I’m getting ready for Quilt Market - and I’m so excited about going. Not just because my second line of fabric is debuting (more on that in my next post)… and not just because I get to see all that is new and wonderful in the quilting and fabric world… or that I get to see a bunch of friends (and meet new ones)… I’m so exited because I’ve always always wanted to go to Salt Lake City. And it’s not just because I’ve had a crush on Donny Osmond since I was 10 and have fantasized about running into him there. I’m not LDS, but the temple has been on my I-want-to-visit-list since I was a kid, too. Maybe because I thought it was a castle, and for sure my Prince Donny was in there waiting for me.
Every Quilt Market Pam hosts an imaginary radio show on her blog. Like a farm report - but without the farms. And no reports - more like links. People going to market and making blog posts about market can leave their permalinks to their posts - and people not going can easily find the posts that talks about market.
There have been so many Quilt Markets I’ve attended in my jammies from home via Pam’s KPKM Quilt Market reports. I look so forward to the post whether I’m attending or not. BUT… I’m secretly hoping people will also write market posts who are from SLC and have tips and ideas of things to see and do in SLC: Shops, restaurants, places Donny can be found, points of interest. Hopefully people will sport the KPKM button I made and
lead me to Donny lead us to all the great stuff SLC has to offer! And of course market reports, too.
Pam’s got a big huge secret she recently revealed. I told Pam when I finally got to blab, that I would shout my happiness and excitement from the rooftops. I am now atop my roof! I’ve been waiting for this day forever and am so thrilled and happy! Pam has a gift with fabrics and I’ve been calling her the fabric whisperer since the moment I met her, and have been wanting a line of PKM to have for myself. And now Pam has partnered with Holly Holderman of Lakehouse Drygoods… it’s finally happening! Oh happy day!!!! I love 30’s repos, I love modern fabric, I love cute, I love bright… and now thanks to Pam and Holly… they’ve created a fabric love child for me!

I think I just lost my voice from shouting, but I’m so happy to say out loud… CONGRATULATIONS PAM!!!
