2015 Spring Quilt Market Sneak Peek (Part 3): School House, New Books and Patterns



Store owners and buyers attending Quilt Market have many opportunities to learn about new books, meet the authors, and see project samples.    School House can also provide store owners with oodles of tips to showcase these books, as well as learn about traveling trunk shows that may be available.  In this post I am sharing insights on School House and various “in booth” opportunities to learn about these new books, while at Market.  This is also a great opportunity for those not attending Market, to let their favorite shops know what books they might like to see them offer.

Terial Arts #518

Attendees not familiar with Terial Arts should pop by and meet Terry to learn about how to use and the benefits of Terial Magic as a stabilizer, as well as her beautiful 3D fabric flower kits!   This is a great new product that not many are aware of.




Attendees to Quilt Market shouldn’t overlook the benefits of the APP that is available.  You can download at:quiltmarketapp.com

More things attendees should remember to pack:

  • Your camera and/or SmartPhone, batteries, charger as you’ll definitely want to take pictures
  • highlighter as you’ll want to highlight items in the program!
  • notepad to take notes
  • An umbrella, lightweight rain jacket, hat as there may be some wet weather during this event.  Some people flying may also be impacted with flight delays due to Tornadoes and storms.

    1. How fun that you were able to meet Natalie Barnes at TRENDS. She taught at the SD Quilt Show last Fall, but I was out of town. 😦

      BTW – I’m not attending Market, but having fun following #QuiltMarket insights on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and blog posts by those attending.
