Here is Mel, Me and Linzee after we finished setting up the booth-actually, we ordered two darling girls from Minnesota around and they put up the booth while we told them where we "thought they should put things." I loaned samples that Mary Linfesty did out to the buttons companies and didn't get photos to show. Mary is very talented in quilting, teaching school and being a great Mother to her darling boys. She did the quilt above that has the little bit of color and all of the black and creams on the table. It is an awesome quilt! All Hoochy Mama and inspirational too!

Here is Pat Sloan and I before we went out and got lunch and chatted about all of the exciting things that quilting has to offer to us and you. She is alot of fun and knows how to get creative and have fun!

One of the nice things about working for Benartex is that they have awesome people who work for them.As we set up the part of the booth that had "Happiness Is" fabrics of mine, Rafael helped out every time we asked. he has a lovely strong accent and he is pretty hunky too. It is nice to see someone like him be so thoughtful to us older gals. :0) I told him you all would love his photo on my blog. :0)
This is a photo of my dear friends from Tennessee Quilts. It is absolutely one of my MOST favorite shops and I order online from them all of the time. Tall Linda, me, Brenda and short Linda are chatting about the new things they ordered. I already have my list of fabrics I have to have! These girls made many samples out of my line to have at their shop and if you can't find "Happiness Is", they will have the whole line.
Talk about being at the right place at the right time! Cary Breshnahan (the Grand Grand Poobah of Market-she owns Quilts Inc.) came by Lizzie B's while I was chatting with them and she gave them a first place ribbon on their booth. It was so exciting for me to see how thrilled they were along with one of their Mom's and a husband. We all were grinning ear to ear.
Check them out and all that they have to offer!

The two girls (Lizzie B) girls are Sister in law's and the ladies on each end are Mother and daughter. I think this is very you think since they don't live in the same state, that they fought over the ribbon??? Nope, look at their can tell they get along great.
This is one of the best parts of Market,meeting new and old friends.

Some great pictures! I love seeing your set up at Benartex. But of course, when I went by their booth you were not there. But I loved all of the color. Congrats to Lizzie B. and gang.
