2016 Houston Market – Talent Overload

Sarah Watts for Cotton and Steel

Houston’s International Quilt Market

I know, I am a little behind with sharing my International Quilt Market adventure, I really took my time to think about this trip. I have now gone to Houston two times and Spring Market once in the last two years.

Therefore, I will say Spring Market in Salt Lake City felt more intimate, felt like fewer vendors but I really was able to chat and talk with other designers, teachers, fabric companies and pattern makers.  I loved the experience of bunking with some friends this time around in a big Air BNB which was so cool!

Again, Fall Market, it is HUGE! The venue, the city, everything. Just big (they always say everything is bigger in Texas).

While I can’t explain to you how important market has become for me, it’s a time I get to reconnect with my friends around the world in one place. I come back inspired and ready to make upgrades and changes in my business and personal life. It really is an empowering feeling getting together with all the most creative people in my industry!

So I am not going to GUSH about Fall Market but I am going to post up the photos 🙂
