Coats & Clark featured our Star brand of quilting thread in our booth along with our Dual Duty XP threads. Star Threads are especially for quilters. Thread artist Terry White was demonstrating thread painting using Star Multicolors in our booth. She created 24 new multicolor combinations introduced at Market. Be sure to visit our Star website to learn more about Star threads.
The big buzz at Market was the appearance of Ty Pennington from Extreme Home Makeover. He has designed a line of fabrics for Free Spirit Fabrics and was there to present the fabrics, and oh yes, sign autographs.
A big attraction at Market and Festival are the beautiful quilts. All of the winning quilts are on the Quilts, Inc website. They are the highest level of skill and talent.
One of my favorites was this haunting portrait by Hollis Chatelain from Hillsborough, NC. If you look closely, you can see faces in the quilting of the overall face.
Here are some more views of our booth! Look for new Star Threads and many more new quilting goodies in your local quilt shop.
