Sew Business

Market is just around the corner!! This time of year we bring in lunches just to make sure the team is nourished. I can only imagine if they went out to lunch and were in some sort of accident.
Okay, I am a mother, I worry!
Look what else is right around the corner. Literally! I thought these were great for us to just hunker down and sleep right on the premises as if we were movie stars.  Each door marked with a star and our name to ensure the paparazzi knows which door to stake out.
Even parking signs for all the crew and the extras that we need to put the “SHOW”,
I mean “Market” together.
 What about a robot to help with laundry, cooking and cleaning? I love this place!
 Maybe I was dreaming or hallucinating. The robot was at the State Fair of Texas. Technology is everywhere. The car manufacturers replaced some of the cute, sexy models with a funny robot. He even stopped to pose when he saw me pointing the camera his way.
And as far as the celebrity dressing rooms, they really are just around the corner.
The warehouse next door is where the new series, Chase is being filmed.
I love this tag line from the Chase site.
Chase – Fall TV Sneak Peek: NBC’s Butt-Kicking Babes
I could easily describe the staff here the exact same way.
 (If any one from the Chase series is reading this…… if you need any fabric or quilts for your series, give me a holler!)
Seriously, wanted to show you a few sneak peeks that the butt kicking babes here are working on.

 Stacks of capsets for the most talented sales team in sew business. ( guess whose fabric collection?)
 A cart full of capsets from Aneela Hoey’s, break out line Sherbet Pips.
She will soon have her own star on the fabric walk of fame.

Waiting in the wings…. American Jane always poised for any appearance.

Time for another commercial break. (insert the Geiko lizard here.)

Gotta run…………Check back for more market peeks……………………..

    I have no idea what capsets are but if I could get my hands on one of those Sherbet Pips capsets I could whip out a rotary cutter and figure out something to do with it!

    You are a hoot!

    And,ahhhhh, judging by the pretty florals and soft lucious colors, that has to be Ms. Joanna's new line ☺
    I'd love to get my hands on any of those gorgeous fabrics, keep the peeks coming!

    I swear you have my dream job! Lots of work, but it is all so fascinating it seems like play. How fabulous to be able to be around all that talent and gorgeous new fabric.

    I hope you have a fabulous market! I'm Sandy's (AMERICAN JANE) machine quilter and I am so jealous that I'm not going to be at market this year. I'm always looking for quilts to stipple, so feel free to send them our way… And PS I really want to work for you too!
