Quilt Market Fall 2008: Buying Bolts With Diane of Bee Square Fabrics

In case you didn’t know, the main purpose of the International Quilt Market is for fabric and quilt supply retailers to see, touch, test-drive, and order products from manufacturers. Diane of Bee Square Fabrics and her husband Michael were nice enough to let me tag along as Diane ordered fabrics from Moda. Some fabric companies [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Kaffe Fassett

Kaffe Fassett and the wonderful Liza Prior Lucy, the woman responsible for bringing Kaffe’s work to the quilting world, were at Market too. As you know, I’m a huge fan of Kaffe’s fabric (and the Rowan designers in general) Liza is a fan of True Up (!) so I was very excited to meet them [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Robert Kaufman

I sat down with the marketing department of Robert Kaufman Fabrics, Kyle Sanchez, Emmie Goldenbaum, and Allie Heath. Since RK provides fabric for both the quilting and manufacturing markets, they have a huge selection and are particularly strong in solids and basics, including their much-loved Kona Cotton Solids. They also produce collections by designers Amy [...]

It was close to closing time on the first day of Quilt Market, so we were all in a bit of a visually overstimulated daze at that point, but Kathy Miller of Michael Miller Fabrics was nice enough to sit down with Michelle and I for over an hour talking about their new fabrics (their [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Camelot Cottons

I made a beeline for the Camelot Cottons booth because I saw they had a line of Mr Men and Little Miss licensed fabric. Turns out that the artwork is still being finalized so I don’t have anything to show you, but Camelot has a lot of other interesting things happening — they’re definitely a [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Art Gallery Fabrics

Today I’ll be featuring two fabric companies I found at Quilt Market that were totally new to me. The first is Art Gallery Fabrics. Art Gallery Fabrics is owned by designer Patricia Bravo and her husband Walter. Patricia told me the story of moving to the U.S. from her native Argentina. She sewed for a [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Alexander Henry

Before Market I knew that I liked Alexander Henry, but I didn’t know much else about them. They have never had that big of a web presence, nor do they work with big-name designers, so it’s been hard to keep track of everything. Now, after visiting their booth and meeting owners Nicole and Phillip de [...]

Quilt Market Fall 2008: Japanese Fabric: Lecien

I didn’t get to talk to anyone at Lecien — they were busy with buyers every time I came by so I didn’t want to interrupt. So this is the only picture I managed! I entertained the thought of snatching this FQ pack up and running away screaming maniacally, tossing away any future I might [...]
