Spring Quilt Market 2014: Schoolhouse



Today was Schoolhouse! For anyone who hasn't attended Quilt Market before, Schoolhouse is a day packed full of lectures, classes, and demonstrations presented by designers, fabric companies, authors and anyone who has something new to show. Each session ranges from 10 minutes to an hour or more, and it is a constant go-go-go as you rush from class to class (just like real school, except you don't feel like playing hooky). It's a great time to connect with industry figures and catch a glimpse of the Market to come.
