Quilt Market Recap

We had a great time at International Quilt Market, May 16-18, 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA. This is our booth! Welcome to Cuddle World- The Softest Place on Earth™ 

Quilt Market Pittsburgh

We reconnected with old friends, met new friends, and showed off our beautiful new products! We were busy—we participated in Sneak Peek, Schoolhouse, Sample Spree and also gave hourly demos. Here’s a quick recap.

The day before the show opened, we had Schoolhouse. We showed new products (Cuddle™ Precuts, Cuddle Kits, and more), discussed a few favorite notions, and offered tips on how shops can partner with us for success. Here we are at Schoolhouse:

We also demoed tips on using our other fabrics- such as faux fur. Did you know we not only have luscious Fabulous Faux furs  but we also have Silky Satins- in solids and prints, Textured Soft Cuddle, and even Terry Cloth?!
