Houston was wonderful, as always! The Quilt Fest was great, too. Let's start off with a bang - I bought a new Bernina! So excited! I bought the 790 CE (Crystal Edition).
Here's a more appropriate masked photo (Bernina mask!) You can't see my big smile here though.
The machine comes with carrying cases for the machine and the embroidery module.
I will say this about the show: it was much smaller than usual. Usually there are around 1000 vendors, or maybe more. This year there were 206. So there were some vendors I really missed! Sue Spargo, Pineapple Fabric, Moda, Aurifil and so many more.
BUT, shopping was still fun, of course. Items that were on my shopping list (yes, I do take a list!), can easily be ordered online.
I got some Weeks Dye Works embroidery floss for a future cross stitch project.
And also I grabbed some Sue Spargo thread.
I bought these magnetic quilt hangers - I hope they work! I'll have two quilts to hang soon.
Micro Tip scissors.
I've been wanting to make some bags. So I came home with three different patterns. Here's a Tool Tote.
A Macaroon Bag along with the wristlet handle.
And a Big Mouth Pouch.
Zippers for the bags!
2 novelty charm packs - I plan to make an Eye Spy quilt.
And my biggest purchase other than the sewing machine was this wool kit of a gingerbread house Christmas scene. So cute! But I have to finish my wool Happy Birds before I start this!
So that's a good report on what I bought. I'll share some of the quilts I liked in another post.
My friends and I had a fabulous time - we always have fun together!
Continue to stay safe!
