Where I’ll Be at Quiltcon

I’m signing out for the week and going to Quiltcon! I’m moderating the panel discussion “All About Fabric Design” on Saturday, Feb. 23, 2:00-2:50. I hope to see you there. Please leave a comment with any questions you’d like me to bring up! Check out this ragtag bunch I have to attempt to keep under control, and wish me luck:

Moderated by Kim Kight with panelists Amy Butler of Amy Butler Design; Evie Ashworth, Design Director of Retail at Robert Kaufman; Kathy Miller, Design Director of Michael Miller Fabrics; and Laurie Wisbrun, a Robert Kaufman designer.

Ever wonder how designers get ideas? What do companies consider when selecting lines to manufacture? All that and more will be covered in this fascinating panel discussion on fabric design and its influence on modern quilting.

At 4:00 on Saturday, I’ll be in the C&T booth signing my book A Field Guide to Fabric Design. C&T will have copies there for sale, or you can bring your own copy! I will also be bringing copies to sell before and after the signing, so if you run into me, I can hook you up!

    What a lineup! So wish you’d make a video so I could learn all about it. Have fun!!

  2. Kim says:

    Nicky, there will probably be a video of it on Craftsy! As long as everyone on the panel signed the release, it’ll be a go.

    Can’t wait for your panel! I made little bookplates and would love to have you sign one so I can put it in my copy of your book back home. See you soon!!

  4. Nicky Ovitt says:

    yay! that’s great news, thx. I’ll subscribe to Craftsy!

    I would love to have been there! Such a neat subject in any venue, but at QuiltCon with some of my favorites! Lucky you! I’d love to have your book, I’ll look for it to purchase. I often wonder if companies want the designers to choose colors that go with each other’s lines. I see that sometimes especially Free Spirit. It really expands the fabrics possibilities!

    Hi Kim,
    I met you yesterday at Quilt Con and got my book signed. I know you are busy with the festival fun at present, but when you get a moment, I am having trouble registering on your site. It actually said my email address was SPAM! Yikes! I am using my other email address here, just in case. Help!
