It is that time of year again when the quilt industry gets worked into a frenzy of excitement and last minute sewing. Spring International Quilt Market starts tomorrow in Pittsburgh! All of your favorite designers are setting up their booths to debut new lines of fabric as I type this post. I am taking a deep breath before I step into a sensory overload of all things fabric and other needful things!
I am very excited to see a few familiar faces make their official Market debut!
– American Made Brand, a new division of Clothworks, is introducing a line of 50 cotton solids made from 100% US grown cotton. It is so exciting to see premium cottons coming from our own home soil.
– April Rhodes will be showing her new fabric line, Arizona, for Art Gallery Fabric. Her Staple Dress pattern was my gateway to garment sewing! We know have yet another reason to whip out that pattern!
– Thomas Knauer will be sharing his new book, Modern Quilt Perspectives.
– Cotton+Steel is getting ready to set the world on fire! The folks at RJR decided to join forces to create a new company of designers that include Melody Miller, Rashida Coleman-Hale, Alexia Abegg, Kim Kight, and Sarah Watts!
What are you excited to see?!
