I just got back from my first ever Houston Quilt Market. Quilt Market is the international trade show for the quilting industry and is held twice a year. The fall one is always in Houston and the spring one rotates around the country.
I was nervous going into the show -- but I really didn't need to be. I picked up my friend Elizabeth in Dallas who helped me vend during the show and when I got to Houston I was able to meet up with members of my Creative Arts Business Group. This group is incredibly supportive and made me feel like I was among friends while navigating this new venture for me.
If you are thinking about a career in quilting, I would definitely recommend Morna and this group. Here are a few links to check out to get started.
I didn't have much time to see the larger market, but I thought I would at least share my impressions of the show.
The Row by Row experience continues to be popular. The theme for 2016 will be "Home Sweet Home". I am already thinking about a number of new designs using Electric Quilt.
Are you interested in the free supplemental pattern which shows how to combine my blocks into a unit that may be pieced into JoAnn's pop-up. Click here.

You may have noticed some detectives on a few of my quilts. That means the quilt pattern would also make a good mystery for either a shop or a guild. Here is how my mystery program works.
If you are interested in using one of my mystery quilt patterns in your shop or for a mystery event at your guild, please drop me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org
Love your Electric Quilt Private Coaching Program
I know that you may be ready to make the commitment to expand your knowledge and use of Electric Quilt. I have openings in my schedule starting in January and will be taking on a limited number of private coaching clients to work with in expanding your Electric Quilt technical skills.
Opening are still available. Early bird discounts have been extended to November 10th as life has been a bit hectic on my end and I've been slow at responding to e-mails.
