We arrived in Oregon on Wednesday and stopped at some more stores. Holly Hill in West Linn is a must see if you are in town. The displays are amazing!
Thursday we started the day at a local antique mall, called Montecellos. We saw some great pieces but they don't ship so the next trip will have to be with a bigger car. Then it was on to more stores. One of them was Pine Needles in Lake Oswego.
Thursday night they have Sample Spree. The best part is being able to pre-buy some fat quarter bundles of the fabric lines we are ordering.
Friday morning the convention center opens and the fun begins. Aisles and aisles of fabric, pattern, book and notions vendors. It started at row 300 and ended at aisle 2100. We ordered and ordered and I am excited about all of the great things we will be bringing to you in the near future. Our plan is to have lots of new kits ready by the Quilt Run in June. Keep checking back for updates. Here are some of the highlights:
These two patterns were adorable! What kid wouldn't want a barn full of animals to carry around with them? We kitted this one today and expect it to be a big hit.
We brought home some of these great Halloween and Christmas stocking patterns.
Children and doll patterns were all the rage. Expect to see more of these. What girl wouldn't want to wear a matching outfit with her doll?
Can I just say, tooooo cute! We are exploring the idea of selling these sewing tables. They were very sturdy and affordable.
How can you not fall in love with MODA? We ordered Full lines from Bunny Hill, Minick and Simpson, Fig Tree and some pieces from other lines.
Ordered Nancy Halversons new line and book. All the projects are great as always.
We purchased Lots of new bag patterns and fabrics to make them.
Look for this new stitching program that Pamala will be in charge of.
We saw the new Block of the Month we are starting in October. The quilt is so beautiful in person.
Debbie from Wooden Spool designs has some great new sampler patterns and we have them all, plus lots more from her. She was a great hostess and I can't wait to visit her again.
Believe it or not, this was just a summary. We came back with lots more, including inspiration and ideas for so much more.
Can't wait to see you in the store.
