If you haven't had time to check out our videos from Houston, be sure to have a look this week!
We now have 6 videos from the quilt festival and IQA exhibits, and the latest one features Portrait and Figurative art quilts... one of MY favorite categories!
Friday was Double Fun at eQuilter - our staff had Ugly Christmas Sweater Day (complete with prizes for funniest and ugliest sweater) - and the editors of Quilters Newsletter Magazine came to tour our warehouse, offices, and new studio. What fun! Thanks Lori and Bill!
Today I spoke to a group of licensed artists who meet monthly to network and share about their end of the industry. A few of them have products on our shelves... the rest would *like* to have their work on our shelves! I gave them a tour of our warehouse and my new studio, and we had a potluck lunch in our employee break room.
It was a test run for my future plans to have classes and events in my new studio space. I think everybody had a great time so I am going to start making plans for events here in 2015.
Paul has set up our video studio in my space also, and I'd like to put out an invitation to all the designers whose work we carry at eQuilter: if you are going to be in Boulder and would like to come and talk about your work in an eQuilter video, please contact us in advance!
The most important thing I have to share this week, is that Paul lost his dad this week. Fred Rubin was 89, and one of the last remaining World War II veterans. Paul's parents were married 67 years, raised 4 kids, and had a successful family business. It is a great loss to the family, but Fred lived a very long full life, and we are grateful that his passing was quick and without suffering.
