Every year I look forward to attending Quilt Market. This year was such a double delight to attend – as I was teaching a business class!
Here is what I found while at Quilt Market both on the floor, quilts, products, notions and everything else in between.
Notions and Products that Caught My Eye
Binding ease – it’s the silicone mat that sits under the iron (iron is hot) and you pull the binding through. Super cool!
The ironing mat underneath is from Iron Matik. I bought my own – and LOVE it!! I will share shortly the whole story about it. You can get more info about it:iron matik
Sew Steady has NEW colors! They are so fun and really could be an eyecatcher in your sewing room. You can look at the options for Sew Steady here.
Sewtites! I am so excited about this product. I am trying out their cutting mat and ruler – with the magnets. Video with that coming soon. Just know it’s really nice to use. Keeping your rulers set while cutting strips can be a little tricky and wiggly. Their system is fab and works really well. You can check out Sewtites here and get 15% OFF your order using the code: POSSE – here.
Oliso showed off a NEW mini iron. YAY!! It has a LIGHT and the cord is on the side, so it can stand up!! whoop whoop. Same awesome iron, just the mini form. You can grab your own Oliso Mini here. I’ll be sharing more about this mighty iron shortly as well.
Spinabout Rulers! These are sooo fun to use. They tend to ‘float’ on the fabric and are really easy to turn when trimming and squaring up blocks and pieces. They don’t slide with pressure but do when you want to spin them. You can find more info on the whole collection herespinabout
Carolina Moore released a LIGHT UP RULER!! It was a super hit at schoolhouse – as you can see a few checking them out.
This ruler helps you see the lines… I mean actually see them! You can do a pre-order here on her site: Always Expect Moore. It’s a great ruler and works in the light as well.
Magic Quilting Spray – this stuff is great. It can be sprayed multiple times on the same spot and it builds the stiffness- which then easily washes off.magic quilting spray
Fabric Printer – this was so fun to see on the floor. If you have your own patterns and designs, this printer will print out what you need. This is new to market and was really interesting to see.
The Featherweight Shop is a wonderful place to spend sometime in. It’s loaded with all things Featherweight. If you have a machine, you need to checkout the Featherweight Shop. They have books, cleaning kits, machines, feet and everything you need.
I attended a class by Pepper – she chatted all about her process of Sashiko stitching. I was even able to grab a copy of hersashiko pocket guide
This coming year we are going to be exploring Sashiko inside Patchworkers Plus. You are invited to join us!
The Keynote speaker was Tilda – it was a packed house as she spoke of her fabric line and showed off her quilts.
Look Who I ran into
Nicole, Leslie, Heather and I – we are putting together a crazy awesome virtual retreat next year… watch for it! We quickly snapped a pic… we of course meant to take another one later – but believe it or not, we never got all together again! Time goes too quickly at these things.
I also ran into Tula Pink (and got a little fabric pack too)
I spotted my quilt – it’s the middle blue background quilt – at the Andover Fabrics booth. I love, love seeing my quilts hanging in booths at market for all to see. This was a quick finish for me as I was using Alison Glass fabric (new line).
And to finish one evening, I attended Sample Spree. Always a blast and chaos – and I love it!
Here’s what I picked up… kind of a heavy bag 😉 I do have some plans for it though!
