Fall Quilt Market 2009: Heather Bailey

You’re mostly up to speed on Heather Bailey from the Schoohouse Post, but here is some more detail for you from her award-winning booth. #1. Check out the pillow! Digital printing! Here’s the full story that inspired the prints, straight from the brochure: “Small-town girl, Nicey Jane, heads to the city on Friday nights to [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Kaffe Fassett Collective (And Giveaway)

I had to laugh when I approached the Kaffe Fassett Collective booth this year: It was as if Liza Prior Lucy and Kaffe Fassett had stayed put right where I left them last year. Except that they had yet another amazing new quilt book, Quilt Romance, and a pile of captivating new prints to add [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Hokkoh

This was Japanese fabric manufacturer Hokkoh‘s first Quilt Market (or at least, their first Fall market), and their presence confirmed to me that the popularity of Japanese fabric in the United States is increasing. Hokkoh produces higher-end apparel fabrics — mostly cotton lawn, double gauze, and linen-cotton blends. At market they had about a quarter [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010: della Q

You may remember della Q from our interview earlier this year and Silk Series post on working with silk taffeta. Unfortunately I didn’t get to meet Della in person, as she was in London, but I got to meet her lovely assistant, but failed to write down her name! So sorry! I got to visit [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Yuwa/Kei Fabrics

Kei Honeycomb Dots – new colors As part of this week’s Quilt Market coverage I’ll be showing one Japanese fabric company each day. Let’s start with Yuwa and Kei. I’m not sure if Kei is a brand belonging to Yuwa (or vice versa), or if they are two companies with the same distributor, but their [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Windham

On Sunday I got to eat dinner with a wonderfully assorted crew: Kathy Mack of Pink Chalk Fabrics and her mom, quilt artists Susan Brubaker Knapp and Sarah Vedeler, and Windham designers Jessica Levitt and Paige Stanley Miller. (I was exhausted by this time and embarrassingly started crying uncontrollably when I tried to tell Kathy’s [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Vintage Shopping (and Denyse Schmidt)!

While we’re on the subject of vintage today, here are shots from vintage textile dealer A.T. Roches out of Canton, Texas (east of Dallas). Note the insane array of vintage hankies, cocktail napkins, and gift wrap along with the fabric. I did some damage here and at Mary Koval Antique Quilts (but we’ve got an [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2009: Moda Home

Well, this year I failed to see the upcoming fabric collections from Moda (their booth complex is a mini city and everyone is constantly busy!) but I did get to take pictures of the Moda Home products, shown here, and the quilts and a couple of the designers’ booths, which I’ll save for a later [...]
