The Textile Center Minneapolis

As you might remember I was invited to speak at the Textile Center in Minneapolis during Spring Quilt Market. I yammered on for two hours (!) about blogging professionally and fabric trends, but punctuated the show with lots of giveaways. Becka Rahn, the center’s Education Manager and “WebWeaver” posted a recap of the talk here, [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: The Society Page

It took forever, but that about does it for fabric previews from Spring Quilt Market 2010. Phew! But Quilt Market is all about hanging out with friends, putting names to faces, and making devious plans. Once again I suffered from fabric tunnel vision when it came to taking pictures, but here are some of my [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Andover

I started this Quilt Market out at Lizzy House’s rocking, standing-room-only schoolhouse presentation, and ended it at the Andover booth for some quickie shots of their upcoming collections from our favorite designers. Lizzie is an AMAZING public speaker, people! She shared the results of this survey and had people laughing and sometimes even gasping at [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: More Moda

I missed seeing several collections from Moda firsthand at Market, but I did take home their catalog, and just had to show you some more of their Fall 2010 collections … I am just crazy about Urban Chiks‘ Dream On, and I think you will be too. It’s inspired by vintage sheets, which have a [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Thread

I was thrilled to meet with Nancy Jewell of Coats & Clark and Westminster/Rowan this Quilt Market. She took me on a whirlwind tour of What’s New in Thread … the biggest news being that Rowan is introducing premium-quality, long staple Egyptian cotton thread sets and individual spools that coordinate with Amy Butler’s and Kaffe [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Robert Kaufman

Have you met Emmie, Allie, and Kyle? I love these ladies. They’re Robert Kaufman‘s marketing department and I feel like we’ve become good pals. It’s funny because the three quilt markets I’ve been to, the RK booth has always had the same configuration and these ladies have always been sitting in the same spots relative [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Kaffe Fassett / Liberty Art Fabrics + Book Giveaway

Kaffe Fassett and Liza Prior Lucy were missing from Quilt Market this time, and it wasn’t the same without them! But there was new Kaffe fabric, of course. Marleybone (above) is the second installment in the Liberty Art Fabrics collection — these are prints chosen from the Liberty archives and colored by Kaffe. Learn more [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Freespirit Part II – Coming Soon

Not sure when these collections are coming out — throughout the summer and maybe a little into fall, I’d guess … Logan is Vicki Payne‘s followup to For Your Home, her debut collection eponymously named for her PBS show. Logan is a group of classic, simple, bold home dec-weight prints in a lovely, springy palette. [...]

Spring Quilt Market 2010: Amy Butler

Amy Butler and her booth was gorgeous as always. Her Fall 2010 fabric collection Soul Blossoms is still only on paper, but that didn’t stop her from whipping up quite a display. And there is some other news … Yarn! Organic yarn! It’s called Belle and it’s from Rowan. There are two weights, Aran and [...]
