Meeting People at Fall Quilt Market

October 30, 2008 in General

Last week, I went to a trade show, Quilt Market in Houston, TX and met with many editors and publishers of sewing related titles.  One editor was Patricia Bolton, editor of Quilting Arts, a beautiful magazine targeting anyone enamored with fiber arts. She was excited about our booth, especially the new A-Line machines.

She had just done an interview with Jay McCarroll, Project Runway Season 1 winner. I asked her to introduce me to him. Hours later, when I walked by his booth, he was talking up his fabric line. He was gracious as he signed autographs and took this photo with me.

His line is irreverent and reminds me of how Saturday morning cartoons would look on acid. (I have not tried this and have no intention of doing this, mom.)¬†¬†His line is with Free Spirit¬†so take a peek.¬†I was glad to have met him. I was coincidentally wearing a dress I purchased at Chloe Dao’s (Project Runway Season 2 winner) Lot 8 boutique during last year’s Quilt Market. And just as a bonus, here I am with Chloe at a Passion for Fashion event in 2007. ¬†It all comes together….
