I've spent the weekend in Melbourne at Australian Quilt Market (AQM) with Helen for Pattern Press.
As always I had a great time, talking the quilting lingo with many shop owners and catching up with many designers. All the best Aussies were there, Lynette Anderson, Gail Pan, Annie Downs, Natalie Bird, Libby Richardson, Monica Poole, Jodie Carlton, Melly and Me, Rosalie Quinlan, Nicky Tervo and of course Helen Stubbings just to name drop a few. Some of us had a great night out on Saturday, they really are an inspiring bunch to be around.
The Pattern Press stand looked fabulous as always.
Here's Helen with machine quilting extraordinaire and sister Tracey Browning and in the centre Cornelian, a new BOM.
More Hugs 'n Kisses, Opus Tweet another new BOM on the left was very popular.
The Pattern Press stand was also supported by Melissa Grant of One Day in May and Paula Storm Designs (sorry no pics). Lovely to meet both ladies.
I did get to do a little shopping, fabrics and patterns, lucky Helen had some room coming home in her suitcase.
As always the weekend flies by too quickly and now we're sitting waiting for our flight home and back to my real day job tomorrow.
Roll on Pittsburgh USA 2014!
