Breckyn, who may be Alexander Henry's biggest fan, met the designer of the mustache fabric, Philip de Leon, as well as an Alexander Henry TALL salesman who is really "in the groove" looking like an AHenry character!  LOL

We had a great time at QUILT MARKET last weekend and carried back lots of great ideas & product!

We saw NEW STUFF from favorite designers, like Terry Atkinson's GRAPHIC MIXX.

http://www.sewnatural.net/nli.asp?iid=31960

We got NEW IDEAS for EXISTING FABRIC like Terry's GRAPHIC MIXX pattern made with Marcia Derse's fabric that we already have in the store.

We also found HAPPY SCRAPPY WHOOO, a STUFFED OWL pattern, to use with FANCY CUDDLE fleece that we have in the store.  Isn't my new friend cute?!

http://www.sewnatural.net/nli.asp?iid=31961

I have great tips for working with CUDDLE!  #1 - keep a vacuum handy,  #2 - use weights to hold down patterns, #3 - use lots of pins when sewing.  And just do it!  The CUDDLE we carry is only stretchy in one direction, unlike other brands out there.  This makes it easier to sew.

We found NEW FABRIC companies, like ADORN IT.  Owls were everywhere!

We found FAVORITE FABRIC companies, like MICHAEL MILLER, and their Over-the-top, BigTop themed booth, with Elephants! Elephants were everywhere!

http://www.sewnatural.net/nl.asp?p=0&c=71

My favorite NEW DESIGNER, may have been ZEN CHIC, from Germany.  Very fresh, very modern!  Modern was everywhere!

And we saw some of our more familiar, favorite designers like Edyta Sitar with LAUNDRY BASKET QUILTS.  Her latest book is awesome, and her upcoming fabrics & patterns, with a RAIN theme, were lovely, and I can't wait to start a new project with her stuff!!  Inspiration was everywhere!  (Notice the flower bouquets in rain boots!)

There were NEW CONCEPTS, like QR codes - even in quilts!  If you have a smart phone, you may be familiar with this.  If not yet, you probably will be soon!  QR codes were everywhere!

And there were Old IDEA, still good, like FABRIC COVERED SHOES!  (Remember Modge Podge?) Black & white was everywhere!

http://www.sewnatural.net/nl.asp?p=0&c=167


And did I say, Hexagons were everywhere?!

http://www.sewnatural.net/nl.asp?s=hexagon



And, last but not least, YOUNG authors, designers, and their MODERN QUILTS were everywhere!

This new generation of quilters is thinking outside the box, yet, ironically, lots of designs seemed very much based on "the box".  LOL

Speaking of "outside the box", Mary & I were very excited to discover one of our favorite products has been NEW & IMPROVED - The MAGNETIC INVISIBLE QUILT HANGER.

 NOW AVAILABLE...the newest version of the Invisible Quilt Hanger will hang quilts from mini to king size with a single package, even more affordable. 

Magnetic Invisible Quilt Hanger 5 Piece Kit mounted with removable adhesive strips will not damage your walls. No more push-pins, screws, nails, or levels!  We love these!  Great in our old houses with uneven, plaster/lath walls.

Like all of us, I'm pretty sure you have SCRAPS, old & new.  

Here are two great patterns we discovered from Grizzly Gulch Gallery that will eat up your scraps, one narrow strip at a time, yards & yards worth!  

Get Hooked & Get Hooked II - 10 different Rugs & Table Runners, in two patterns which each include the appropriate size CROCHET HOOK. Very easy, written for those who do not crochet.

And last, but certainly not least, be sure to check out all the NEWEST FABRICS that have just been posted on the WEB here:
