We are still kicking in Hampton, VA
Somehow a couple weeks just sailed right on past us without a chance to write. The weather threw off our dyeing schedule just a wee bit. The product couldn't get delivered and then when it did most were missing items! Oh well....means they will have to be dyed here in March! We've been having so much fun with the new items.....Rayon Seam Binding, Sari Silk Ribbon, Sparkly Burlap, and more. They've been well received here at the Mid-Atlantic Quilt Festival so that makes us very happy!
We have more sparkly burlap headed in so we'll be working on those numbers for those that missed it.
Here's some of the photos from our road trip.
We have a new booth size so that we can spread out some. I think it is working great for us.
It certainly has allowed the modern quilt area to shine. The Visions of Purple quilt kit is sold out. Hopefully we will have replacements on that by Raleigh. I'll do my best in the dye studio.
We introduced a few new colors in Bindles. That book you see in the back is fabulous!!! We can't keep it in stock. It is out yet again. Too quick a turn around to get any more for Mt Dora but we will have some again in Raleigh, NC.
We LOVE seeing what people do with our items! This show has been amazing for it. We got to see a group challenge where they used a lot of our items. Gotta admit.....dyed batting stitched right in as if it were a regular fabric makes quite a statement in a mini quilt and carrier rods heavily embroidered before being put on the quilt are gorgeous! There has also been a group with a paint chip challenge shopping in our booth. Hopefully next year we will see the results of that challenge too.
All of a sudden I looked up from the register and spied this bag!!!! It was made by Angie Fowler using 2 of our Thermofax Screens! Isn't it just amazing. The tree print actually was created by a photo taken in Hampton, VA our first year so quite fitting that she bought the screen then carried the bag at this show!
