Henry Glass at Market

This was my first market as a fabric designer. I still feel like a fake saying that, it seems kinda surreal. If you design fabric and have a booth at market, you will be located around your fabric manufacturer along with the other designers. This is the Henry Glass booth. If you look really close in the center you will see a little sign that says Linen Closet Designs. Woo Hoo! (I am easily excited.)
Anyway, it was so fantastic to be at market with everyone from Henry Glass. Everyone is so warm and welcoming and it is a great group to be a part of.
This is Karen, my design director. I can't tell you how awesome she has been to work with. I have had a million questions and she has been so good dealing with me and the fact that I know nothing.
My next door neighbor was Barbara Jones of QuiltSoup. This is a shot of her booth. I am so glad to have spent time with Barbara she is so fun and she knows her quilt business. Barb has a new book with That Patchwork Place. Her latest fabric line is Cruisin. Super cute!
Next to Barb was Buggy Barn. I need not say more. It's on my Quilt Bucket List to get out to Washington for their outdoor show. "Wingin It" is the latest from Buggy Barn. I have used alot of Buggy Barn fabrics and love them all.
Next up, on the corner is Leanne Anderson of the Whole Country Caboodle. Her booth was packed with all sorts of fantastic things. Leanne is super nice and so friendly. She was showing her fabric line" Cabin by the Lake". Awesome!
Here is Annie Downs of Hatched and Patched. Annie did not want a photo alone so I am in here with her. I am the least photogenic person around. It would have been better to get just Annie and all her wonderful quilts and projects! Annie has a new line called " Love to Garden".
This is Jill Finley of Jilllily Studio. Her new fabric line is" Beyond the Gate". She had a gate, stepping stones and real sod in her booth. It was pretty awesome. Talk about going the extra mile.
The girls of Lizzie B Creative. Their new line is called" Vogue". It was hard to get a shot of their booth because they were quite busy.
And right across on an angle from me is Jess Goldman of Bananafana. She designs children's clothes and sewing patterns. She debuted her new fabric line" Polka Perch" at market. It is all bright and fun prints.
And that's all for today folks!
Happy Quilting, Dawn


  1. Saw you in a few other peoples' photos from market...Sounds and looks like you had a GRrrrEAAAAAT time, and saw some beautful quilts and things and met some people as wonderfully talented and as helpful as you. One of these days, I hope to go to one as a pattern designer/vendor too. I should really be more aggressive about marketing but it's just not my thing. But here's to wishing I'll get there!! :) Glad you had lots of fun, am sure you had a successful market with lots of orders!

  2. I always seeing the quilts in the booths. Such inspiration.
