Houston, here we come!

Or, how do they say it?   Houston, we are a go.  So long as we are not saying, “Houston, we have a problem”.  At the end of this month Sue, Holly and I are heading to Houston, Teeexxas for International Quilt Market!  Marcie Patch will also be heading to Houston, to have her first ever quilt booth at the big show, Congrats Marcie!

Sue and I will be making the supreme sacrifice of shopping for the shop!  It will be our task to view hundreds of bolts of fabric, tons of patterns, books and new notions.  Then order lots of these new goodies for the store.  I hate to admit it, but that sounds better then it really is.  I’m tired just thinking about it!

Spring Quilt Market travels around the country.  I have been to market in Portland, OR, Salt Lake City, UT, Kansas City, MO, Boston, MA and to Minneapolis, MN- twice.  But, I have never been to the fall show, which is always in Houston.  Any of you out there know of any great shops we have to visit while in Houston?


Minute Maid Field where the Moda party is!!!

There is a big “secret” about our trip to Houston…but I will give you a hint.
