We had the nicest booth neighbors at Quilt Market this year! So nice that it was a constant temptation to wander across the aisle and chat when things got slow, and more than once I realized I had customers looking around my empty booth. Across from us was another husband-and-wife team, Chris and Heidi from Noble Notions, who design and sell various tools for quilting and sewing, like finger tip grips and quilt clamps. Right next door was the very popular Mon Amie Jewelry, and kitty-corner from us was the fabulous Hemma Design. Kathy McGee, Hemma’s owner and designer, was a co-worker of mine when we both worked as designers for Target in Minneapolis. It was great to see her again, and her Scandinavian-influenced patterns are just adorable! The booth was bright and cheerful – as you can see in the photo, below – and very busy. I’m excited to get my hands on some of those patterns myself!
