Our Last Day at Quilt Market

13 Oct


Hi Everyone,

Well today is the last day of Quilt Market so everyone is rushing around to get in last minute orders with distributors, pattern makers and  fabric manufacturers, at the end of the day, those booth holders who are leaving will be packing up overnight so that the new booth holders can move in and set up to prepare for Quilt Festival. This picture is of the award winning booth from Alexander Henry, as you can see the theme is Halloween with the agents wearing black and the booth decorated with spiders, bats etc. very effective and well deserved.


Kevin and I bought patterns at this booth, these jackets are really easy to make, we have some with us and another order being mailed out.

DSCF0113As you know from previous postings this is Arnold, who is the cousin of Barney Official Greeter and 2nd Assistant and Archie 3rd Assistant (Unpaid) Arnold is my daughter and son in laws little Parsons Jack Russell Terrier, he accompanied them from New Zealand to America eight years ago and is a lovely little man, unfortunately he has been unwell since we have been over here and I have just heard that he is going to the vet this afternoon for a check up, so can we channel good thoughts for a speedy recovery for him? thank you.

So until next time

Happy Quilting

      Hi Marjorie
      I am unsure who the agent for Alexander Henry in NZ is, but shall make enquiries.
