International Quilt Market: Riley Blake & Camelot

Time for more pretty pictures from the Spring Quilt Market. We totally loved the booth of Riley Blake. They focused on presenting the different designers and lines, so their booth was split up into lots of different corners about one collection. You got a great impression of the fabrics that way and saw lots of examples of what to do with the fabrics. You could also meet some of their fabric designers which would demonstrate how do do little projects with their fabrics.

Camelot is one of the labels that we discovered on the Quilt Market and didn’t know before. They had really cute and colourful fabrics which fit perfectly to our fabric range. We already received the first delivery, check out the Camelot fabrics in our shop.

Cute Rilakkuma office bathroom

We would have never guessed that one day we would show you the modes4u office toilet. Why should we? Usually office toilets are boring and really not worth being the centre of attention. But at modes4u it’s not just a regular office toilet anymore: We now have a Rilakkuma bathroom! Both our ladies toilets are now embellished with the cutest Rilakkuma plush toilet paper holders. One is in white bear design, the other one depicts the brown bear. When washing our hands we now get the soap from the most adorable Rilakkuma soap dispenser which we also sell in our shop. And to stick signs on the doors we use adorable Rilakkuma deco tape. The modes4u office toilet is now very kawaii.

Lots of new fabrics in our shop

Oh Gosh, where do we start? In the last days and weeks we really have been adding lots of new fabrics. First of all we have new suppliers. Now you can find lovely fabrics from the Canadian manufacturer Camelot and the American manufacturer David Textiles in our shop. The latter also supplies us with the super cool Skelanimals fabrics which we will introduce soon more detailed. Also we added some big panel fabrics by David Textiles which are perfect for quilting.

Robert Kaufman sent us new fabrics too in all materials available (cotton, flannel, jersey, corduroy). We have adorable new designs from Ann Kelle’s Urban Zoologie collection and super cute forest animal prints from the Forest playground collection. If you like cool retro prints you should check out all the new Jersey fabrics by Amy Biggers.

Since we added Fat Quarter fabric bundles to our shop, they always sold out super quickly, so be fast if you want one of the new items based on Colorstories by Robert Kaufman.

Cute Moomin exhibition in Hong Kong

Do you know the Moomins? They are the cute main characters of a Scandinavian book and comic series and currently the heroes of a promotion in the Hong Kong shopping mall The One. In The One x Moomin Summer Train Journey there are lots of cute photo opportunities revolving around the white hippos and the other main characters. As usual people in Hong Kong go crazy about everything cute they can take a picture with, so no matter when you pass the exhibition, there will always be plenty of people.

The train design is really adorable and quite lavish. We think it creates a cute cozy atmosphere and totally enjoyed looking at all the details on that train.

What to sew: Kokka and echino fabrics

Kokka showed some really beautiful examples of what you can sew with their fabrics at the Spring Quilt Market in the USA. As we carry most of the echino fabrics, Melody Miller fabrics and Ellen Lucket Baker fabrics they displayed on the trade show we took lots of pictures of how the fabrics were used for different sewing projects. You could see many  bags sewed with echino fabrics, we loved especially the ones made with the echino rhino fabrics. Collections like echino rhythm and echino twin were great designs for making bags as well. As the fabrics have lots of different patterns which are arranged in stripes, they create a stunning patchwork look.

We also loved the dress, bags and cushions that were made with Ellen Lucket Baker’s citrus tree fabric or the little canvas flower fabrics. And Melody Miller’s retro prints just look amazing on home decor.

International Quilt Market: Kokka, Cosmo & Trans-Pacific Textiles

At an important textile trade show like the Spring Quilt Market you meet manufacturers from all around the world. So it was no surprise that we also visited the booths of our Japanese partners Kokka and Cosmo. Kokka had a beautiful booth full of echino fabrics, but they also presented their collections by Melody Miller and Ellen Lucket Baker.

In the USA Cosmo is known as Quilt Gate, so we found them at the Quilt Gate booth where they presented wonderful quilting fabrics.

On the Spring Quilt Market we also got to know the little Hawaiian label Trans-Pacific Textiles. They are not based in Japan but employ several Japanese designers which create the most amazing Anime fabrics for them. We already carry them in our shop, be sure to have a look.

Santa Claus on summer vacation

It’s August, so it’s time for summer holidays, sunshine, ice cream and beaches. But what do you think Santa Claus is doing now? Most people probably don’t want to think about Christmas yet, but we think it would be funny if he was somewhere on a beach right now enjoying a nice time off like depicted in the funny Surfin’ Santa fabric by Alexander Henry.

What to sew: birch and monaluna

The booths at the Spring Quilt Market in Portland that we visited a couple of weeks ago were so beautiful that we want to show you some of the exhibits a bit closer. They are a great source of inspiration and might give you some ideas of how the fabrics can look like when used to sew clothes and home decor. Many of the organic birch fabrics and monaluna fabrics that you see in the pictures below we already carry in our shop, e.g. the cute birch animal parade fabric used for the children’s blouse or the orange birch butterfly fabric used for the shorts. Others will still arrive in the next couple of weeks.

Birthday Buns for Ho

Birthday time at modes4u. A couple of days ago we celebrated the birthday of our team member Ho by having a nice Dim Sum lunch in a new restaurant. It was a whole new experience for everyone, as this restaurant didn’t use the traditional bamboo steaming baskets to make the food but colourful silicone steaming baskets. None of us have ever seen that before, it looked really nice. The food was delicious too and as a nice surprise Ho got special birthday buns, which are filled with lotus paste and have a red mark on the outside.

But a birthday isn’t a birthday without a proper cake, so later in the office we all shared a nice creamy birthday cake. What a yummy day. Happy Birthday Ho!

International Quilt Market: birch and monaluna

A couple of weeks ago we visited the Spring Quilt Market in Portland, USA, and loved the trade show. We met lots of manufacturers whose fabrics we already carry in our shop and got to know many new brands and designers. As the booths on the Quilt market were a real party for the eyes with wonderful fabrics and exhibits to look at, we couldn’t stop taking pictures. Today we show you some impressions of the organic fabric labels birch and monaluna. You’ll find many of their fabric on modes4u.com, but new stuff will arrive soon, as we saw beautiful new fabrics at their booths.
