It’s coming in just a few days! We had sooo much great stuff to share (in the midst of last-minute Quilt Market prep), that we’re just taking a few extra days to complete it. We’re relaunching our Studio 37 website, with contemporary looks from Victoria Findlay Wolfe, Nancy Rink, Sarah Maxwell, Susan Cousineau, Irene Chan and Laura Berringer for starters! And on the Marcus side, we’ve got new looks from Pam Buda, flannel sewing tips, and a preview from Rachel Pellman, the newest addition to our design team. It’ll all be unveiled in just a few days, but for now, enjoy this little sneak peek…
Spring 2015 marks the debut of TWO collections from designer Susan Cousineau. You might recognize her name as a top designer of kids’ and craft patterns for Kwik Sew and McCalls’.
With the launch of her Lollipop Rainbow fabric collections for Marcus, Susan is “over the rainbow” with excitement as she takes her creative passion for kids’ design into a new and exciting chapter.
Now, crafters and quilters can create a well-rounded look in home décor, quilts, clothing and accessories, beginning with MAGICAL MERMAID and POLKA DOT POND. Susan’s stylized mermaid fairies and pond pals themes include prints that work beautifully by themselves, or with the coordinated pre-printed panels. See the entire collections online (they’ll be in quilt shops this October!), and learn more about Susan.
