International Quilt Market in Minneapolis Minnesota. We spent a few days driving across several states to arrive in Minneapolis ready to set up for Quilt Market. Quilt Market is a wholesale trade show for the quilting industry which shop owners from all over the world attend to spend several days in classes....meeting....and walking aisles and aisles of vendor booths checking out what is new!! Vendors have 2 days to set up their booths and 5 hours to tear down!! It is lots of work.....but always a joy to see old friends/customers.....and make new ones too!!!

My favorite part of attending quilt market is the fun I have seeing all the friends that I have made over the years and the joy in making new ones!! We had great neighbors and made new friends with Anni and Peter of Hatched and Patched from Austrailia......They were so helpful and such a joy to visit with!!
