It’s been and gone.
It’s true. My first experience at Quilt Market was done in a flash.
It was huge peeps. The space. The energy. The excitement. I have absolutely no regrets – and a head full of ideas. The challenge now is to put them into practice.
Imagine the entire Melbourne Exhibition and Convention centre (Jeff’s Shed) filled to capacity with quilts, fabric swatches, scissors and other craft notions? That’s a lot of pieces of fabric and a lot of colour.
Riley Blake and Moda are the two largest fabric design companies in the world, and each have an impressive line up of Australian designers. The Australians are definitely punching above their weight when you consider both the size of our population and their willingness to travel so frequently, to establish and maintain their brands globally.
And I have finally unpacked my suitcase – so there’s a bit to see.
