2017 Quilt Market is History!


Each year before the witching hour is upon us, the annual Quilt Market takes place.  It is the show for professionals in the field and requires credentials to get into the exhibition space and to the vendor area.  Attendees receive a sneak peak of new releases in fabric, tools, and books.  Kay and I were very pleased to have our book “Pioneer Quilts: Prairie Settlers Life in Fabric – 30 Quilts from the Poos Collection” included in the new releases.  It meant demos, book signings, and schoolhouses…Oh My!
