Hello Everyone as many of you know Quilts Market is in Kansas City, Missouri this year, start tomorrow the 18th – 20th and just a few hours from home Whoo Hoo!!!  I am so excited for my first trip to Market!!!  What quilter would not be ecstatic, all the vendors, new quilting gadgets, machines, thread and last but not least new fabric lines, I think I am just giddy with delight.  I better find my comfy shoes as it will we a long day!  I hope to bring back a wealth of information and hopefully some photos too!  I am sure the pocket book will be a bit lighter but as long as the bags are fuller all will be good.

In June, 2012 we have two upcoming quilting events right here in our hometown of Omaha, Nebraska! Both during the same time a stones throw away from each other giving you a chance to make a day of it and enjoy both!
