Quilt Market Houston 2015
For Quilters and Sewists, one major highlight of the year is Fall Quilt Market held each year in Houston, Texas. Attendees are manufactures of goods in the industry along with store owners, buyers, artists and designers. Each year the creativity, energy and inspiration grows. It is truly amazing to see the handmade goods up close and personal. We want to share images from the show. It is not quite like being there in person, but close!
This quilt really caught our attention. Not only is the subject or the piece an amazingly beautiful woman but the detail in each and every stitch is simply amazing. We cannot imagine how many hours were spent creating this masterpiece or how many yards of thread were used. Yes that is a quilt and not a photograph!
Images from some of the various manufacture’s displays that caught our attention.
The weather during Market was rather rainy as the result of a tropical depression that was in the area. There were flash flood warnings, tornado sighting and loads of rain the entire time. But never fear our very determine team went through great lengths to make the best of a soggy situation. One the second day it was so windy and rainy that umbrellas were of little use and rain boots would have sold for lots of money. In order to stay dry our team got creative and used one of our new products Shield as a rain poncho. The interlining was perfect. Shield is a moisture & allergen barrier fabric and with some hand scissoring we stayed dry and looked simply stunning while doing it. 🙂
