We’re having one of those cold, dismal springs here in the heart of the country, the kind where the weather seems stuck in the past, reluctant to shake off the chill and get with the program.

We’re open for business!

Here I am, nestled in between quilts from Gone to Texas, Route 66 and Pick of the Seasons typing this blog. It is the first day of Quilt Market – we are open for business! So far, it has been smooth sailing, thanks to our crew that came along. Usually it’s just Doug, Edie and I, and we’re often still setting up the morning of the show.

(And thanks to author Sheri Howard (of Ruby Red Dots) for stopping by to help bag patterns!)

Yesterday we had six different schoolhouse sessions where we presented our new books. All were well attended, and Edie, Deb and Brian were very entertaining for their audiences. Deb and Brian were sure to mention our new book Artful Bras: Hooters, Melons and Boobs, Oh My! A Quilt Guild’s Fight Against Breast Cancer at the end of every schoolhouse. The quilt shop owners sure got a hoot (pun intended) out of the subtitle. Authors Sarah Maxwell and Dolores Smith, Betsy Chutchian, Jan Patek and Barbara Jones also hosted schoolhouse sessions.
