Spring Quilt Market 2010

Here’s Bobbi and Kathy after a hard day of setting-up. We were happy because we thought we were almost done, but just kidding… the finishing touches took a lot longer than we expected. (Thanks to Kathy the finishing touches were well worth the effort).


Who would have ever thought deer netting would be such a nightmare to use.  Kathy had a love –hate relationship with it. It was hard to work with but the final result was amazing.

The Quilt Show was so much fun and we met so many amazing quilters and sewers. The show was a huge success and we’ll remember the friendships we made for years to come.




Kathy, Carolyn and Bobbi



We had a drawing everyday and the winners were:  


Harvest Moon Ladies won the Main Base


Ruth owner of Ruth’s Stitchery won the Main Base


Bear Claw Quilting Ladies won the Mini

Minneapolis is a gorgeous city and we loved all the buildings and the green trees. It was nice to get a break from the snow (yes it really did snow in Utah while we were gone and the snow even welcomed us home). We did not have much time for sight-seeing but we did have time to eat at some fabulous restaurants.

Here we are at Hell’s Kitchen. We are eating pancakes for dinner and they were to die for.  Kathy bought the cookbook and we’re going to try to make them. Email us if you want the recipe. The Jazz band was great and Carolyn looks like she may have seen a ghost.


Brit’s Pub was another fun restaurant we went to. We recommend the tomato soup and the salmon salad. We loved the outdoor atmosphere and watching the people pass by. We look tired in this picture because we were. This was after our second full day of set up.


Thanks to all of our new friends. For all those quilters and sewers out there make sure you check out the following companies: The Quilted Fish, Riley Blake Designs, Izzy n’ Ivy Designs, Abbey Lane, Serendipity Studio, Lizzie B Cre8ive!,  and Kati Cupcake. These were a few of our favorites, there are so many talented designers out there that we couldn’t name them all.  Sorry if we missed you.

Renee wasn’t able to attend the show due to her son getting ready to graduate from High School, and she had a new grandbaby join

her family  (He is adorable).  We missed her.

Simply Renee

  1. I would love to see your booth in person...you're not by any chance coming to Edmonton, Alberta the first weekend of October? I'll be at the Creative Stitches & Crafting Alive Expo with a few friends - Canadian Scrapbooker is going to be there too!
