Dragon Con!!!

You may have seen on last weeks blog and my social media, I will be a part of Dragon Con this year!!  Originally I was going to help a friend at their booth but was offered my own at the last minute.  You can find me in the America’s Mart building, third floor at booth 804.

This will be my first Dragon Con and I am very excited for it!

In addition to quilts, pillows, dice bags, quilt patterns, and quilt kits I will be carrying some very special products, Famore Scissors!!

These are my scissors of choice and all I use.  After repeated requests from you, I have given in and will be carrying them at shows!  Better yet, if you have questions about their scissors a representative will be with me to answer them!  This is your chance to see these scissors in person.  So swing by Booth 804 to see Quilt and Scissor goodness!

So Many Conventions!

I am in full swing of the convention busy season.  Last week GenCon was amazing as always.  I loved teaching English Paper Piecing and everyone walked away knowing how it is done!  The Catan mini quilt kits were a success!  This means I will design and create new kits for the future.  Want a Catan kit for yourself?  They will be available in my Etsy shop sometime in the next few weeks.

Next up is Dragon Con and I have some amazing news.  I HAVE MY OWN BOOTH!  They contacted me yesterday and offered me space and I jumped at the chance.  I will give all the details in next weeks post, but you can now find me at Dragon Con!!

In addition to Dragon Con I have added a few conventions over the next few months.  I am now going to Twitch Con at the end of October!!  I may have some cool giveaways in the future (including passes to Twitch Con) so stay tuned for that.  I am also going to New York Toy Fair at the beginning of November.  Those in addition to Forest City Comic Con, New York Comic Con, and Fall Quilt Market make my next few months extremely busy.

Now to rush to make stock for Dragon Con.  If you didn’t see videos of the Exploding Kittens booth, I present the video of Jordan and I buying goods and random items.

Made it to Maryland safely! While I decompress from GenCon here is a lovely video from when Jord and I made purchases from the Exploding Kittens booth and bought "random" items.

Gen Con!

Tomorrow is the start of GenCon and I am super excited!  It is one of my favorite conventions.  This year you can find Craft Hackers at Booth 1753.

Nicole and Marc from Rice Hat Samurai are both joining me again this year!

Marc has some amazing new jewelry, Nicole has a lot of new dolls and plush, and of course I have new quilts, pillows, quilt patterns, and quilt kits!

Nicole and I are also teaching classes again!  Nicole’s classes and some of mine are sold out, but there are still a few classes available.  You can also bring generic tickets and if someone doesn’t show up you can sit in on the class.

Quilt Commissions

I have officially closed commissions that are guaranteed by Christmas.  My next few months are going to be extremely busy!  That being said, I am trying to get through as many of my commissions as I can before the wave of conventions start.

Last week, I worked on making a weighted blanket live on Twitch.  You can see the video on my You Tube channel.

This afternoon I plan of working on Tetris quilts.  Tomorrow I will be working on a Ghostbusters Twin Sized Glow in the dark quilt.  Make sure you tune into my Twitch account if you would like to watch live!

Two weeks until GenCon!  I am so excited to each English Paper Piecing classes.  The classes are filling up, so make sure you sign up soon if you are interested.
