Are trade shows worth your time? from Professional Quilter


Quilt Market, the quilting and soft crafts industry trade show, starts in a few weeks. I’ve been going since 2004. I’ve gone as a vendor, a member of the press, and an educator. Today when I’m not teaching, I spend my time walking the floor, networking, and making connections.

I have always been a fan of trade shows, partly because I love all the tchotchkes. I have buttons, coffee cups, pens and even a couple of stuffed animals from the trade shows I have visited. I have developed quite the reputation among my family and friends for ...

A Little Sparkle in Your Day from Terificreations's Weblog

Sultry befits the feel of the day; while hazy, hot, and humid are apt descriptors, sultry has a southern, slow feel. On a sultry July afternoon I ventured into the City for the Women’s Jewelry Association Annual Awards Gala (July 2017) where quilter and artist MJ Kinman exhibited her work. MJ’s work came to my… Continue reading A Little Sparkle in Your Day

Tuesday Afternoon Ponderings from Terificreations's Weblog

You know I think a lot, you’ve seen that in my quilts. I submitted a Sample Chapter and am still thinking about things that need to be in that chapter. I keep reminding myself that it doesn’t have to be perfect. It just doesn’t. That thinking though, sometimes just keeps going. I’m sharing a couple… Continue reading Tuesday Afternoon Ponderings

Fabric Review: Giucy_Guice from Terificreations's Weblog

I sat down with Giuseppe Ribaudo at Quilt Market for all of five minutes. While I wanted more time to look at other lines, the five minutes was all I needed. I’m totally smitten with his new line, Quantum. I’m smitten. Serilously smitten. I think this is a smart line with so many ways to… Continue reading Fabric Review: Giucy_Guice

A Box, and a Dream from Terificreations's Weblog

A while back the Sizzix Big Shot Pro arrived for use in my sewing room. I fell in love with this get-the-cutting-done-so-you-can-get-stitching-right-now machine. We were planning a project with the magazine and cutting a boatload of hexagons with a rotary cutter and ruler, while doable, wasn’t really high on my list of things that get me… Continue reading A Box, and a Dream

Quilt Market From a Different Viewing Place from Terificreations's Weblog

We all know that everything changes, and we all know that we fight the changes as they come along, because there is comfort in things staying the same. A few years back Quilts, Inc tightened up… Continue reading Quilt Market From a Different Viewing Place

Clenching from Terificreations's Weblog

Several years ago while getting ready to have a bunion surgery I learned that the bones of my feet go off to the left/right accordingly, rather than going straight like they should. This creates a bit of swelling on the top of my feet, that sometimes makes standing, and walking annoying, painful, irritating. Problem is,… Continue reading Clenching

Lisa and I ditched Ken in the Pickle Pie booth and walked very, very quickly to the HandiQuilter booth to find Debby well taken care of and fine. We did, however, cut her off from any further… Continue reading Then there was that time
