The United Notions booth at Market featured just a few of the items from Moda Home line, a line of pre-made home items – mostly ones for the upcoming holidays.

Patterned Velvets and Chenilles at High Fashion Home

High Fashion Home has these patterned poly-blend velvets and chenilles for people who are really serious about their retro.

The Michael Miller Studios collections are still organized by theme — the color stories provide another way to group prints (and their new Cotton Couture solids) together [...]
