It's been some time since the last I wrote you, but I'm happy to say I've been working hard designing, making, and writing a series of sewing related products you'll love. I'm gearing up for my first experience as an exhibitor at the 2016 International Quilt Market in Houston, TX. I've had a whirlwind of tasks and learning to catch up on, but I'm so happy with the end result. Let me take some time to share with you MIB's latest news.
First, my first fabric collection for Michael Miller Fabrics is out. It's called FRONT YARD. The designs are inspired by the landscape and movement of things in the front yard of my house. It's so exciting to get the collection out in the world. I'm thankful for the team at Michael Miller for making my dreams come true. They love it, I love it, you're going to love it too.
FRONT YARD is available for presale, shipping January 2017. Simply call your local fabric shop to ask for FRONT YARD or if you're a shop owner, call (212-704-0774) or email Michael Miller.
Second, I finished up my official website and my own shop. Phew. It was a lot of work and a lot of learning. I had felt that I'd become quite efficient with blogger for my blog, but a website with a shop was an entirely different animal. The website came out nicely. There's more things I'd like to do to customize the website, but those changes will sprinkle in as the days go by.
And... yes, I have more sewing products available for you. The products were made with FRONT YARD. There's 6 quilt patterns, some of them modern and some traditional. There's a new book, called Simple Patchwork. It has 9 classical blocks, made in 3 block sizes, set in 12 layout options. Plus, it's chalk full of information from my favorite techniques and tips, as well as information for you to build out your own quilt. In addition to the fabric, quilt patterns, and book, there's also 7 garment patterns and 2 decorsewing patterns available. You must check them out!
Along with a new website, comes a new email address. Please update my email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you're heading out to market, then come to my schoolhouse and stop by my booth to see in person the beautiful garments and quilts. Details are noted in the first photo above. I am taking appointments, but I'm flexible either way. Simply shoot me an email to schedule an appointment.
I look forward to meeting many of you at quilt market,
