Fun Lady... Great Time.

We've all seen the little laminated patterns at the quilt shops. Cute, compact and easy to make - infact, most of us own at least one or two of them. This said, how many of us really know who's the designer and face behind them... well, I'm lucky enough to say "I do"!

I met Shelley Robson several years ago at a retreat. Her carefree, bubbly personality made it so easy to become friends with her. I was very familiar with her patterns, we've carried them in the shop for years and have enjoyed making them up. The shop hop was the perfect time to ask her to come join us for a few days and to introduce her "Complete" line to everyone. I was so surprised when she told me that she had 68 "Tiny" patterns and 12 new ones coming out at Quilt Market next month. Also, she has several books and other patterns that I was not familiar with.
I hope everyone had the chance to stop in, see her wonderful trunk show and get to chat with her. I'm glad I asked her and look forward to going to Forest City, IA where she also has a fabulous quilt shop - "The Quilted Forest"
Thank you again Shelley for adding to our Shop Hop, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
Many years of continued success ... keep those patterns coming, we love 'em.
