Marty, Renee, and I had such a fun time exhibiting at Surtex over the last 3 days! Here I am in our travel themed booth with vintage furniture that our favorite antique dealer Michael Smith of Adelaide helped find and renovate! It was exciting to meet with companies like Galison/Mudpuppy, The Design Department, Daily Like, Andrews & Blaine Ltd., Paper Magic, Two’s Company, The Libretto Group, Little Bee and many more! We’re discussing several programs and soon I’ll have some exciting news to report..
Last year at ICFF we were so impressed by Surface View’s booth that we decided to hire them to make our wall murals. We’ll happily be reusing this view of Paris in our new workspace! The purse shaped red lunch tote with poodles was sewn by Andrea Deal.
Here’s Marty with the newest member of our studio family – she’s Bon Vivant named after my Paris fabric collection! I had the idea of making a dog coat out of some of the cloth and many thanks goes to Nancy at The City Quilter helping us create it! From our new samples we have plans for three new patterns!!!
