Oh Houston, how we love thee so;). At long last… it’s the Houston Quilt Market recap. I had fully intended to get this out last week, but somehow, I’d forgotten how exhausting Market can actually be! Pellon® had an absolute blast at the trade show this year. We met new and old friends, ogled all of the fabulous new fabric lines launched, marveled over the creative booths, filmed some demo videos, taught some classes (yay Darlene!), introduced some exciting new products AND re-introduced some of our favorite go-tos in the world of interfacing and batting. We ate great food, I had the best martini of my life and we all walked miles and miles. Isn’t that all what Quilt Market is all about?
This year, we printed up free project sheets featuring some of our fabulous project designers. We also put together a brand new display for our batting. Oh, and did you get a sample of Fabric Magic™?

I had the pleasure of working with 6 of our amazing project designers on a special video project. We’re not ready to release all of the details, but thought you’d enjoy a little sneak peek all the same:
A trio of panty packs!
I know we saw a few of you at Darlene’s Take & Teach classes each morning. I was impressed with the turnout and had such a wonderful time talking with attendees. Darlene is a pro and I always come away feeling as though I’ve learn something new. On Sunday & Monday mornings, special guest Brenda Miller and her friend Lisa stopped by to talk about different types of bags, popular interfacings and more. Her designs were a big hit and I’d encourage you all to check out her website: Among Brenda’s Quilts.
Lots more eye-candy is coming soon:). Stay-tuned!
