Yikes! I can't believe it has been since January that I last wrote on our blog!! So here is the skinny-
Harriet and I have been hard at work getting the manuscript writing for our Quilter's Academy book series- we turned the writing in the beginning of April and are now working on getting 17 quilts quilted!
The store is busy and doing well- Mel has been moving fabric and redecorating and the store looks great with all the fresh new spring/ early summer fabric in stock. We are also receiving our orders of patriotic fabrics to support of Shop Hop theme this year of "America the Beautiful". Keep an eye out for the announcements about the Shop Hop quilt and events taking place the first weekend in August.
I am currently in beautiful Salt Lake City attending Quilt Market. So far have found lots of great new patterns and my brain is full of new class and event ideas for the store.
On a personal note- just have to tell you all how wonderful downtown Salt Lake is... I have been either riding the light rail or walking everywhere I go- it is such a lovely city with tons of things to do and a great atmosphere. I'm not much of an urbanite, but this city could make me one... its fun to not have to drive everywhere... and did I mention I'm staying at the Little America! Talk about afforable luxury. I have this great room with a balcony and a water fountain right outside that soothes any frayed nerves and the service and food has been amazing. Even though I'm working this has been a great vacation as well.
So, look out when I get home, I'll be jazzed up and ready to have fun!! Hope to see you all in the store soon!
Carrie
