Each Market, there is a "class" you can take called Sample Spree, where you can see all of the newest lines of fabric in fat quarter bundles and purchase them for sample quilts. This is what I did at the big Market in Houston last October. I purchased Moda's "Swell" line and created my free 2008 Block-of-the-Month through my website. Going to Sample Spree is terrific in that it gives shop owners and designers a chance to view all of the fabric lines coming out at one time. This saves going around to each booth during the Market and provides an opportunity to see what lines have potential for current or future designs.
I'm looking forward to spending time at Market, this next week, and look forward to discovering new opportunities for SuzGuz Designs.
