Spring Market 2011: Schoolhouse

[I am so sorry this is a day late, blogger was down for the past two days - but better late than never!]

Today the Jolly Pack went to Schoolhouse for the first time ever! For those of you who don't know what schoolhouse is, it is basically pattern and fabric designers that teach "students"- aka all of us attendees - more about their products. What is more you say, more are the inspirations behind their work and some really neat projects. Well, here is a few things we "learned" today...
