Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Penguin & Fish

I met Alyssa of Penguin & Fish at the Spring Quilt Market, where she exhibited for the first time, and was thrilled to see that she made the haul down from Minneapolis to have a booth this time around too. Hmmm, why was the booth so close to Clothworks this time? Why, it’s because Alyssa [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Clothworks

Here’s what’s new from Clothworks. Designer Erin Ries caught my eye last market with the collection Milly. Her follow-up is called Paige, and it’s out this winter. Next up, Night and Day, a very contemporary turn by the usually traditional-leaning Skipping Stones Studio. And here’s the next group of Toy Poodle prints from the Japanese [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Windham – Bari J.

The illustrious Bari J. had her first booth at market to show off her latest fabric collection Country Lane and her scores of sewing patterns (including four new ones), and to preview her beautiful-looking book that comes out in early 2011.

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Windham – Paige Stanley Miller

I only got to pop my head in briefly at Windham this time, but I just had to go to see Paige Stanley Miller‘s Bon Vivant after seeing her sporting the cape above the day before (why no picture, why, WHY!?). Parisian and French themes were an unexpected trend this market, and Mademoiselle Paige’s interpretation [...]

Art Gallery Fabrics‘ booth display was dedicated to showing the inspiration behind designer Pat Bravo’s three most recent three collections, and inspiration for sewing with it.

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – Seven Islands – Cocca

I didn’t find out what was up with the similar names, but the Seven Islands (the U.S. distributors of Kokka and other Japanese textile brands) booth was also showing a high-end, multi-purpose (but home-dec leaning) collection called Cocca, from a Tokyo-based shop/brand of the same name. The pictures don’t really capture the prints’ scale or [...]
