We're back from Pacific International Quilt Festival, we're mostly repacked, reshipped, reorganized and are madly finishing up details for our trip tomorrow to the Houston Fall Quilt Market. Usually we have a bit more time in between these two huge shows- one retail and one wholesale- but not this year. This year the powers that be decided to put them right on top of one another, making our lives.... well to be polite, interesting.
Let's just say it's a good thing that Halloween is a good 4 days after I return from Houston or my munchkins would be trick or treating naked... well perhaps that is a bit dramatic but they would certainly not be trick or treating in anything new or interesting!
I won't have a chance to do any real sneak peaks until after I return but I thought i might share a partial peak by showing you a few small shots of our booth at Pacific International. Several of our patterns didn't get finished in time for that show but you will notice at least a few new ones that did.....
The show was fantastic for us and there was a great response to our newest additions. No sign of a depressed economy here. Thank you to all of you who stopped by to say hi. We are so blessed by all of our wonderful and loyal customers!
I have some more beautiful show quilts to share and a few snap shots of a few other of my favorite booths. So hopefully I will feel the need to stop sewing for a few minutes late tonite and post again...
I don't know how many of you have already heard about the "fabricmatcher" program that MODA has on their website. It is open to everyone and is a fantastic way to play with many of their newest collections.
This month they are having a contest using our Fig Tree fabrics. If you use any of our collections that they have loaded into the program and create a quilt using any of the patterns that they have available, you are eligible to win the contest! I will be helping with the judging... and you all know what I like so it should be a snap!
So for all of you out there who love to play with fabric.... this is a great opportunity to do just that and win fabric and patterns to boot!
Just go to fabricmatcher hereand it will tell you what to do to start. It is really simple and I guarantee you will get addicted once you start!
I can't wait to see what you all come up with! Let the games begin.
Welcome to the online journal of Joanna Figueroa, textile designer, author & owner of Fig Tree & Co, a quilt & sewing pattern company. Let's talk about fabric, design, color, family, life, pickles and bowls... not necessarily in that order!
If you sign up here above, every time we write a new post, it will be sent to you via email. How great is that!
