Markety Market

Home from market...dead tired...but inspired beyond belief! It was an overwhelmingly amazing experience! I have "just a few" pictures to share ;) If you make it through this post you will probably be as exhausted as I am!!

Me and Paula Prass on Friday night at the Meet and Greet (isn't she adorable???)

Mary (Flourishes), Patty (Modkid), and Myrinda (Fabrichound) after the schoolhouse series.

Kathy Miller showcasing the dress I made for Paula Prass (gulp!)

Me and Mary (is that a song??)

Traci (Hip Fabric), Patty, and Myrinda

Me and Patty. Ask Patty about the dorky note I sent into her while she was preparing her booth. Being such a "groupie" I couldn't wait to meet her in person...so I asked some poor unsuspecting woman to deliver a note to Patty while I lingered in the hallway!

Myrinda...love ya girl ;)

The ever-beautiful Heather Bailey (and me totally star struck)

Sandi Hendersson in her FABULOUS booth...it was ridiculously yummy...I want to live there.

Chatting with Patty in her booth...it was OVER THE TOP CUTE!

A glimpse at her whole booth! It looked just like a living room...so comfy and warm!

Billboard photos in Paula's booth. That sweet little girl is her grand daughter...notice anything else ;)

Paula's booth...TOTAL eye candy...GORGEOUS and FRESH! And look at the jacket she is wearing made by Mary. You NEED one! I'll be ordering mine soon!

Paul and her beautiful daughter Jennifer. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting them in person. They are both so sweet, down to earth, and genuine. I consider it a huge privilege to have gotten to work with them both!

Paula's sample outfits hung sweetly in her booth.

Me, Caroline (J Caroline Creative), and Traci

The most adorable collection of stuffies I have ever laid my eyes on (I think I bought every pattern they make!)...scroll on down for a picture of the sweet owners (Meli and Me).

The gang out to lunch!

Me and Anna Maria Horner....seriously my hero. Gorgeous new fabric lines, published her own book (YES I bought one and had it signed!), and pregnant with #6...need I say more?

In Jay McCarroll's booth (Winner of Project Runway). I tried desperately to get him to agree to let me buy this shirt. He did agree it flattered me...but I couldn't pry it away from his marketing manager (she gave me some story about needing it for future shows...whatever) Hoping Jay strays into designing some KNITS!

AMY BUTLER. SIGH. (please disregard my half closed eye which makes me look like I either smoked something behind the convention center or had a match with Muhammad Ali before visiting her booth. This is after all AMY BUTLER...and although I look ridiculous SHE does not...beautiful, sweet, genuine.)

Me and Chelsea (Pink Fig Patterns)...living out the dream of all of us mere ebayers!!

Me with my duds (Kathy Miller of Michael Miller fabrics looking on wondering why I am lame enough to actually pose with this dress in someone else's booth!)

One more for posterity

The gals from Meli and Me. They are Australian and just a hoot! We had a great time discussing the proper term for diapers/pampers/nappies, etc. You MUST purchase a few of their patterns (which consequently are NOT for diapers but adorable stuffed animals).

Out to dinner (might I mention that poor P was the token male at this dinner...and responsible for the following pictures). From left to right: Myrinda, Me, Coree (Banberry Place), Traci, Mary, Jona (if you read this I need your website addy again...I seemed to have misplaced your business card!), Sheree (Sheree's Alchemy)

One more of us all lined up!

That's it! I had the privilege of meeting several other sweet gals (including Jona of Fabritopia) but for some reason never stopped to snap a picture.

I'm dreaming of how to procure my own booth at market some day. I have a few ideas up my sleeve...but for now...I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed cheering on my friends and basking in their success.

I'll post the winner of the giveaway within a day or two (the laundry is calling)...I haven't forgotten!!

Oh Jenn, I'm still swimming in the memories of meeting you and the other gals. I'm still on Cloud 9.

Your photos turned out so good, I must confess I "borrowed" the one of us, since it was better than mine.
