Fall Quilt Market 2011: Lecien – St. Ives by Sarah Fielke

Sarah Fielke was Quilt Market to promote her new book, Quilting From Little Things, and new fabric collection with Lecien, St. Ives, which is inspired by the spirit of growing up in the late 70s-early 80s. The idea behind the book is to learn new quilting techniques in a low-commitment (and quilting-class-friendly) way with doll-sized quilts, then move [...]

Free iPod App from Robert Kaufman

OK, wow, since I last checked, the iTunes store has exploded with apps related to the word “fabric.” I’ll just have to take a look at some of them (except for the virtual ironing app — no thanks!) and let you know if they’re worth their while, but in the meanwhile, I wholeheartedly recommend The [...]

Blog Tour: Quilt Remix by Emily Cier

You’ve got your Deadheads, your Phishheads … what do you call people who follow blog tours? I guess in this case I’ll call them Cierheads, because CarolinaPatchworksheads (for Emily Cier’s popular quilt pattern company) is too cumbersome. Remixheads (for her brand new book Quilt Remix) might also work, what do you think? Anyway, it’s the [...]

Fall Quilt Market 2010 – FreeSpirit – Tula Pink

Can I just say? Meeting Tula Pink for the first time had to be one of the highlights of this market for me. She is hilarious and awesome and her tales of living in the rural Midwest had me rolling on the floor at the Fabric 2.0 party. And of course her booth to promote [...]
