Booth 1022 turned out beautifully, displaying the traditional looks we’re best known for, along with the contemporary style of Studio 37 Fabrics! Below it, the Somerset Patchwork booth (1023), shows Karen Styles’ unique look and Australian design sense.
In our first Schoolhouse session, Sarah Maxwell of Designs by Sarah J shared ways for quilt shop owners to update their offerings, while attendees got a closeup look at her new “Hashtag” quilt design, done up in her new REVVED UP RETRO collection for Studio 37 Fabrics.
Whether you’re one of Pam’s longtime followers, or you’re new to the look, check out the collection online now…of course, if you’re in Houston, just go to Booth 1022! And in case you missed it, you can learn more about Pam in the current issue of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine…
Yes, that’s Holiday 2016 .. our Sneak Peek showcase at QM features the debut collection by Rachel Pellman, aka Rachel’s of Greenfield. This is just a small hint of the line’s versatility – it’s a one-stop shop for creative holiday quilts, decor, crafts and gift-giving. Check out her pre-printed panel, Strip-It design and cut-outs for appliques, ornaments, tags and more at Booth 1022, and watch for the collection online in January.
Booth 1022 is well on its way, and she’s right, it will be gorgeous! I love our new pallet displays – the perfect combination of style, practicality and creative upcycling. Is it giving you ideas, too?
And can’t you just imagine Victoria Findlay Wolfe’s striking MOSTLY MANOR quilt in your own Manor? Last but not least, Indra takes a break from the #MarcusMarketMania, a well-deserved break, I’m sure…Drink your water, Indra!! Looking forward to the end results ; )
