Our visit to the Quilt Market 2015 in Minneapolis: Part3

Although the Quilt Market in Minneapolis is first of all a fabric exhibition for suppliers from the United States, there are also very beautiful Asia fabrics on display. We were able to find amazing new collections from popular brands like Echino and Kokka that will be a great choice for anyone with a soft spot for Japanese designs. We are happy to say that many of the fabrics we chose are already available on modes4u and we are sure that you will love using them to sew wonderful bags, garments and other creative things.

New echino fabric collections online

We always love getting new echino fabric deliveries, it’s so exciting to open the boxes and see all the beautiful new prints. We couldn’t be much happier with the latest 10th anniversary collection, all the fabrics look really stunning. All of them are a cotton/linen blend and have vibrant colors. The samber line shows one of the most popular echino designs – the beautiful stag with glasses – combined with irregular polka dots. arc features birds with a nice arc pattern and parakeet has a great dotted Chevron print paired with birds. zon is a great line with safari animals and lots of geo prints that look a bit like big stripes of Masking Tape. The last new line of the collection is landscape with the abstract design of mountains and birds.

Each design is available in different colors.

What customers make with our fabrics: bags and Furoshiki

Time for a mini edition of “what customers make with our fabrics”. In the last weeks our Dutch customer fabriekt.nl showed us her beautiful bags she sewed using many of our Kokka and echino fabrics. Our French customer Bienvenue Chez Flaneuze is using our Michael Miller Kiss me fabric and the colorful Timeless Treasures cat fabric as Furoshiki. Furoshiki are traditional Japanese wrapping cloths to transport things.

New Kokka fabrics from Japan

We have many beautiful new Kokka fabrics from Japan. Most of them are oxford fabrics, but there are also some super delicate gauze fabrics and our first ever Kokka flannel fabric. We really like the England designs that Kokka has been releasing lately. Check out the fabrics with London buses, Queen’s guards or teapots. We also received many designs that have gold metallic decorations, for example with apples or cherry blossoms.

And there is also news from echino: We now carry the pretty cotton sateen collection as cotton sateen laminates.

New: echino sateen fabrics

echino is now also available as cotton sateen. We are super excited about these news and can tell you: the fabrics feel amazing! Most echino fabrics have a share of linen and therefore are a bit rougher. The new echino sateens are super lightweight fabrics that are 100% cotton and feel very smooth and soft. We can totally see them being used for light blouses, skirts and dresses.

We now have many beautiful echino sateen fabrics

Everyday Party has forest animal designs with bears, elephants, ants, birds and more. Some designs are also available as knit fabrics.
