{fall quilt market – take 3 + a teaser!!}

For my giveaway, be sure to post a comment (or two or three) on this post here!!! You've got until next Monday, Nov 14th!! Better hurry!!

Okay, so where were we???

How about some loot pictures?? Yeah, we all love good loot pics. 

Now, if you don't know what Sample Spree is, it is a two hour shopping extravaganza that select companies choose to participate in, usually the day before Market starts. This year it was Friday, Oct 28th. You sit in line for a crazy amount of hours (we sat for 3 hours!! eek!!) and then when they open the doors, you RUN for the booth from which you want to buy stuff. Usually it's the Moda booth, because they have lots and lots of fat quarters and fat eighth packs of the fabrics that are just announced and shown at Market. 

The thing is everything is wholesale, only open to business with credentials (tax ID, business bank acct) which includes cottage industry stores like mine. But mainly, Market is geared towards quilt stores…fabric stores, pattern stores, etc. So the manufacturers want the stores to get "Samples" of their products so they can make "Samples" for their stores!! :) 

So here is what I got…
