Hi Honey, I'm home!!

Wow! What a fantastic trip! I don't even know where to begin to be honest so I am just going to take the photo dump approach.


Tula Pink deep in conversation with Alex from Aurifil. I hope this leads to something exciting!
Thomas Knauer showing off an amazing quilt made by Dan Rouse using Frippery
A corner of Melody's fantastic booth
Out for dinner with Melody Miller. This one is here just to make Kelly jealous.
Judith's quilts hanging in the Liberty booth
New Denyse Schmidt line, Shelburne Falls
Me, Jacey and Annie. And the obligatory boob grab.
As well as the trade stands there was an enormous quilt show, including a whole section of amazing modern quilts. It was so cool to see in real life all these quilts that are famous in our little world. And more than a little surreal.

Keep an eye on The Village Haberdashery in the next few months because Annie has found lots of incredibly gorgeous things that I know you are going to like. There are new lines coming in from Lizzy House, Thomas Knauer, Sarah Watson, Alison Glass, and loads more. You'd better get in quick or I may have it all before anyone else can get to it.

Thanks so much, Annie, for a wonderful trip!
