Jonathan Adler for Kravet

  We have a Jonathan Adler store in Austin and it’s got to be one of the happiest places on earth. Except for sad old me bringing things down because I can’t afford anything. I drive past the window every morning and the “Your 24-Hour Pot Dealer” slogan under the URL always makes the subconscious [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2013: Robert Kaufman – Basics

Robert Kaufman is famous for their basics, and basics seem to be more popular and appreciated these days (maybe as the “new generation” of sewists becomes more savvy?), so now when I gush about solids and basics, people won’t think I’m being ironic! RK just rolled out new Kona solids last year, and this year [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2012: Amy and David Butler

Amy Butler‘s Alchemy collection is very complex! At 46 pieces you could be forgiven to not keep them all straight, but they’re divided up further into a lot of different substrates.   The Studio Collection contains 12 different prints in different fabrics, including rayon challis, sateen bliss, voile, velveteen, laminates, and linen rayon, aimed at [...]

Tamurakoma & Co.

Tamurakoma & Co. is more than 100 years old but this was their first time at quilt market.
