Houston. And so it begins...

27 Oct 2008

Blog woes:
I apologize for not posting over the weekend. If anyone has a Typepad account, you may know they're having lots of technical problems this month as they switch to a new server. I'm praying to the blog gods that they get this fixed soon so I can post from the show floor this week. In the meantime, some pictures of set-up day and day 1. Do you recognize the guy in the last shot? I have some news about him I can share a bit later!

Before


After



Fabric 2.0

Oh my gosh! Isn't that the winner of Project Runway in 2005? Does he have a new line of clothing?

Wish I were there! (maybe next year...) I just saw the display on the QA website of the "go green" pieces...every one is excellent. hmmmm...looks like you need to do a "green" book of them (or are you already working on it secretly? :-))

Oh, yay... it's Jay from Project Runway! What a great looking booth, and what fun that he's at Houston. Your booth... from chaos to creative. Very nice. Enjoy your trip.

OMG. I love Project Runway. I hope Jay is there for Festival. I can't wait till tomorrow night! My mind is definitely not on work, just 10 or so blocks from the George R Brown Convention Center in a big office building!

Just got the latest ish of CPS--you've outdone yourself again! It's miraculous. Thanks for the oodles of inspiration and introduction to a host of delightful artists! Those snowpeople gracing the cover are too sweet for words.

Sharon, if you want to send me some ATCs in an SASE c/o Quilting Arts, Box 685, Stow, MA, 01775, I'll send some from the show to you. (We always come back with a bag of them for the next venue.) Not a problem!

I've never been to the Houston event, but I'll definitely try to go next year after seeing all the yummy stuff in your photos! Can we see Jay's fabric collection on any websites? Have a great time Pokey!

Did you see any uber-fabulous new products on the show floor? Just curious. Those of us who couldn't go have to live vicariously through those who attended!
