Some Market Favorites and a Give Away!

While zipping around the vendor floor at Quilt Market, I always like to look for some new favorite products.  Of course I ran around and checked out all of the new fabric lines (lots more coming out in retro brights and more oil cloth), oogled over the beautiful sewing tables/furniture, buzzed by the Handiquilter booth as saw their new upgraded sit down machine that is really tempting me, and had to stop by and see the new Go Baby that Accuquilt is coming out with (that cute little pink carry bag is adorable by the way).  But it's funny, this year I was attracted to many items that I already have!  I always love stopping by the vendors that carry the vintage ribbons/trims and buttons ~ and this year I didn't really have much time to shop them, but I spotted lots of the ribbons wound around antique spools much like the ones I have available for sale in my etsy shop or on my website

The Quilt Happy people had a booth at Market, and I got to see all of their product line up close and personal.  They have some really nice totes and things coming out in the new year.  I just love my little carry all, and already have them available here in my shop.

And the Sullivan's Cutting Edge rulers were quite a hit at this Market too.  These rulers are cool because they have a carbide edge that sharpens the rotery cutter wheel with regular use.  I particularly like the markings, they're very easy to read, and pretty competivly priced too.  I have several sizes already available here on my website under Favorite Notions.  It was kind of neat to see that some of the most recent things that I've liked and brought to our store were some of the popular things shown at Market :)

...And in keeping with our little tradition of a Market Goodie Give Away, here is a little pile of things that I've brought home just to pass on the Quilt Market love.  Included in the give away is a great oversized tote from the Go Baby Schoolhouse that I attended, a really cute little gift box that has a special Go Baby key chain along with a bubble gum cigar to annouce the birth of the Go Baby :), A fabric tote bag from Andover made with their Dimples line, a current issue of Quiltmaker Magazine, A card making kit from eStudio fabrics and Christine Adolph, and a cloth quilt label...and I just may throw a few more things in the box before I ship it out to a lucky winner. 

So, just leave a comment on this post, and I'll do a random drawing of one name and announce the winner on Sunday night :) 

Enjoy the day!
