Wow! Two weeks since our last post, can that really be right?!? What a whirlwind! To market to market.....home again, jiggity jig. Sandy, our Mom & I spent five nights in Houston, Texas for the International Fall Quilt Market. (Here we are at the Aquariam for a lovely dinner courtesy of Benartex)
We were not only purchasing the latest and greatest to bring home to Pine Needles, but were also debuting Sandy's latest designs under her label Pine Mountain Designs. Her booth was filled with the oooooohhs and aaaaahhhs from store owners from all over the country. At Pine Needles we have the pleasure of seeing Sandy's designs year round (and usually get to see new designs from her at least once a month), but others who only get to see them once or twice a year remind us how truly unique and inspiring her designs are. It was so fun to be a small part of that while at Quilt Market. She has many offers on the table, with many opportunities for amazing national exposure, and I for one can not wait for the world to know my EXTREMELY TALENTED sister!
Here I order and order and order delicious fabrics from one of our favorites Michael Miller.
I ordered so much fabric that I got 30 seconds in the booth to catch as much Fabric Cash as I could.
But enough of that! Here is a picture of our finished "Mystery Monday" which Sandy has named Deck the Walls!
It is so nice to be re-inspired and reminded of just why we love quilting. Come to Pine Needles, see what we brought home and let us inspire you too!
Husband and wife team Randy and Sandy Workman opened the doors of Pine Needles in August of 1996. It began as a small cross stitch store and is now proud to carry all the wonderful necessities for quilting, cross stitch, primitive embroidery and Russian punch needle. Many of the items we offer are by local artisans whose work appeals to shoppers and tourists alike. Our walls are brimming with the promise of projects to be done.
