Spring Market 2010: Fabric 2.0 and Sample Spree - The Jolly Jabber Quilting Blog

Spring Market 2010: Fabric 2.0 and Sample Spree

Hi guys! Here we are in Minneapolis, MN, finally (after the usual airplane delays, broken airplanes, aircraft changes, etc. You know the drill). No photos from traveling, because you’d probably just see some frustrated faces! Anyhoo, we’re ready to see what Spring Quilt Market has to offer. (If you don’t know what Market is, you can read about it in this previous post.)

Tonight we kicked off the start of Market by doing a little mingling at Fabric 2.0 (a meet & greet for bloggers) hosted by the always charming j. caroline. Chatted with the know-it-all of fabric, True Up’s Kim Kight, and met Kelly Stevens, Melissa Averinos, and Betz White

We only got to stay for a little bit though, because…

Then we headed to Sample Spree!! Yes, it’s every quilter’s dream to rummage through Sample Spree. In fact, the first ladies to enter the room rushed in at full speed, shrieking like someone was chasing them! (Someone had asked if Sample Spree was a free-for-all; it can feel like it, yeah! The goods are future release lines usually, at greatly reduced prices so shops can get it ahead of time and make samples for their stores.)

Anyhoo, here’s what waiting in line for this event looks like…well, it’s even longer than it looks…

And the doors are finally opened! Hurrah! And watch out!

People we saw…
Anne Sutton with a little “Scooter Pie” goodie made from her own fabric for Moda, Lily & Will! So darn in love with this line, especially since little Will Jolly is one of the namesakes!

Barbara Jones of Quilt Soup, showing off her patterns and fabrics for Henry Glass, including her newest Hip Holidays!

Barb & Mary of Me and My Sister Designs showing their Moda lurve.

Kaari Meng (French General) and Joanna Figueroa watching the madness from a safe distance.

Money shots of the Moda booth, pre-crowd!

And what we snagged for tonight’s Sample Spree giveaway!! A Bliss Fat Quarter Bundle and a Maison de Garance Fat Quarter Bundle by Bonnie & Camille and French General!

  5. I'm excited just to see the Bliss FQB! But otherwise, Id love to see all the new fabrics and patterns that will be coming our way πŸ™‚

  6. Wow! Quilt market always looks to incredible! It's wonderful that the rest of us and join you virtually, keep up the news!

  7. What a lovely giveaway! But such an unfair question? Whose booth am I looking forward to? All of them! I love Moda like everyone does, and btw, thanks for the pic of Kaari Meng and Joanna Figuerola, two of my favourite designers! Looking forward to theirs too and the new line of Amy Butler, then Anna Maria Horner,Heather Bailey, Sandi Henderson, Joel Dewberry… I am sure you want me to stop now don't you? So I will but there are SO many talented designers out there.. and lots of exciting very new ones too. Thanks for all the pictures, so looking forward to experiencing market with you! and thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I couldnt decide whose booth I would like to see first. I have never experienced anything like market before so I would probably be the one in the middle in the fetal position crying 'I dont know where to start. Help me!!' I would love to win some Bliss though πŸ™‚

  9. Where to start? I think I would love seeing all the booths but especially those of my favourite designers.

  10. I wish I was there! I would like to see Moda… Greetings from Slovakia and thanks for a great giveaway:-)

  11. I would just love to be there the Sample spree sounds like a lot of fun.
    I think I am looking forward to all the new fabrics coming our way soon (I have a quilt design in mind I know just need to find the right fabric)

  12. You lucky people!! I wish I could be there too but as I live in Sweden it's not possible unless I win the lottery. But this way I follow you and at least be able to look at all the fun. I find it impossible to pick one booth as a favorite as I love everything you show.
    Have a great time,
    Lotta in Sweden

  13. I'd love to see it all; most likely the booths I'd enjoy are the smaller ones that just look special! Moda's pre-cuts always make me drool. πŸ™‚ You can contact me using forsara at netzero dot net thanks!

  14. Oh I wish I could just get my hands on that whole moda precuts table before everyone!!! Wow you must be having so much fun at market!! I am excited to see French General and Lauren and Jessie Jung (not sure if that is spelt right?)

  15. Always want to see the MODA booth and Sandi Henderson's as well.
    I sure would like to experience Market sometime.

  16. I don't know that I could pick a booth that I would be excited to see (vicariously through your blog). I'm not sure I know enough about fabric to pick a designer or a manufacturer or whatever. I really enjoyed seeing these pictures, though!

  17. I cannot wait to see Anne Sutton's Bunny Hill Designs booth. I always love everything she designs..and now she has MODA fabric!!! Yeah!!!

    Wish I could visit but it is a long way from the Netherlands.
    Have fun

  22. Wow what a rush seeing all those yummies for the first time. I too would rush to the French General booth, their fabrics just sing to me.

  23. Looks like it would be a version of heaven for a patchworker and quilter – only problem would the bank balance stand going to 'heaven'!!

  24. Oh, gosh, I don't KNOW whose booth I most want to see! I think I'd like to see Monica at the Lecien booth, or maybe Anne Sutton's Bunny Hill booth. Or Carrie Nelson's. Or Sweetwater's. But really? I'd just love to wander around market and see all the creativity that goes into designing the booths. I'm looking forward to seeing all your photos!

  25. Please show us French General's booth!!! Thanks for letting us get a sneak peak at what goes on behind the scenes. Love to see what is happening at Market. You guys are the best!

  26. I love Barb and Mary's lines! I would have loved to see anything new they have out πŸ™‚ I'm so jealous! I really love Deb Strains lines, wondering if she's got anything new coming out πŸ™‚

  144. I would love more than anything to attend a big quilt show like this just to gaze at and fondle fabric. I could not imagine having to pick one booth to look at. You should see me at my own local quilt store. I could sit in there for hours, and it's tiny.

  145. My favorite is Moda but it all looks so good. It's fun to see what we really can't see. Thanks for sharing. Enjoy the rest of the trip.

  220. I can't wait to see Fig Tree's booth – her colours are just so refreshing and elegant. And then being a Brit, I always like to see what red, white and blue Americana ideas are over at Minnick & Simpson. One day I might get to see in person – for now I rely on you to do a great job!

  221. Do you hyperventilate, when you are looking at all the new fabrics and tools that are soon to be on the market? I do!

  222. It looks like it could become a fabric feeding frenzy! There are so many ideas motivated from seeing the new fabrics!

  223. I'd love to see anyone's booth in person (I live in almost outback Australia)… living vicariously through you, I enjoy looking at everything that's on offer. I feel that I'm looking into the futur, as a few of these ranges won't make it to my lqs for quite some time.

  224. I would love to win!
    What fun everyone must be having.
    I love seeing all that fabric and the patterns….

  248. Oh Wow! Love both lines of fabric. I could use either one. I actually went to market, and was so overwhelmed by the Moda crowd, that I kind of lost my interest in buying anything. I was so mad at myself for not fighting harder to get one of the Bliss lines, so if I could win it…I'd be a happy girl! Thanks for the chance.

  249. I was really wanting to see the Moda stands, Michel Miller, Happy Zombie's gnomes in situ, they are amazing. LOve the look of the yummy Maison de Garance, thanks so much for all the pics.
