In my last post I promised that I would continue my market report… it’s not gonna happen. I got caught up working & visiting and forgot to take any pictures! Of course I could describe how the rooms looked and tell you how amazing some of the models were in person, but trust me it won’t have the same effect. I did think to snap a few pics as I was unpacking one of my totes, so I’ll share those instead:
1. two pair blue scissors from Dinky Dyes, white Little Gems and a bee skep Needle Minder from Kelmscott, floss skeins from Threadworx, and a snazzy leaf tape measure from Lantern Moon.
2. One of those big project bags from Stitch A Gift, LK Christmas ABC’s, and something new from Weeks Dye Works: two-stranded floss on a little roll… how cool are these be for motif or monochrome samplers?! Miranda told me that she just started with a few colors, but plans to expand the line.
3. “Quaker Diamonds” by Rosewood Manor. I collect Karen’s charts because they’re pretty… I’ll probably never stitch one. “The Crypt Club” is a fun design by Prairie Moon. The model for the next in the series was on display, too… I have a feeling this skeleton couple is going to have lots of fun over the next year. Now, I’m not usually interested much in witchy things, but Lisa’s “Witches Hollow” is very clever… I wish you could have seen this model!
I brought home something else from the show, too. After every hotel show, many of the exhibitors and shop owners get this mysterious virus thing- “show sickness”. It got so bad after Nashville that there will be a new location for the 2010 show. I’ve managed to avoid getting it for the last 6 hotel shows, so I guess 7 is my lucky number after all. (she said sarcastically) To my fellow sickies, I hope you feel better soon :)
