We did a little experiment, and found that we could put 25 YARDS of fabric in the large size of Nesting Baskets. What a perfect way for displaying your fabric. The small size is just perfect for keeping Wonder Clips next to your sewing machine.

We're mixing it up today with a fun recipe for gifting. This recipe for Hot Fudge Sauce is part of Annie's cookbook From Halibut to Jalapenos.
This recipe takes about 30 minutes to make and is perfect for coworkers, neighbors, and friendship groups.
It can be packaged beautifully and would be so nice with brownies or ice cream.
Dana, part of the ByAnnie.com Team, put together this hot fudge sauce and said it was easy and quick. She didn't include the rum at the end, and it tastes fine without it. Depending on your taste for rum, you may or may not want to include that. She also said when she added the boiling water to the mix, it mixed up beautifully at first, then started to separate. She started to panic, but kept making it. By the end of the process it worked just fine and came together in a delicious sauce.
Want to make it your own? Another fun idea would be channeling your inner chef and mixing up the chocolate.
So what are you waiting for? Start making a quick, easy, DELICIOUS, gift today.

We had such a great time at Quilt Market and Quilt Festival meeting with so many new and old friends!
This show we had our biggest space ever - FOUR BOOTHS! It seemed huge when we first thought about it, but we were quickly able to fill the tables, racks, and walls with our samples, notions, and products for making beautiful things. It was so fun being across from Superior Threads as always.
The following are some quick photos that Kati took while wandering the aisles.
Exited about a new fabric line being released for Cotton and Steel by Rifle Paper Co. The display was so simple and striking.
Loved the dresses and pom poms displayed here.
Gloria and Kati ooh'd and ahh'd over the nurseries put together by Shannon Fabrics. The little elephants are so precious. Everything is so soft, too! Some days we wanted to curl up and take a nap in their booth.
Loved the theme of this booth by Taylor Made Designs!
We loved seeing Sherri and Chelsi for the debut of their new fabric Valley. They are such sweet friends and Annie had to snap a photo with them. Sherri is holding Get Out of Town and Chelsi is holding Open Wide.
Here is Vanessa of Lella's Boutique modeling her cute Got Your Back in her new Little Miss fabric. Do you spy the Back at Ya and Potluck Pals in the background?
We spied this Bling It On in Kate Spain fabric over in United Notion's booth.
We had a few hiccups with construction going on at the entrance of the convention center and Hurricane Patricia deciding to make an appearance. One day it took us an extra 45 minutes to get to the convention center because we had to navigate through back roads to find our way through the flooding. We had never seen so much rain in one place! We are glad it didn't slow everyone down though and we are looking forward to next year!
