Quilt Market Revisited #4: Schoolhouse

Schoolhouse is a wonderful event for Quilt Market attendees to meet with dozens of designers, publishers, fabric companies and "famous quilters". Each teacher makes a 15 or 30 minute presentation about their products or designs. I had 2 presentations about my Memory Quilt patterns and was delighted to have over 100 people in attendance.

Here is Faye from Michell Marketing, waiting to hand out the Schoolhouse class lists.

Some attendees sat outside in the beautiful sunshine amid the rhododendrons to choose their classes.

I was able to attend one Schoolhouse session with Mark Lipinski, editor of Quilters Home magazine. Mark is also designing fabric for Northcott fabrics. I now have some of his black and white Califon fabric and hardly wait to start using it. Lots of ideas - not enough time!
