Market Week

And so it begins. Most of the crew travels to Kansas City on Wednesday. The designers arrive on Thursday – except for a few that just can’t stand not being there every second.

Here’s the schedule for us… Booth set-up starts on Wednesday as soon as we arrive at the Convention Center. Parts of it go fast and other parts… a bit more slowly.

Thursday is Schoolhouse – it’s a series of presentations dedicated to raising profitability and reach. It’s an opportunity to gain tips, information and knowledge about new products, and long-time favorites with ideas for marketing, classes, events, and kits. (It’s a lot more interesting and fun than that sounds.)

  • 1:20 – 1:50 pm – Moda Designers
  • 1:20 – 1:50 pm – Jan Patek
  • 1:55 – 2:25 pm – Barbara Groves & Mary Jacobson of Me & My Sister
  • 2:30 – 2:45 pm – Stacy Iest Hsu
  • 2:30 –  2:45 pm – Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters
  • 2:50 – 3:05 pm – Lynne Hagmeier of Kansas Troubles Quilters
  • 3:10 – 3:30 pm – Project Jelly Roll 2019
  • 3:45 – 4:15 pm – Corey Yoder & Sherri McConnell
  • 4:55 – 5:25 pm – Moda All-Stars Are On A Roll

Market opens on Friday morning at 9:30 am. We’ll have book-signings in the Moda booth.

Friday – May 17

Saturday – May 18

If you’re on Facebook and Instagram, we’ll be sharing the goings on from Market there.

There’s more… but that will have to wait until tomorrow.

  1. Don’t drink too much coffee. Looks like they don’t give you very long potty breaks between the speakers!! And you can just send me the whole pile of mini charms – they all look too cute!!!

  2. I wish the general public could go to these events. It would be such fun to see everything and the designers and manufacturers.

  3. I love Market time and the photos that come with it! But I really want to know the details on Project Jelly Roll 19!

  4. I loved working Quilt Market when you all were here in St. Louis. I plan on being there next year in Pittsburgh!

  5. Are your markets open to the public or are these only for retailers? I’m new to quilting, so I’m trying to learn all I can. Thank you.
