Is everyone geared for the shows next week? I am eagerly awaiting a trip report from the Dallas Market from someone with fresh eyes. I’m trying not to have my hopes up but this report matters because this person is attending the show with a highly successful and prestigious retailer. I’m dying to know how she picks her lines -mostly bridge and better.

There’s also a fabric show for those in the Chicago area. Yes, it’s the Chicago Fabric and Trim Show held at the Conference Center Merchandise Mart (Pedway) on October 22nd and 23rd. Be sure to stop by and see Jay Arbetman (Arbetman and Assoc.) who is a friend of ours. This is a great show to attend if you’re looking for smaller quantities.

And now, the entries from the archives. Reminder: if you get a page not found error, simply delete the “.html” from the end of the url to get there. Don’t forget the period. Have a good weekend.
