Pack your bags and drive along with Daria into “The U.S. of A” – haha! Quilt Market will never be the same again.

My apologies in advance, I was alone in the car for the first time without someone yelling “Mommy”. Here’s the first video of me on my way to Quilt Market in SLC, we have loads and loads of designer interviews on the way in the coming weeks (minus my singing I promise).

While you’re awaiting the Designer Interviews – why not kick back and read my Quilt Market Summary and view our hundreds of Market photos >>

Gearing up for International Quilt Market This week

May 10th, 2011

Boutique__pink-I am giddy that this week, in just a few days I’ll have the experience once again of attending Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. Quilt Market is a twice a year phenomenon where fabric designers, pattern makers, sewing enthusiasts and industry gather to showcase what they have been working on. It’s a treat and there is always great energy in the air. Sometimes you feel like you’re bursting with ideas just by being in the room.

We have been covering Quilt Market as Press for our viewers for several years now, and I have a feeling that this year is going to be the best ever! To share in all the creative fun I have a great team coming along with me – Emily our Contributing Editor and owner of Is This Really My Life, and Megan (our past Queen of Chat on Boutique Cafe) and owner of Brassy Apple. Aren’t I a lucky girl to have such a talented and amazing team?!! Just look for the two tall, amazingly stunning gals with cute hair and great shoes and you’ll spot Emily and Megan!! We are gearing up for all the fun and mayhem that Quilt Market provides. If you are attending and see us in the aisles please stop and say hello, we would love to meet you. I also have a few goodies to give away…shhhhhh its kind of a surprise.

Boutique Cafe will be featuring a huge selection of Market interviews, pictures and oodles of giveaways with many of your favourite designers, so be sure to check back here for post-Market coverage. We will even be partying with many bloggers at the Quilt Market Meet-up on Saturday evening. Thursday evening I’m hoping to make it to Quilt Market Sweet Treats and Drinks, a mixer so I’m crossing my fingers that my plane arrives on time for us to attend. It’s going to be a whirlwind of a weekend (feet don’t fail me now), but I can’t wait to get back and share all that we have discovered with you.

See you in SLC and beyond everyone! XO - Daria

If you have questions for specific designers, we would love to capture them answering you on video. Simply post or email your question and we’ll do our best to ask the designer for you at Market. Just a fun way to bring you all along with us.

Show #130 – Yeah Baby We’re Back!

March 16th, 2011

Screen shot 2011-03-16 at 10.12.35 PM In this Podcast Episode: Daria shares details on the upcoming Quilt Market and International Quilt Festival.

Quilt Market is ON!

May 21st, 2010

Meeting in person finally!

Oh how I love Quilt Market! The fabrics, the fun, the crazy antics with all my designer pals (sleepless nights up talking for hours, and sore feet). Unfortunately I’m not in Minneapolis for the 2010 Spring show this weekend. I’m so depressed about it, that I’m posting a happy picture of years past when I was able to attend in Portland and meet designer Amy Butler in person for the first time!

Even though I’m not there to cover the event this Spring…do not despair because Bari J. Ackerman is our Official Correspondent for Boutique Cafe (she has biz cards and everything!). Bari will be conducting video interviews at Quilt Market and bringing the footage back to share on Boutique Cafe’s podcasts. We’re so excited!! We love Bari, she attended Fall Market and snagged some outstanding interviews and information for our viewers last year. I’m so grateful she’s up for the challenge again.

If you’re at Market this weekend be sure to snag Bari and tell her all about your fabrics, patterns and how much you LOVE Boutique Cafe – you might just get featured!!

Greetings Boutique Cafe Viewers! It’s been awhile since our last show, my apologies for taking a break from podcasting over the past few months due to illness in my pregnancy.

In our chat, we discuss her book “Seams to Me”, Good Folks fabric line, new patterns available, and her exciting pregnancy coinciding with a Little Folks fabric line as well.

Show #97 – At Market with Joel Dewberry

July 3rd, 2008

At Market with Joel Dewberry In our continuing video coverage of the Spring 2008 International Quilt Market from Portland, Daria interviews fabric and textile designer Joel Dewberry. With his unique blend of Eclectic and Modern styling, he’s inspiring all of us to bring a little touch of both into our lives and homes. Thank you so much Mr. Dewberry, it was such an honor to meet you.

***Not even an issue with our audio could keep us from posting this interview!. We’re sorry for the background noise.
