Quilt Market 2012!

So this was definitely our best quilt market ever!!
And winning the best new exhibitor award didn’t hurt either.

I’m not going to lie…this whole booth experience was A LOT of hard work. But in the end…I think we all agreed that it was totally worth it.

A little sleep deprivation never hurt anybody right?

Ok…so there was some fun to be had within our little 8×10 foot space.

And I do have to have to hand it to Lauren and Mom. As they managed to design what my husband called “a nice corner of an Anthropologie store” for us to spend our weekend. Don’t worry, we documented it well..

But more than winning the Best New Exhibitor award…and having the chance to spend a lot of time with each other in a tight space with nowhere to sit…the best part about market (and I know this sounds cheesy) was getting to know so many new people! From quilt store owners to our fellow Moda designers.

So there you have it. 2012 Spring Quilt Market = Success!
Oh, and Birds & Berries will be in stores this August, so be on the lookout!

More From Corinna

My husband and I don’t have kids yet…But when we do, I’m hoping we have at least one girl so that I can dress her up in one of Corinna’s creations…

We couldn’t resist sharing with you guys the Birds and Berries dresses that Corinna from Corinna Couture sent us for our booth at market. These little gems arrived in the mail yesterday…

Being suckers for packaging, we were impressed even before we saw what she made. And I think it goes without saying that miss Corinna really outdid herself with these. They are beautiful, and we can’t wait to show them off in our booth!

And in typical Jung fashion, we took copious amounts of photos, but I think you can understand why this time…

And if you happen to have a little girl that you think would look perfect in one of these dresses, Corinna is taking pre orders! You can find more photos and details on her Facebook page .

The Sign We Made

This is our sign for Market. We made it ourselves out of poster board, fabric, glue, and a Sharpie.

And we bought the frame at Hobby Lobby.

I love Hobby Lobby.

All Dressed Up

A few weeks ago…we had the pleasure of meeting a woman named Corinna!

And when I say meet, I mean we discovered each other through the wonders of Facebook.

You see, about two weeks ago, as I was checking our Facebook Fan Page for updates, I was pleasantly surprised to see that Corinna Hyde of Corinna Couture had shared some photos of her new summer dress line that feature our Flora fabric!

And if you can’t already tell from the photos, Corinna is quite the talented children’s dress maker (Mom and I have always had a solid respect for anyone who sews clothes…which are a little out of our sewing league). In fact, I almost wish some of her designs came in adult sizes too!

But really, Corinna’s awesomeness goes beyond the fancy clothes she makes. Because, in addition to designing 4 of the dresses in her summer line around our Flora fabric, she has also generously offered to make a few dresses out of our new line, Birds & Berries, for display in our booth at market next week. Thanks Corinna!

And these pictures are just a sampling of Corinna’s work! She has a Fan Page on Facebook, but more importantly, she also has an Etsy Shop where you can buy one of these little gems for yourself.

So, thanks for sharing your talents with us, Corinna! We can’t wait to see the Birds & Berries dresses, and we’ll be sure to tout your mad dress making skills at market.

Lauren & Jessi Pretending To Be Construction Workers

So this year, we decided to have a booth of our own at Quilt Market in May to show off our newest line, Birds & Berries.

I’m currently living in New Jersey and my mom is down in Spartanburg SC, so I drove down to her place for a week with the goal of finishing our booth.

Not knowing where to start, we decided to just drive over to the Home Depot and take it from there.

We walked around aimlessly for a while until one of the employees asked us if we needed help.

Which we REALLY did.

I showed the guy a photo of a booth from my iPhone… which he used to draw us up a little diagram… PLUS measure out all the wood for us…

After him, we talked to 7 other employees while gathering the remainder of our supplies… each of whom taught us something new and exciting about building materials.

We now love the Home Depot and its team of incredibly helpful employees!

I have to say… throughout everything, my mom has been quite the little trooper. She didn’t want to actually build a booth for our first year because curtains would have been a much easier alternative. But in the end, I think we were both really happy.

The rest of the story probably isn’t that funny to any one else except us. Ha. Suffice it to say this little adventure consisted of 5 long days of the “blind leading the blind”.

And… we wouldn’t have finished at all had it not been for our next-door neighbor Mac McPherson checking up on us everyday to make sure that we were on the right track. :)

And actually, truth be told… we didn’t QUITE finish. The basic structure is finished, and we painted our walls. But we still have yet to actually do a trial run to make sure that this puppy isn’t going to topple over.
