International Quilt Market

This year we are very blessed to have the Spring International Quilt Market be hosted in Minneapolis, MN, which is only 2 hours away.  Quilt Market is a trade-show that is only open to shops.  Since we are new to this industry we didn't think we should miss it since it is so close.  My mom and I made the trek North yesterday with good weather and only got a little lost trying to find our hotel.  We are staying at the Millenium Hotel, which is very nice and is connected by a sky-walk to the Convention Center where the Market is being held (appreciated since it's raining today).

After hanging out in the hotel and getting a project underway (yes, I did bring my sewing machine) we set out to find some supper.  We found a place called The Brit, which was the first time we had ever had British cuisine.  My mom had Bangers and Mash (sausages and mashed potatoes) and I had Steak and Ale Pie with chips.  The food was very good and filling.  It was interesting, though, that both our meals came with a side of peas, must be a British thing!

On our walk back to the hotel I took a few photos of some of the buildings and sculptures that are along the Nicollet Mall, where our hotel is.  Unfortunately, they are not loading so I will have to try and do to upload those at another time.

We had our first lesson this morning and I commented to Mom that I wish we had signed up for a few more, but there's always next time.  I'll try and post some pictures from the Market tomorrow and maybe some of the project I'm working on in the room.

Happy sewing!
