Market Candy Post #1






So we've safely arrived in Pittsburgh and are ready to go on Thursday! We've picked up our buyer's guides and are reading through the hundreds of vendors who will be sharing their goodies. It's a lot to see and do, but the best way to bring all the newest info to you! We visited a quilt shop, The Quilt Company, today. Karen Montgomery, the owner, is the lady who came up with the 60 degree triangle ruler tablerunner that uses the border stripes. If you haven't seen this runner made, stop by for a great demo! We'll have more pictures in the next post of Pittsburgh and the events at market on Thursday. Remember to leave your comments to be entered to win our market candy prize!


This is the beautiful riverboat Duchess happily "steaming" down the Allegheny River. We saw the Princess earlier taking another load of happy folks. The river comes right up to the convention center with a lovely walkway and viewing area to see the river traffic.

It's so great to see the Market banner. So exciting to think about all the new ideas and products just waiting to be discovered. Hope you have a wonderful day at Schoolhouse and Sample Spree and find lots of great new ideas and tools.
