 575. Quilt Market Trends Recap | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1586

A few weeks ago, our staff travelled to Houston, Texas, for Quilt Market. Quilt Market is a show for people in the industry to gather, talk about the state of the industry, make connections, and find ways for us all to work together. We use the event specifically to find new products and fabrics to feature, and find new designers to work with. We also use this event to look at trends in the industry. From neon fabrics to gnome motifs to eco-friendly products, we're sharing all the trends we saw and what to expect to hit stores next year. We also share 5 reasons to decorate for the holidays early, tips for planning your handmade gifts, and quilting products we're loving right now.
