Houston - Quilt Market and Festival - Re-cap!


Our time spent in Houston at Market and Festival was fantastic!
We're so grateful for Leanna, Helen's daughter, and her husband Brandon. We're lucky they live in Houston and allowed us to send product to their cute and very neat apartment! Our boxes occupied a full corner of their home! We appreciated grandma's (mom - Sherril Passey) and Leanna's help setting up and working in our booth.


(A couple of hard workers and a couple of selfie takers! Lol!!)




Market was magical! We've decided we love this part of our jobs!



(A couple of really fun photo bombers from Australia!)


We had a few visits from some recognizable ladies! How fun for us!! :) Jen Kingwell, Alison Glass, and Jenny Doan!



Sherilyn's handsome son, Bennett, came to visit us as well! His muscles were quite timely! 


We had plenty of rainy days but the sun shown brightly as we spent a day, in between market and festival, visiting the Houston LDS temple. 






Landauer Publishing did a fabulous job, publishing and introducing our new book, One Wonderful Curve. The ladies at Laundauer are the friendliest and best ever! 




Festival kept us hoppin!! We had a huge positive response! Many quilters loving our new QCRmini, new patterns and new book, One Wonderful Curve.


We each took our turn demoing the Quick Curve Ruler and the QCRmini.  We're very glad there were 3 of us!



We definitely had our fair share of mishaps and funny moments. And, no, not that kind of mishap... ;) just a spilled coke! Dang! And that was such a cute outfit!  



We're sure going to miss beautiful Houston! Everyone was sooo friendly! Helen informed us that "Texas Friendly" is the term used for all the friendly people in Texas. So True! :)



Home Sweet Home! Our husbands and kids were sure happy to see us! A funny card Helen received from her husband, Lance, when she returned home. :)


The work never ends! But we love it! Orders getting shipped this week! 
And, in case you missed the announcement, our new book, One Wonderful Curve, our new QCRmini and new patterns are all now available on our website. sewkindofwonderful.com 


Happy Quilting everyone!

Thanks so much for the wonderful wrap-up!!! As we have recently been informed upon the purchase of a winter get-away abode in South TX, we are a "Winter Texan" which goes a long way to making a body feel welcome........the same as you experienced! Perhaps some other locales could take a pointer or two from their approach!!??!! Now, off to check out your new publication.

Glad everything was a success for you, except for the Coke. I feel you with the demonstrating experience. On Saturday my sister's quilt shop, Celestial Quilts in Oil City, celebrated their 1st Anniversary. And I said "Hey! I want to help" and she said "Great will you demo that ruler you used to make that double wedding ring quilt?" Of course she was talking about Quick Curve Ruler and Metro Rings. So I must have showed the Quick Curve Ruler 12 times but it seemed like more. I made the table runner pattern that comes with the ruler.

Everyone was amazed that there was no pins and how easy it was to sew and I came away with a new table runner!

The best part was, I over heard a customer talking about another template and pattern designer and how they have so many rulers and each pattern seems to take a different one and the shop she had been shopping at, not my sister's, had such a large variety of them but they didn't have the template for the pattern she had picked up. I spoke up and said "That's why you need the Quick Curve Ruler, one ruler and an entire library of patterns"

Thanks for creating such an amazing ruler and all those patterns.

Awesome!! Thanks for the support and encouraging others to give our ruler a try. They won't regret it! And how great that you demoed the ruler as well! Love it!
