Spring Market 2010
Posted by administrator on Wednesday, May 26th, 2010
Minnesota 2010 we wanted to show off our colors. We worked with an amazing company, and they brought the vision of our booth to reality. We wanted to display our fabric on walls...and this is what they came up with. Here is Jina showing it off.
This was the first time we were able to set everything up. After putting up 7 fabric walls, we were thrilled with how our booth turned out. Here is the view from the front of our booth, showing off our "Summer Song" collection from MME.
Round the corner and you can see our new "Boo to You" collection from MME.
On the other side, and you can see our "Felicity" line by Emily Taylor.
Our Riley Blake sign was one of my favorite items on this booth.
We also had two towers to highlight our fabric lines and artists. Here is Jody Taylor's line "Nantucket Summer" It is so cheery with bright colors; young and old love this line. We had a few of our artists come to market for the first time. Jody did not make it because she is soon be a first time mom in a couple of weeks but she sent us lots of product to display. She has many patterns using Nantucket. Guess what her nursery with be decked out in...Nantucket Summer....Lucky Girl.
Emily Taylor shows off her felicity line, plus her modern retro line "Domestic Diva" due out the first of July. LOVE her Domestic Diva apron!
This is Shari Butler, designer of Sublime and Hooty Hoot Kangaroo. She has a great sense of color and her new boy line is a sooo cute. And because there are Kola bears on the main print, it is my 7 year old's favorite line. Due out in July.
MME section had a great view of our new Colorful Christmas line due out in two weeks. I know it is not summer yet, but we love the colors in Colorful Christmas.
We have a few new artists to introduce to you. Amanda from the Quilted Fish has a beautiful line called "Sweet Divinity". Unless you were at market you will have to wait a month to see this new line posted on the website. We have a few more artists to introduce that we are really excited about and will be posting information about them soon.
Note to Self: take more pictures. I got home and realized I only had taken about 18 picture
Thanks again to everyone who stopped by our booth. I met so many people including Melissa Stramel and Lisa Sipes. Melissa gave a tutorial on our Cutting Corners college this month and Lisa will be our featured course instructor next month. Thanks Ladies for stopping by and letting us display your items in the Cutting Corners section of our booth. We were so glad to meet with new customers and visit with returning ones. I know we have great fabric, but the biggest draw was our Riley Blake mint truffles. ( Shelby came by so many times that it was my full-time job to keep the candy dishes full. jk...Shelby) Until next market....when we will have bowls full of Riley Blake Truffles.
