@jpearl05 Showed Us Her #MarcusMugshot and Won!

Our next lucky Marcus Mugrug Challenge winner is @jpearl05, also known as Pearl. Her clever juxtaposition of traditional prints with solids in a modern, wonky setting makes it just right for almost any home setting.  Nice job, Pearl!


MugPrize29marWe’re two-thirds of the way thru the Challenge, so be sure to enter now through April 30 for your chance at a fun mug-and-fabric combo, maybe like this one.

Simply make your mugrug, up to 9″ x9″ in size, and using at least one Marcus of Studuio 37 fabric print.  Design your own like Pearl did, or recreate one of our free designer mugrug projects. Then, post it to Instagram with #MarcusMugshot (or email your entry to us).  Warning: These mugrugs are a bit addictive, but luckily, you can enter as often as you like, with a separate post or email for each entry.  Good Luck!

Laura’s New Sewing Space

Laura's New Sewing SpaceAs a fitting finale to our recent “Summer Highlights” blog post, we’re peeking at Laura’s new sewing space, courtesy of her college-bound daughter  ; )

“One of my favorite summer moments (albeit, a bittersweet one) was taking my youngest daughter to college – she was so excited and happy.  But coming back to her empty room was not easy…..until a few days later, when I set up my little Singer sewing machine on her desk!      I wonder what I’ll make…”

Laura, our talented design director, is also a new quilter. My guess is that she’ll be whipping up more new quilts and accessories from her upcoming Studio 37 collections. There was also talk of a skirt in one of her HIGH CONTRAST prints. If you missed it, Laura will be donating her GIRLY-O-SAURUS baby quilt to Project Linus.  Follow her on Instagram @laurasewmodern for her next creation…and future fabric giveaways!
