Show #102 – Myrinda from Fabric Hound At Market

November 13th, 2008

Boutique Cafe made some history at Quilt Market, as we are the first media outlet to offer a live feed directly from Market! What a thrilling (and scary) experience to attempt such a technical feat on my own.

Here is the raw video interview hosted on Ustream.tv of Myrinda owner of Fabrichound.com and myself. What a fun opportunity to hear about Market from a retailer/buyers perspective. Thanks Myrinda for taking the time to do this Live Feed interview with me!
