  • Road to California 2018 – the Highlights

    So… with the 2018 edition of the Road to California Quilter’s Conference “in the books”, it’s time for us to show you what we deemed to be the highlights of this year’s show! First off, our booth set up was basically the same as it was in Houston for Quilt Market & Festival with one […]

  • Concerning AQS Paducah 2017 –

    So… we’re back from AQS Paducah 2017, which was our last show of the season and our fifth in a span of 6 months. It was a good show for us, but between you and me, I am SO ready for a long stretch of time at home. We’ve covered a lot of ground in […]

  • AQS Quiltweek Daytona Beach- the Recap

    So… you might remember from a previous post that this year we decided to add the AQS Quiltweek Daytona Beach to our show schedule (in addition to Road 2 Ca, AQS Paducah & Quilt Festival in Houston). And now that we’re back and things have pretty much settled down to normal, it’s time for the obligatory […]

  • 2016: What Worked & What Didn’t

    So… 2016 is almost over, so it’s time for us to sit down and do a long, hard, honest assessment of what we did right over the course of the last 12 months, as well at what didn’t work out quite as good as we had hoped. You know what they say, those who do […]

  • Rollin’ Down the River

    So…. just a few weeks ago we returned from an INCREDIBLE 2-week adventure overseas! Now if you’re a regular follower of our Blog, then you know that we do quite a lot of traveling over the course of the year, but almost ALL of it is in conjunction with the business, so while we do […]

  • Ask Kat: When Will You Come to a Quilt Show Near Me?

    So… here’s  a question we get asked quite a lot and you know what? It’s honestly VERY heartwarming to be wanted in so many places, so I thought it might be a good idea to explain the decision-making process that goes into creating our annual show schedule. First of all—it’s important to explain our business […]

  • AQS Lancaster 2016 ReCap

    So… We vended at the AQS Quiltweek Lancaster event a few weeks ago. It’s been 40 years since the last time we were in this area of Pennsylvania, which was actually for our honeymoon, so it was fun and a bit sentimental to be back! Here’s how our booth look at the opening bell. I’m […]

  • Road2Ca2016 Recap

    So… We flew out to southern California a couple of weeks ago to vend for a second successive year at the Road to California Quilter’s Conference and now it’s time to give you a recap of the show! First of all, the view flying into the Ontario, CA airport this year was nothing short of […]

  • Spring Quilt Market 2015- An Overview

     So… last week at this time we were in beautiful downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota for the 2015 version of the International Spring Quilt Market and this year, instead of giving you the usual blow by blow account of how we put our booth display together, (especially since we haven’t changed the layout appreciably since “Road to […]

  • AQS Quiltweek Paducah

    So… if we’ve learned anything from traveling to 19 tradeshows over the last 8 years, it’s that every single location we vend in is different. But here’s the thing— even though we like to think of ourselves as grizzled show “veterans” by now (and we are), we’ve found that there’s nothing that can make you […]
