The Houston Quilt Show starts next weekend, and kicking off the massive event is an opportunity for bloggers to meet and network with some of the biggest names in the fabric and quilting industry. Caroline Devoy of J. Caroline Creative and Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics organized the first Fabric 2.0 gathering for Portland’s Spring Quilt Show in an effort to bring together bloggers and fabric designers to share ideas and network. The event was such a success that they decided to do it again, and this time are adding even more big names to their host roster. Attendees can connect with other fabric and craft bloggers, and hear from folks like Project Runway winner, Jay McCarrol, who has a new fabric line coming out for Westminster. Also scheduled to participate are representatives from Moda Fabric, Etsy, Better Homes and Gardens, Robert Kaufman, Home Companion and Country Living.
