Hey There Neighbor!

One of the great things that happened this past week at market was meeting all the cool people. People you've heard about or bought their patterns or seen their books. Maybe you saw them on Simply Quilts. People I consider "Celebrities".. not because they're on Entertainment Tonight but because they're walking the Red Carpet of the Quilting World.

Tammy Tadd is one of those people. She's got a gazillion books out there, has been on Simply Quilts, and is pretty well known out in Quilt World. And we were lucky enough to have her as a neighbor on row 1000.

This is Tammy's crew, Sherry, Joy and Velda her mom. Tammy on the right.

They had a big booth. Thursday afternoon was setup and we were working away. Friday morning came and still no Tammy and Co. I was getting worried that wow, how is she going to get her big booth up and ready in time for the show. Off we went for some shopping and dinner and when we arrived back for sample spree the booth was set up and they were already gone. They're champions I tell you. Amazing.

They're also hilarious. We had a total blast being across from them. As experienced exhibitors, they really know the ropes. They have this wonderful cushioned floor. We were pea green my friends, after a day of standing out front on the cement floor passing out brochures. Sunday morning and there in our booth was a little chunk of their floor for us. Don't kid yourselves, we were fighting over it. Seriously.

To thank them we left them a big heart of pink and green Starburst candy. And not just any Starburst, (baja) California flavored Starburst. Because we're Cali Girls. Ok, so maybe to you viewers at home it's not that hilarious but we all had a big laugh over it.

Lots of people know Tammy. They swarm the booth. One of their friends, Cindee Ferris, was in the booth on and off. She was working the Boulder Creek Designs booth and also working her extremely funny Molly Shannon Routine. She and Sherry were killing me with their antics.


We had a blast with these girls. Thank goodness for you I don't have pictures of our Dance Party. I don't know what I was thinking, probably not thinking at all because TOO MUCH CANDY PAM???? Anyway those pictures could be on Australian Patchwork and Quilting's site at some point. That woman thought we were pretty funny.

Thanks again, Tammy, Sherry, Joy and Velda for making last week very memorable for me.
