The left side of the virtual booth
with Rose Kretsinger greeting visitors
For Spring Market at Pittsburgh this week I am introducing two new products, so
I'll be doing Schoolhouse presentations for Moda and C&T Publishing.
First: The book Karla Menaugh and I wrote for C&T called
We actually are planning Schoolhouse talks for Thursday May 15th but we really don't rent a booth.
However, I enjoy planning a virtual booth. For the virtual booth we are decorating the walls in old postcard pictures of the town of Emporia, Kansas. Because it is a virtual booth we can invite virtually anybody to sit with us (even quilters who have gone to the great Bee in the sky.)
Right side of the booth:
Charlotte Jane Whitehill and her Paradise Garden quilt
We asked Emporia quiltmakers Charlotte Jane Whitehill and Rose Kretsinger to sign and chat.
The book won't be out till mid-June so virtual autographs are all we can expect.
Second: I'll have a new reproduction fabric collection for Moda called Richmond Reds.
Center of the booth with Richmond Reds quilt and fabrics
In the center we'll switch cities to Richmond, Virginia, with postcard backgrounds,
fabric strikeoffs so you can handle them and our project quilt.
Virtual Triple Booth
How these parts are going to coordinate is still a mystery to me but I am hoping the rug will pull the whole room together.
