Greet

May 28th, 2008

I’m handing the keyboard over to Triskit today - she’ll be guest blogging. Who knew she could type. But then… who knew Mimi could type. - Monica

Welcome to Quilt Market! Best thing about Market, are not the quilts, the patterns, the books, the inspiration, the fabric, the pretty colors… it’s the wonderful quilting peeps! Come on - come and meet my new pals… Quilt Market
PS… I’m sitting on a Jingle Jolly runner mum made for Holly’s eyecandy Lakehouse Dry Goods booth, with Holly’s darling new cupcake fabric. More at Holly’s booth in a bit.

One of the first people I met was Brenda of Acorn Quilt & Gift Company. She’s just as sweet as she looks and couldn’t be any nicer. I wish mum had a shot of the cute, cute Janet (from Team Acorn) too - but she goofed up somehow with her camera. Brenda is responsible for getting us (Pam, Elizabeth, me and mum) into Sample Spree early. To work. Right. To work. Here is Brenda in her darling booth. Mum bought gorgeous happy wool and patterns there - and she was sporting drool drops on her shirt. Brenda named my doggie on my dress Bailey. Is that not too sweet!

Next stop Bunny Hill Designs to visit The Anne’s (Anne Bryson on the left, Anne Sutton on the right). I fell in the with The Anne’s… both are just too stinkin’ sweet and Anne’s booth was incredible - so much so it won a blue ribbon for Best Single Booth!

A common dilemma about me visiting a booth, was how the models wanted to be photographed with me…

Oh! Like this!

Here’s mum’s friend Sally of Maw-Bell Designs (Sally’s last name is Bell, and her partner sister’s last name is Maw… too cute, eh!). Mum ran into Sally at Sample Spree, and I over heard Sally ask my mum, “can you keep a secret for 8 hours?”. I heard mum say “yes”, but I knew she was fibbing. Not 8 minutes later - I heard mum telling her friends that Sally’s Bell Tower Quiltworks in Corvallis, Montana was going to be featured in the next issue of BH&G’s Quilt Sampler!!! More fun with Sally’s last name… is the name of her shop - which is a former church - and has a bell tower.

Sally’s shop being in the Top Ten came as no surprise to mum… she’s been saying for years it was an “it shop” after her and Auntie Karen went on their Montana quilt retreat via Sally’s shop. Just a little sampling from Sally’s shop…

Speaking of Better Homes & Gardens… FINALLY mum gets to meet the world’s best editors and nicest people ever! Jill Mead and Elizabeth Tisinger of mum’s two very favorite magazines on the planet… American Patchwork & Quilting and Quilts & More. Mum says Jill should wear a cape because she’s a realife superhero.
Quilt Market

Sweet. Sweet. Sweet… Laura and Dianna of From Me to You Quilts
Quilt Market
the fairy Godmothers of quilting and teaching, and perpetuating the love of quilting via their book Quilts! Quilts!! Quilts!!!, teachings, patterns and Empty Spools Seminars at Asilomar. Mum says, “I heart you Laura and Dianna!”

Email and blog pal of mum’s… FINALLY mum gets to meet Cyndi of Stitch Studios IRL. Mum’s in awe of Cyndi’s talents, from pixels to cotton… mum says Cyndi is an It Girl. In the big blog universe of friends all over the world, mum and Cyndi are practically neighbors and should have meet sooner. Must be because Cyndi’s been so busy with her fantastic new book Spotlight on Scraps: 10 Pretty Quilts. Pretty is an understatement! Cyndi even gave mum a signed copy that she cherishes. Mum’s also nuts about Cyndi’s newsletter - and says everyone should sign up for it. It’s like a great box of cereal each month and the free prize inside (quilt pattern) is right on the top - no digging to the bottom or your mom telling you have to finish the box before you can get the toy out.
Quilt Market
Cyndi’s sidekick is her mom (and am kicking mum for forgetting her name)… aren’t those two just the cutest! So much love was oosing from their booth - it made mum miss her own mum down in California. Cyndi has patterns published in magazines too… and mum and Cyndi hope to one day be in the same magazine in the same issue at the very same time! Hint, hint, wink, wink to Jill and Elizabeth.
Quilt Market

Here I am telling Gina all the buzz. This is what I’m whispering… “You should see the darling outfits everyone is wearing over at the Threaded Pear over on Pam’s post about Sample Spree!”…
Quilt Market

Mum couldn’t wait to meet Sandy Klop from American Jane! Mum’s made a lot of things with Sandy’s yummy fabric and it was such a thrill for mum to meet her. What a nice, nice lady!
Quilt Market

Whew… I’m getting tired. All this walking, all this talking, all this typing - maybe just one more visit for today, and more later.

Last visit for today… another It Girl as mum likes to say. Here I am with Sandi, another email and blog pal of mum’s. Sandi has such yummy fabrics that all I want to do is swim in them! Sandi also designs the cutest children’s clothes, and I’m hoping she adds extra, extra, extra, extra, extra, extra small to her sizes. You know. For moi. With the help of Sandi’s uber talented and sweet as pie husband Dustin… Sandi’s both took a big fat honkin’ second place red ribbon for best double booth. It should have been blue, if you ask me. Yeah, I’m seeing a tv show in Dustin and Sandi’s future… on HGTV or TLC - a home improvement/home dec/crafty show with the two of them as hosts and talent. That’s AFTER they come to Astoria, and move here… and then broadcast their show from Astoria. And I can be a donut-dolly - and can make coffee/cocoa and serve donuts to the crew. Sigh.
Quilt Market

Oh look… a place to nap, right here smack dab in the middle of cotton paradise. Thank you Sandi! More from my market meet & greet coming soon… but for now I must nap.

    My goodness, Trisket! You sure get around for having such short little legs! I can’t imagine how exhausted you must have been. I guess that explains the nap! Too bad there were no quilts to be found. They’re so nice to snuggle under while napping. Thanks for introducing us all of your new pals!

    Dustin was standing over my shoulder and we both had a good laugh! And I must thank you for sharing a flattering picture of me-all over blogland are these unflattering icky side views and you are now my official best friend. :)

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
