Houston Quilt Market - Day 2

It was another wonderful day at Quilt Market!  As my only day without a "schedule", I was able to check out the quilt show, browse the vendor area, make new friends and more!  Being a new author, I just had to check and see who had it on display in their booth (besides my publisher, Martingale / That Patchwork Place), and the first one I located was in the Checker booth:

The next one I found was in the United Notions booth:

When I finally made my way to the E.E. Schenck booth, I noticed that they also had my book (sorry, no picture, because my camera battery died), and when the sales lady noticed me and asked if she could help, I said I had just noticed that they were carrying my book, and came to find out that they had done a demo of my table runner earlier today!  I also was able to meet the lady who did the demo and see her quilt top, and only wish I had been able to take a picture and remember her name.  Thank you E.E. Schenck!!!

Now yesterday, when I ran into Libby Lehman and Elinor Peace Bailey I would have liked to have taken their picture, but again, my camera battery had already run out (I've got to get a new battery or camera), but when I ran into Libby again today, she posed for me to take one for my blog.  If you ever get a chance to take class with her, go, you'll learn a lot, even if you've been quilting for years!

We are enjoying your trip, too! (I carry extra batteries in my purse because it really is a bummer to lose a priceless shot 'cuz of batteries dying!)
