Once again we were off to Houston last week in October with our new fabric collection,
Costume Makers Ball
presented at Fall Quilt Market by
Riley Blake Designs.
Just in case you didn’t catch this on IG or FB I decided to share a few photos and info.
The collection is for Halloween, twenty-nineteen and delivers to shops in April.
These fabrics are available to the trade (shops) now so please, check with you local shops to make sure they’ll have in the Spring.
It’s a very fun group to work with and I’m thinking you will agree!
As you can see above, we’ve created some great projects for this line and they’ll become available with the fabric release.
You may also notice that we’ve dressed our Makers Guide She Who Sews girls up too and will be offering these Halloween appliqué add on’s as downloadables.
Oh yes, and we won a prize!
One to Riley Blake Designs for Best Multiple Booth award.
And we received the Most Creative Booth award.
And for a little extra touch, our live action model dressed as the main panel was in the booth on Saturday. A photo with her offered visitors a chance at some Paperdoll fat quarter bundles in a daily giveaway throughout the show.
To top it off, we enjoyed special guest, Jenny Doan from Missouri Star Quilting! Yay
It was all, quite a Treat.
I cannot say enough about the creative talent that was displayed during our recent
Great Corset Challenge.
Simply amazing pieces!
Here are more of the beautiful corset entries that were not hash tagged to Instagram.
Take a look and enjoy!
Last but certainly not least, this one made using our Queen of We’en fabrics!
Love them all!!
THANK YOU again corseteers.
Please see them all (eventually) on,
A thanks to Aunt Henri on Pinterest
I am a big believer in keeping busy but so far, 2014 has kept me hopping a bit more than I like. Slowing down does not seam to be an option and I suppose, that’s OK with me, for now.
So, for our latest activities in a nutshell:
• We’re in and beginning to operate in the new work space. In fact, yesterday we started our first project there, making fabric games for Operation Christmas Child’s shoe box ministry. Many of us enjoy this charitable opportunity at Christmas and it seamed a fitting way to kick off workshops at our new Joy Studio. If you are local (Pacific, MO) and would like to join us, we’re opening the work space on Mondays in September to make these and more. All supplies included for this free workshop. Drop me a line for directions.
• We have a Holiday Fabric Special on our Halloween, Christmas and all items, in our Etsy Shop till Thanksgiving. For 25% OFF use Code: holiday2014 at the checkout.
• Plus, we have just added two more collections this week. A classic fairy tale group, Tidings & Tales and Dear Santa!
