I love this time of year. Not only did we have a beautiful fall day without a cloud in the sky, but I’m in major anticipation mode for the Houston International Quilt Market. Three of my fellow quilting business owners and I rent a room at the Hilton Americas next to the convention center and immerse ourselves in the quilt world. At Market, we get to see the new lines of fabric coming out as well as all the new gadgets and gizmos for quilters. Even though it is a working trip, it’s fun to meet with the fabric reps and choose new fabrics to add to my collection for my t-shirt quilt customers. And even though quilting is my business, it’s also my passion, so it never seems like work. I can’t wait to see what Market has in store this year.
