Another Fall Quilt Market came to the end last week in Houston.


HOUSTON 2008    AURIfil USA attended the Market with an end-cap booth and had a wonderful and successful show!    Elena Gregotti, AURIfil USA CEO, Davide and Roberta introduced during the show the whole collection of table top and floor displays with all the 4 cotton weights in little, regular spools and cones, our wool and the 32 must-have colors that Marti Michell, our official spokeperson, chose for a special table top display.

During the Market AURIfil USA planned 2 special events:

Marje wanted to let people practise all 4 cotton weights on the two machines made samplers.  The first sampler was machine appliqué technique and the second sampler was machine quilting.  All the attendants were satisfied of the result!

New ideas and projects are now under construction for the next Quilt Market.On Monday evening, after dismantelling the booth and closing up the big wooden case, AURIfil USA team relaxed watching the concert of the uncomparable Tina Turner!
