So, here's the bogus deal - our little computer apparently has a little brain and is taking forever to upload the pics from today's fun and games. So, just a brief summary for y'all and then pics tomorrow (or much later tonight when maybe not so many folk are surfing the WiFi).
We attended some great Schoolhouse Sessions including many that will probably result in a class or MCQS-U session. We met the designer of the Down Under Wonder, the Australian quilt that we kitted for Quilt magazine. If you scroll back through our blog posts, you'll see an image of it. Kits ARE available for this quilt. We saw Amy Butler's new line of fabric LOVE and heard Ricky Tims talk about the new kits available using his fabulous fabrics. I went to a session sponsored by Free Spirit that focused on a new line of fabric based on the paintings by a blind artist. Amazing. Marcia is loving a new book available later this fall for 3D designs. And I got to hear my favorite business man Jim Salinas.
After Marcia sat in line for 3 hours holding out spots while I was in class, it was finally time at 8PM for Sample Spree. We opted to not rush the moda booth and instead found awesome other things. I'm in love with my new Baby Chibi doll and patterns and some other adorable stuffed critter patterns that we found. We picked up FQ bundles of many groups we've already ordered and will be shipping soon, so now we can make our samples ahead of delivery. I even bought fabrics for Christmas 2010. AH!
So, it's late and we must rest before classes tomorrow at 8AM. Pics to follow, I promise. This new fangled technology is sometimes more trouble than it's worth! Thanks for the comments. We walk the floor tomorrow, we'll report back. Y'all come back now, ya hear?
