Let's have a party!

International Quilt Market (aka:  just "MARKET" in quilt world lingo). Have you been? Me either.  But this spring it is coming to my home town, Salt Lake City.  I am so excited to check out this vast realm of fabric overload.

And because there are so many fun bloggers who seem to show-up when Market hits town, not to mention the vast number of quilty-sewy-crafty bloggers in Utah, some of us local gals (Calli from Make It Do and Nanette from Freda's Hive) decided it would be a great excuse to have a quilt-blogger's shin-dig where everyone could meet-up in one place and talk to people in real life. (As I've been looking at venues I explained to one staff about the idea of hosting a 'blogger's meet-up' and they assumed it would be a bunch of people sitting at computers blogging the whole time. NO! We blog at home, when we see each other in person we gab! and eat! and everyone has a camera.)
If you're a local or you're going to be in town for Spring Market we would love to meet-up with YOU.  We are planning the event for the evening of Saturday, May 14 in downtown Salt Lake.  More details to follow, but we want you to save the date now.  You can keep abreast of the details at the Quilt Market Meetup Blog.  If you're coming, link your blog to the bottom of the page there - it will be fun to see who can come! And it's not limited to people who have a blog themselves - come if you like to read blogs too!

And feel free to grab a button and spread the word. Can't wait!


  1. Oh how I would *love* to attend!!
    All the ladies in one place would be so much fun!! Gosh, imagine all the joy of meeting one another!! :o) I wouldn't sleep for a week!
    Have a super time!
    I hope you have a nice weekend.
    Sincerely, Trish

  2. I put it on my calendar. Hope to make it :)

  3. Wow I wish I could attend. I was at spring market in Portland in 2008, pretty much pre-blogging at that time, and it was so much fun. This would be the icing on the cake!

  4. [jealous]
    Someone eat something yummy and take a zillion photos for me!!!

  5. What a super cool idea. I am so jealous - I live at the bottom of the world... literally - NZ is so far away... maybe one day I'll make it to Market though ;) I'll look forward to vicariously experiencing Market through your blogposts ;)

  6. Sounds like so much fun. I'm not a "real" quilter- but I play one at home. :) It'll be fun!

  7. I'll be there! Let me know if you need any help. I'd be happy to do what I can.

  8. I would love to go, but can't.... but my patterns will be there! The distributor that represents my pattern line, along with many other pattern lines, will be there. Look for Quilt Doodle Designs at the Pattern Peddler booth....

  9. Sounds SO fun-makes me wish I lived in Utah! Will be looking forward to the pics and stories from the event!

  10. Thanks for sponsoring, this will be so fun! Looking forward to meeting you :)


Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ Thanks!
