Ok so yesterday I covered most of what I did at Schoolhouse, if you want another good detailing of it check out I'm a Ginger Monkey, she went to more sessions then I did, and I think got waaaay better pics!

Fabric 2.0 was a great party Friday night, I have pictures with people that are missing, which is really making me sad, but it was probably one of the best parts of Market for me. I got to meet and talk with so many incredibly talented people in a fairly relaxed setting.
Here is Stephanie from Fat Quarter Shop, she and I email back and forth about #talknt all the time so it was great being able to put a face to the email address.

Sarah Fielke may be one of the funniest people in quilting. She's an Aussie who designs for Lecein, and her book Little Things is now available in the North America.

These little butterfly's Sarah is wearing became on of the must haves of Market, she had tons of them made up in different prints from her St. Ives line.

So from this point on my pictures from Fabric 2.0 are missing and I really could cry about that as I had ones taken with Joanna of Fig Tree, Kate Spain, Melissa from Generation Q Magazine and a host of other really talented and awesome people.

But at Market there is no rest so it went on and so will I!
After a great gabfest with Laine, Jacqueline, Sha, and Tiffany and about 4 hours sleep it was off to the Market floor!

I saw Ellen Medlock, for whom I had done a quilt pattern for, and she had the quilt to show off at Market!

I meet up with Niki from Stitchin Heaven who I just ADORE! I'm going to be so sad when we're not doing charm school etc anymore.

And as I ran around Market I ran into, sometimes litteraly, all sorts of talented people.
The awesome Pat Sloan with Niki! I may have been super hyper so I think Pat may be slightly terrified of me now, though I do have a new Sullivan Ruler to check out and tell you all about!

Like Linda Lum DeBono! 

 In between running into all the awesome people were all the gorgeous booths! I couldn't get over the creativity of so many people. Honestly just mind boggling.

 This is from BasicGrey's booth, Hello Lucious will be out in the spring and it is just stunning! I really love the colours in this one.

 From the Moda booth's Papillon from 3 Sisters.
 Minik & Simpson
Me and My Sister

Rouenneries Deux from Moda!! You know I'm just ecstatic over this one being redone!

 That gorgeous lady is Tula Pink, fabric designer extraordinaire and visionary in the quilt world, she is blazing some awesome trails with her designs and use of colour.

 Alma from Blackbird Designs, I LOVE Blueberry Crumble, it has awesome light and dark blues, with whites and tans. Really a great line, especially if you want to do a blue work quilt.

 Sweetwater!! What more do I need to say???

StudioKat had a lot of really nice bag patterns, I especially like the orange one in the back with sunflowers.
 Could it be? Is it she? The awesome Kate Spain! Designer of Terrain, Fandango, Verna and now Good Fortune! And one of the sweetest people I met.

And the adorable girls from LizzieBCre8tive Liz and Beth!

There's Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill designs newest BOM, using Rouenneries Deux! 
 This one is from Laundry Basket Quilt and the new line is called Love Letters.
 Part of the Aurifil display! I couldn't get a shot of the table, which they had done up like Thanksgiving dinner, with coloured thread as all the "food". It was really well done!

So blogger won't let me add more pictures so another update is coming soon!
