Spring International Quilt Market: Salt Lake City

Quick recap:

I spent 5 straight days in about 80 square feet.

My mom & a few good friends were there to force me to talk, and remind me to eat.

If I had my way, I probably would have sat in the corner and only spoke when spoken to.

But I’m so glad I didn’t.

There were too many amazing people to meet to stay locked up in my introverted-ness.

And meet them, I did. (Pictures of friends, soon.)

Didn’t get pictures of other booths, because I couldn’t really leave mine for more than a few minutes at a time. (But I think there are enough pictures floating around out there that you’ll get to see the amazing talent going on…)

One quilt market down, dozens to go.

Somehow, I think this was the hardest and it will all get easier from here on out, because I know what to expect.

Quilt market=made of awesome.

      Yeah, people who know me probably think they can’t get me to shut up either, at least on certain topics I am excited about. :) Market WAS a lot of fun.

    Great pictures. I’m shy when I’m around a lot of new people. I have a hard time verbalizing when I’m around people I know, let alone strangers. I turn beet red. But when I’m relaxed and talking about things I’m excited about I tend to ramble on too. I’m glad you had a good time and enjoyed meeting people. Your booth looked great.

      Thanks! It’s something I’m working on, the socializing. I’m getting better at it, but it definitely leaves me exhausted.
