It was a fantastic show this year. I had a great time connecting with dear friends, meeting with existing clients, meeting new companies and potential clients to license my artwork. I had the most amazing dinner with my fabric company Clothworks at Scarpetta. I enjoyed the company of industry colleagues and friends who are also working with Clothworks Ellen Crimi Trent Sharyn Sowell, yours truly , Chris Chun. I have so much to follow up with my head is spinning! Below is a picture of the designers and some of the yummy things we ordered. I sure do wish I had a picture of Ted from Clothworks who so kindly took us out. Thank you Clothworks I am hoping you have a great quilt market and can not wait to see the pictures!
I was also blessed to enjoy a fantastic dinner with my dear friends and kindred spirits. Beth Logan, Amber Alvarez, Jill Seale, Andrea Mistretta , little old me, Chris Chun (I was so lucky I got to have dinner with Chris twice, he flew all the way from the land of OZ to NY ), Linda Jacque, Jane Shasky. I was being picky about our table at first they put us outside, right in the loud streets of NYC. We changed tables and a few times the side door flew open. The universe wanted me to face my fears of those crazy streets.
Then I had some fun with Jill and Chris playing in Times Square. Normally I am scared being in a big crowd like this but I felt like I was surrounded by such good friends and energy, I felt lifted and detached from my surroundings. I am so blessed to have so many talented sweet friends in this business. You all just touch my heart!Jill & Chris enjoying NY NY!
Myself & Jill painting the town, Jill is the funniest person I know (other than Jon Stewart, I knew him for about 3 minutes) , Jill is a wordsmith, and amazing artist with a HEART of gold!!
Myself and my dear true blue bud Andrea M(flowers by Sweet Jane), we have been friends ever since we meet at Surtex and shared a booth many moons ago. Andrea is pure magic, she brings happiness every were she goes!! Thanks Andrea for your loving kinship over the years!!! She is a star and she and her art shine bright!
This is myself and my dear friend Beth(focus is overrated ) in my booth. If it was not for Beth my booths would be in bad shape(she is the queen of booth design and so many other things), she is my booth director and she supports me in so many ways. As you can see I love this girl .
I could go on and on and on about my artist friends: my new ones, my old ones, some I have mentioned and some not even at the show. I really cant get over the LOVE I get from this people. This is me in my booth. My artwork is new and not licensed yet (it will be soon I imagine) so I shall wait before I post my full booth.
I think I need to figure out how to set my point and shoot camera some of the photos are a bit grainy at times and kind of out of focus. Its a good thing focus is overrated. Thanks to everyone who shared all their love and support . My family has been amazing during the Surtex prep time. My son Max is my biggest fan. Love to all! Thanks to everyone who buys my art you guys rock!!
PS..guess what..... I am going to be on a video soon.....I shall keep this a surprise!
