If you’ve been visiting with me on Facebook or Instagram or even here, I’m sure you’ve noticed that I’ve been prepping to exhibit at Quilt Market for the first time. (I’ve not shut up about it, you’d seriously need to go out of your way to avoid it.)
I think this may be one of the hardest things I’ve ever done for my art career. I’m debuting five new products and launching a wholesale arm to my business. I pulled it together in four months and honestly? I’m excited and worried and giddy and scared all at the same time. I’ve obsessed everything to within an inch of it’s life so I’m confident that it’s as good as it can be. That’s a pretty good place to be.
The blog is going quiet until after Market is over. If you are interested at all in following along with the wild ride as it happens, I invite you to visit me at my Instagram account. My username is girllovespaint. I’ll be showing all the new products I’ve got there first before anywhere else. I’m not taking my laptop so blogging won’t happen until after I’ve regained the ability to stay awake after I get home (I expect to be tired).
I’m not attending Festival, only Market.
If you are coming to Market, please stop by and say hello! Here’s all my details:
Smudged Textiles Studio
Schoolhouse presentation: “Break It Apart: How to Get More out of the Patterns You Sell” on Friday October 24 from 5:30pm-6pm (I’ll have chocolate and fabric and I’ll be sharing).
Keep your fingers crossed for me that it all goes well and I’ll be back here in a bit to share all the details – woo!
