Cathy, kelly and I just visited Portland for Spring Quilt Market. Spring is my favorite market as there always seems to be a feeling of excitement and energy. It was a fabulous show in one of my favorite cities to visit. The market was buzzing with many enthusiastic shoppers as well as a few new fresh ideas. We picked up some new products that I will be using in my designs as well as featuring on the website in the next few months. We bought new fabrics from our favorite companies and look forward to featuring eclectic samplings on the website. I was able to visit with many of my friends from Australia and the US enjoying many lovely meals.
After market Wendy my sister and two of our friends from Toowomba in Australia, Lisa and Majella joined me to explore Portland. We had a fabulous day visiting the Japanese Gardens followed with days filled with shopping and exploring. Susan my friend taxied us to quilt and knitting stores, antique stores and many other fun places. We also sampled some of the best of Portland eateries along with great coffee from Stumptown and unbelievable Rhubarb ice cream from Salt and Straw.
Despite two days of continual rain much fun was had my all. As I always say it is impossible to go shopping with Wendy unless you start a few new knitting projects. This time was no different! I am sure Lisa and Majella will be knitting all the way home to AU.
Keep creating and stitching
