Last week we had the pleasure of exhibiting at QuiltCon 2015, a modern quilt show and conference in Austin, TX, hosted by the Modern Quilt Guild. Today we would like to share some pictures that we took at QuiltCon and let you know about all of the things that we saw!
Our booth featured "Our Town," one of our newest lines from Contempo Studios designed by Michele D’Amore.
The runner quilts that were displayed in our booth will be available soon as free patterns on our website! The quilt on the table is from Deanne Moore's book titled "Fabric Play." To find out more about this great quilt pattern and book, visit Creative Sewlutions.
We shared the booth space with our sister company - Brewer. They are a distributor of all things sewing, quilting, and crafting. Here is their booth display:
Check out what is available ... Benartex scissors and bias tape makers! Your local quilt shop can order them through Brewer.
And here is a picture of our entire Benartex/Brewer booth:
On Thursday we gave a talk called "Think Big" showing quilts that use big prints and/or big blocks to make a BIG impact!
Each day we had a fun little project to demonstate to the attendees - and a free pattern and kit for them to take home. One of our projects was a four patch coaster:
Watching the demo:
A lovely little girl named Emily got to sew for the very first time - making a coaster to take home:
Our other project was a luggage tag:
One quilter even ran home after the show on Friday to make her luggage tag and brought it back to show us!
We had a great time meeting and talking to all of the quilters that visited our booth! Please stop back here on Monday to see our pictures of the magnificent show quilts--so much inspiration!
