So, who’s joining us at QuiltCon in sunny (hopefully!) Savannah, GA next week? We’re proud to return again as sponsors, and we can’t wait to share all that’s new with you from Studio 37 Fabrics!! For now, here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll find at BOOTH 549!
#MarcusMugshot Mugrug Challenge: As if ten free mugrug projects from your favorite Marcus makers wasn’t enough, you can also visit us in Booth 549 to select a few FREE SWATCHES to get your entry started! Have your #MarcusMugshot taken right in the booth, and share it on social media. (Here’s Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s free design, just one of the 10 available online…)
And speaking of Victoria, have you heard about her QuiltCon Booth Hop?? Simply visit all of the QuiltCon booths Victoria is associated with, including her own Booth #338, have your card stamped in each booth, and you could win a $500 prize pack from Victoria herself!! Of course, we suggest you begin your Hop at the Marcus booth…
FREEMarcus WOOL Mini-Make-n-Take: Visit our sewing station to stitch up a cute little multi-layered bright wool embellishment. Inspired by penny rugs, these single “Wool Pennies” can jazz up a quilt, bag, or add a pin back for easy fabric jewelry. Thanks to our friends at Aurifil for supplying their cotton floss, and to Sizzix for their die cutting machine.
On Thursday and Sunday, Sarah J Maxwell will share her favorite paper piecing tips and techniques as she stitches up blocks using her new DANDY DAYScollection and supplies from Paper Pieces!
Looking forward to a fun and creative weekend — See you there!!
Congratulations to our own Nancy Rink, whose new thread pack was just introduced by Aurifil this week! Check out this interview with Nancy on their blog. Nancy’s GTKH BOM, like so many of her Marcus BOM quilts, is all about color, so her new coordinating thread pack is a natural complement, as you can see…
The fabrics and threads are available in your local quilt shops and online sources. Even better, Aurifil is featuring a GIVEAWAY on the blog – enter before Saturday Feb 11 for your chance to win!
We’re thrilled to share the news of Aurifil’s latest designer thread collections, especially those by our own Marcus Makers, Sarah J Maxwell and Victoria Findlay Wolfe! So now, you can use the same great Aurifil quality the top designers use, expertly curated for foolproof results ; )
Look for the fabrics, the threads, quilt patterns and more at your favorite local quilt shops and online resources, including Designs by Sarah J and VFW Quilts. ! And if you’re in NYC, visit Victoria’s retail shop, too…you might even catch her there ; ) Keep up the great work, ladies!!
Guess what: Our own very talented Nancy Rink of Nancy Rink Designs is one of several quilt artists named to AURIFIL Thread’s 2015 Design Team! Judging from the size of those spools, it looks like they’re all in for a really fun and eventful year. You know Nancy from her colorful fabric collections and gorgeous BOMs and other quilt designs including AMISH WITH A TWIST, COLOR LOVE, MILL WORKS and POINTE PLEASANT, among others. (That’s her in the solid black shirt, lower left end.) We’re thrilled that Nancy will bring Marcus fabrics and Aurifil together in her gorgeous creations for the coming year, and beyond…
Congratulations to Nancy and all of the Aurifil designers!
As if the excitement from yesterday’s blog post wasn’t enough, several samples of Aurifil Cotton Mako 28wt thread arrived at the office, in colors selected by the Quilted Crow Girls specifically for THE SEASONS WOOL COLLECTION. Gorgeous, lustrous threads — I had to show them off! Their picks include: 2887 (lighter green) and 5012 (darker green) 2630 (charcoal), 2468 (burgundy-brown), 2460 (pomegranate), 1310 (slate blue), 2975 (a gorgeous gold!) and 2445 (a rose pink). We can see why the Girls prefer this thread for their wool-on-cotton applique projects. Thanks to Aurifil for the samples!
