Here at Marcus, we’re welcoming Spring 2022 in a big way, with a brand-new release of gorgeous designer collections! Check these out in detail, including the full collections and project options where available:
As we conclude another exciting Monday with Marcus designer series, “The Colors of Marcus”, we wanted to give you an overall view of the free projects. Links to all of them remain available on the MWN page on the Marcus website, and we invite you to visit and follow each designer’s own sites and social media to learn more about them! View SLIDESHOW below
It all began on February 14, when we launched the series with the color RED. All of the participating designers created projects in red for Valentine’s Day and beyond…You’ll find the links for these on the MWM page, too!
Finally, watch for details on our Series 3 giveaway! We’re putting together a fabulous Deluxe Gift Basket of colorful Marcus fabrics and goodies, so stay tuned for the announcement and entry details. Happy Stitching!
If you attended the Warwick Valley Quilt Guild’s show this past weekend, hopefully, you caught Victoria’s presentation, along with some Retail Therapy from Victoria (and lots of other great vendors!) The bi-annual guild show takes place in Warwick, NY. Pati (shown in the right side photo with Victoria’s assistants, Laurie and Kim) was also in attendance, and she sent along a few pix of the exciting event. Goodies at Victoria’s booth included MEADOW STORM and MOSTLY MANOR bundles and of course, inspiring quilts…
Her debut collection, A DAY IN SPAIN, hits your favorite quilt shops in January, and you’ll be able to read more about Casey, and view the entire collection (with great quilt concepts!) in August. But we couldn’t wait another day to give you a glimpse into this talented designer’s contemporary take on historical motifs, based on her travels in the south of Spain. We know you’ll be as excited as we are… Welcome, Casey!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
The famous Christmas tree at “30 Rock” is all aglow, and we enjoyed the air of merriment…with the sea of selfie sticks jockeying for the best position, and unseasonably high NYC temps in the 60s ; )
ICYMI (in case you missed it) we snapped a few pix…Laura and I agreed that we always expect the tree to be really gigantic — maybe it actually used to be bigger and we’re just dating ourselves — but I was still impressed with how the lights were positioned throughout, even inserted deep into the tree, all the way in toward the trunk.

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!
Are YOU planning to attend? Stay tuned for more details…

Wow! The December 2015 issue of American Quilting & Patchwork magazine (APQ) has a real treat for all of us Pam Buda fans – it’s a multi-page profile of our favorite prairie-inspired quilt designer, photographed inside her beautiful Illinois home!
Naturally, many of the designs shown are patterns available thru Heartspun Quilts, and they feature her fabric collections including TREENWARE & BERRIES and AMERICAN GOTHIC.
Below you’ll see Pam on the left, and design director Nancy Wiles and photographer Greg Scheidemann styling a shot in her living room. It’s great when a designer’s home and furnishings are a true reflection of her work ; )
Visit your newsstand or quilt shop now, or order online (subscribers, watch your mailboxes) to read more about Pam, her quilts, fabric and inspiration in the magazine!
