Now, here’s a little tip for the rest of you…While we have no shortage of great fabric prizes, we only have a limited number of these very cool Marcus mugs available, sooooo, the sooner you enter the Challenge, the better your chances of winning a mug-and-fabric combo in our random weekly drawing (the fabrics will vary!) We’ll draw one lucky entry every Tuesday now thru April 30, and post the winners on Wednesdays. Be sure to use #MarcusMugshot when you enter. And Good Luck!
We’re thrilled to sponsor the all-new issue of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Vol. 14, especially since one of the the 100 quilt blocks features the REVVED UP RETRO line by Studio 37 Fabrics designer Sarah J Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J! View the LOOKBOOK for more about her colorful collection.

We’re thrilled to return to QuiltCon as a sponsor in February 2016, and right now, we’re putting a few finishing touches on some amazing Studio 37 Fabrics events and promotions! Presented by the Modern Quilt Guild, QuiltCon is the largest modern quilting show of its kind, and its popularity grows each year.
This time, it takes place in sunny Pasadena, CA, and highlights include two workshops and a lecture by sewlebrity designer Victoria Findlay Wolfe. You’re sure to find Victoria’s new collection, MOSTLY MANOR and your other favorite Studio 37 collections among the QuiltCon vendors, too!
