We flew in from Kansas City yesterday afternoon and headed straight for the shop for our monthly staff meeting. We unloaded three suitcases full of products and brochures that I was able to share with everyone. Though it had been a long day, I was bursting with excitement and information and was glad to be able to share it with our wonderful folks. Spring Market is always my favorite show. There just seems to be more time and space to visit with the designers and companies.
One of my favorite stops was at Laundry Basket Quilts with Edyta Sitar. What a wonderful, gracious lady she is! We visited with her a while and purchased some copies of her new book, Scrappy Fireworks. Though she was preparing for a webinar she took the time to sign each copy for us. (Hurry in or call us to get your copy.) We loved her new patterns featuring precious, colorful umbrellas and talked to her about how much we are anticipating her new block of the month, Over the Rainbow. Meeting with this great lady was a fantastic way to open our Market 2012 experience.
