After a good night of sleep, we are ready for Day 2. We've looked over the literature we picked up yesterday and will place orders today.
One of the first sights that greeted us this morning was this stylish pair of shoes......
........one has to wonder whether what this person is thinking.......does she realize she will walk miles today?!
I, on the other hand, am in my comfortable shoes ready to tackle the day.
Crabapple Hill's booth was beautiful (as were her new designs).
We had appointments with fabric reps today. Do you see the young man standing in this photo? He's the president of Andover Fabrics....yep.....that young man.
Sometimes the fabric companies don't have time to get the fabric printed on fabric so the only way we get to see it is on paper. This is a very pretty print from Blue Hill Fabrics.
Fortunately, in most cases we get to touch and feel the fabric. There's no comparison between touching and feeling fabric and touching and feeling a piece of paper.
It was so nice to meet Laural of Simply Put. We carry almost all her designs (yes, we bought more!). Talking with her was like talking with an old friend.
We found some nice embroidery patterns. Here's one.
Yoko Saito's quilts never cease to amaze us.
Hanging alongside Yoko's quilt in the Lecien fabric booth was the quilt Kay and I made for Lynette Anderson. Our shipment of this fabric line should arrive soon.
Something tells me the person we opened this post with isn't doing the happy feet dance about now.......
We finished all our market business so will take tomorrow off and spend it with our brother and his family. We're looking forward to catching up with everyone.
