The Quilt Market Story Told in Quilts!

The Clothworks Team is all back and recovered from the craziness and fun that is Quilt Market!  If you aren’t familiar with this most famous of quilting events, it is the twice-a-year trade show for the quilting industry.  All of the pattern, fabric, and notion companies have their latest and greatest goodies on display, and the quilt shop owners and fabric buyers eagerly scramble about ordering fabulous finds for their shops back home.  It is three days of pure excitement and visual overload–to say you come home from market with a few ideas and a little tired is a major understatement!  I remember my first market like it was yesterday–there were so many beautiful quilts, quilting celebrities, and to-die-for fabrics that I almost passed out right there in the aisle!  If you’re not a quilt shop owner or buyer of some sort you’ll have to take my word for it, but for now here are some some photos of our lovely booth with quilts from some of our latest collections…
