Back from Spring Market....."Yeah, I'm with Checker"

Spring Market was in Salt Lake City, Utah this year.  I haven't been to a Spring Market since my very first Market and it was in Salt Lake as well.  My thinking was spring must be smaller than Houston, let me make all my mistakes at a smaller market, before I drag my stuff to Texas and get spanked.

Kelly and I had a great time.  Market was crazy good for Rusty Crow.  We are Valdani's Newest Distributor.  We are going to service all the smaller shops and designers, who maybe don't need 12 balls of one color.  We are happy to split boxes and give your 12 colors a box if thats all you need.

We also go picked up by Checker, a major distributor in the Quilt world.  I have been trying to get them to pick me up for the last 7 years.  This time it wasn't even a blimp on my radar, a girl can only take so much rejection.  So the second day of Market, about 5 minutes before Kelly and I are about to wrap it up the the day, a Checker buyer shows up and says, "We would like to carry your stuff."

I was a bit stunned.  I'm sure she thought she had walked onto the islands of the Muted Quilter.  I just looked at her and mumbled, "Sure."  Then put my head down and bursted into tears.  After trying so many years, and then have the Magical Unicorn walk into your booth and utter those transforming words was a shock, a awesome shock, but still a huge surprise.

So today, I'm pulling all the info together that they need to carry my stuff.  Yeah, let me pull up my big girl panties.  Holy Crap, I'm with Checker.  You don't know how long, I've been wanting to say those Words.  I'm with Checker, I'm with Checker, I'm with Checker

And so grateful, as well.
Thank the Quilting Gods.

  7. My husband and I have been married for 3 and a half years. In June it will be 7 years that we have been a part of each other lives. Recently he found out about a guy I slept with when we were separated and I did not tell him about. Before we got married we both agreed to let everything out and start fresh. I didn’t tell him. I was embarrassed bc the guy and I never actually had sex…just everything that led up to it. not to mention it was my brothers best friend and a huge mistake. well it came out recently along with some lies. A friend told my husband I cheated on him and I have never cheated on my husband nor would I ever. He is convinced I am a cheater. we have 2 beautiful kids and all I have ever wanted is a happy family. my kids and my husband truly are my everything. I can not see a future where my husband is not in it. I want to do whatever I can to save my marriage but I feel my husband is already set on the divorce. I know I could have been a better wife to him….a wife he deserves but now I fee like I have realized it too late. I look at my kids and I hate myself for allowing myself to break my family apart. I know my husband is not perfect and he has hurt me tremendously these past 5 years we have been off and on but we made it through for a reason. I love him and I want to save my marriage, one day a friend of my introduce me to a spell caster online who lift me up gave me hope and with-in 2 days after his spell my husband who told me he needed a divorce, called me and take me back home to me i must say today we are happily as one big family again all thanks to Dr joy a father and a real spell caster.Contact email address Call him +2347059014517
