Girl Charlee Fabrics Knitty News :: BOLT by Girl Charlee Spring Quilt Market Recap

BOLT by Girl Charlee has returned from Spring International Quilt Market in Salt Lake City!  With the release of our newest BOLT Collection Modern Reflection, BOLT by Girl Charlee was a hit with shop owners and designers alike.  Below are the highlights of our Quilt Market trip in Salt Lake City. Enjoy!

On Wednesday evening BOLT by Girl Charlee was a Premier Sponsor of The Fabric Shop Network’s Spring Quilt Market Dinner, where Girl Charlee founder Heather Peterson is shown wearing her Pure Vintage Penn Dutch Dress while setting up the BOLT table outside of the dinner.  Heather and Marketing Manager Nicole handed out bags to all attendees and had a great time showing off our amazing knit fabrics to so many store owners before dinner.   
After a long day of setting up the booth on Thursday, it was time for Sample Spree! This is Quilt Market attendees one opportunity to shop samples of fabrics and notions at wholesale, discounted prices. The BOLT by Girl Charlee table had fabric bundles available from all four of our collections, and our newest Modern Reflection Collection was first to sell out.
Friday morning and let Quilt Market begin!  Heather wears her new Modern Reflection Fox Dress in the booth and the team is ready to meet and talk with shop owners, bloggers, designers and many more amazing people.
Everyone loved the booth design.  From a garment rack full of beautiful clothes to touch and admire in the mirror, to stuffed animals from Lucy Blaire, signage and displays for each of the four BOLT collections, there was a lot for everyone to see. A big thank you to the Girl Charlee Team for putting so much hard work into the design and execution of the booth.
As always, it is so fun to see and meet many people that we "meet" in the virtual world through blogs and Social Media at Quilt Market.  Pictured (from left to right) is Vanessa of Crafty Gemini, Erin of Sewbon, and Melissa of Create Kids Couture. Thank you ladies for stopping by to visit with us!

The most exciting part of the Quilt Market show was the official launch of BOLT by Girl Charlee with our amazing distributors EE Schenck!  If you are currently purchasing from EE Schenck you can now also stock the entire BOLT by Girl Charlee knits collections.  Just ask your rep or visit their website here.  The EE Schenck team stopped by for a group photo opp with Heather, and both companies are very excited as this new partnership.

A big thank you to all the hard working Quilt Market organizers and volunteers for making this event happen. We are beyond thrilled to have met so many wonderful people and we look forward to seeing more and more BOLT fabrics in global retailers soon.
