Quilt Market Weekend

Hi All,
We're just breathing a deep sigh after a big weekend at Treadle Yard Goods.
This past weekend Minneapolis hosted the International Spring Quilt Market, and as a result we had a bevy of activity in the shop.
Friday we had a visit from Linda Lee from Sewing Workshop, and Saturday we had a book signing by Anna Maria Horner.(Shown here with some of her lovely family, little Roman was getting sleepy, but still the life of the party!)
We also had visitors from all over the globe.
There were women from Moscow and Australia, Colorado and Texas.
We also had visits from a few fabric designers.
This is Mary, our fearless leader, with Katie Hennigar, the designer of the Chirp line from Robert Kaufman.
We couldn't have hosted this particular event without the wonderful culinary talents of Meg and Mike.
Their tapenade was delicious!
Thanks to all of the customers who came and shared in the fun this weekend, and big thanks to our visitors.
