Spring Market, Portland, OR
Well, it’s all over. Mostly.
I still need to pack and get to the airport, but for the most part, Spring Market is wrapped up and boy, was it awesome. The fabric, the trends, and the best part, which never changes: the people. The donuts were good, too. And the crepe paper. And the enormous swan at the Michael Miller booth. That was pretty flippin’ cool, too.*
Thanks to everyone who works to make Quilt Market, OESE, QuiltCon, and all the awesome quilt trade shows happen. I can only imagine the work that goes into organizing such events. And to all the vendors, the attendees, the folks who stand at the door to check that you have a name badge… It’s a great industry and I’m honored to be a part of it.
* I have a confirmed, hot tip from a good friend that someone BOUGHT THE SWAN OFF THE FLOOR!
