Travel to the center of the Quilt Market universe

October 4th, 2009

I don’t know if it’s because I’m lazy… or because sometimes I can’t even find the glasses on the top of my head… but come Quilt Market time, I always get frazzled and razzled trying to find all the blog posts about quilt market. Pam has always done a great (and HILARIOUS) job of not only posting about market… but posting about who’s blogging also.

Apparently it’d be really rude of me ask everyone who makes a market post to email me the link.  Luckily Pam has set up her own little “radio show”.  Radio KPKM is like community radio… but in text - all the who, what and where all in one place.   And no one’s gonna out you on-air for leaving a crusty casserole dish behind after the recent community potluck down at the grange.

So now anytime anyone makes a market post on their blog, all they have to do is go to the Quilt Market blogging center of the universe (aka Pam’s “Radio Free PKM“) and add their Market permalink into Mr. Linky.  The more one posts, the more often they get to say hello to Mr. Linky.  It’s like everyone is practically emailing me!

Even though I won’t be at Market,  I plan on a Market report of my own.  A WYWO at market post - and I plan on building a tent in the living room with chairs and a big quilt and I’ll tweet and facebook and eat cupcakes with all my other Non-Market-Going friends and hope you all will join me in making WYWO Market posts… grabbing a button… and enjoying the fun at Radio Free PKM.  And I say we NMG peeps have a potluck.  I’ll bring the cupcakes!

    You are so clever! Just added the button you made for Pam and blogged about it. It’s cold & rain here this week… how about some homemade potato soup for the NPM peeps potluck? One of these years I’ll have to make my husband skip hunting so I can actually go to festival… I used to live there so I wouldn’t have to even worry about getting lost without nav!

  9. The fabulous pam allegedly said:

    Your party sounds fun. Reminds of the olden days when we tipped the chairs over so we’d have a Tarzan house and then used the sofa cushions for a comfy seat. I’m not sure if I can sit on the floor anymore though, guess I’ll go to market. xop

  10. The fabulous Angela Yosten allegedly said:

    You girls ROCK! I am tuned in and will make sure I keep you up to date with the things I see/do/hear at market!

  11. The fabulous Camille allegedly said:

    Another NMG here, wishing I was going at the moment! Grr… SO, I was wondering if you could demand that the sneak peeks end and SHOWING the actual projects begins?? You have more power than I do. They might actually listen to you.

    Potluck? I’ll bring the Route 44’s.

  12. The fabulous Camille allegedly said:

    You know, I like to leave comments on your blog JUST so I can see “The fabulous Camille allegedly said”. Isn’t that sad?? Hey, I’m a mom- I need all the self esteem boosts I can get!

  18. The fabulous jen duncan allegedly said:

    I, too like to see myself called ‘fabulous’ every time I leave you a comment. :-) I’ll def be at the party. Just not sure yet what I’m bringin’.

  19. The fabulous Pam allegedly said:

    HZ you don’t fool me, you are writing this from the trunk of the road trip car, aren’t you? Sorta like a investigative reporter. Okay, so maybe not. I will see you in the tent. I’m bringing in and out burgers, so put in your orders! NMG Pam in Chico

  20. The fabulous Jen in NY allegedly said:

    It’s been cupcake city around here lately…what with both kids’ birthdays during the past week and a half. So I’ll bring another treat…maybe margaritas? Oh yes!

  21. The fabulous Candace allegedly said:

    This is brilliant, Monica! I’ll bring my fabulous crockpot nacho dip! We can bring flashlights and make hand puppets in the tent while we wait for new reports!

  22. The fabulous Kathi D allegedly said:

    Did Pam forget to pick you up too? I just popped back in the house for a minute. Still sitting on the porch with my handbag on my lap in case she remembers and comes back for me.

    Gotta go, I think I hear a car coming!

  23. The fabulous Shawn allegedly said:

    Thank you Monica, I can’t wait to see what’s happening at the market….. I wanna go…

  24. The fabulous Mary Ann/Ca allegedly said:

    Well I’m NMG either but I’d love to hang out in the tent. I can bring a Fall quilt and the worlds best pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. Save me a spot!

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