Quilt Market - SLC

It has been a whirlwind of a weekend here at Quilt Market in SLC. Cathy, Melissa and Kelly my daughter flew in on Wednesday and started to set up the booth while I finished my last day of teaching.
I brought my new book 'Crimson Tweed' and the wool, cotton and silk threads for wholesale ordering here at market. We had a great corner position really close to Renaissance Ribbons who had 20 of Wendy and my new ribbons.
Kelly and Cathy made some great samples showing off the ribbons. Kelly made this button tree and Cathy these wonderful fragrant lavender bags.
I am really excited about the ribbon collection all I see now are wonderful images to incorporate in the ribbons. Edith the owner of Renaissance Ribbons and Sheila who I worked very closely with were delighted with the end results of the collection. I am looking forward to working with both of them in the future.
Here is Valori Wells wonderful booth. She is pictured here with Carolyn. I love Valori's fabric designs. I bought many of them as well as some other fun pieces for my website.
It was wonderful to see all my Australia friends again. We had dinner with Annie and Pete for Hatched and Patched, Jenny, Noel and Samantha from Addicted to Fabric and Jenny for Amitie. I can't wait to return to Australia to teach in 2013.
Sunday evening we all had dinner with Jennifer and Elizabeth from American Patchwork and Quilting and finished off with this wonderful dessert.
I am traveling home today washing my clothes and preparing for Italy. My mom is on her way to Ohio and we will be leaving early on Wednesday morning. Can't wait!

  4. Hi Sue...Just watched your Quilt Show episode and I am so excited. The bullion stitch always baffled me and now I think I've got it! You make it so much easier than looking at a book. Look for me to sign up next year in Tipp City, OH. Sorry I missed it this year.
    I'm gonna order some of your sister's velvet real soon. Wish I had a million dollars!
    Do you sell instruction videos? Thanks for all of your amazing inspiration...Susie Delewese

  7. avere un buon tempo. Enjoyed watching the episode!

  8. Love the new tote embellished with the ribbons!! Pattern?

  9. Sue, I knew those ribbons would look great on a purse, and the little sachets, terrific designs, like fabric, but better and easier to add that spark, you and Wendy amaze me. Going to have to do some shopping. Be safe and enjoy your trip, off to watch the video and take notes.

  10. Thank you for taking good care of my Mumma. That cake looks tasty... and those ribbons, yummm. Cannot wait to have them in store!
    Hope you visit us soon
    xoxo Lucy from Amitie
