International Quilt Market: general impressions

This is the last part of our little series about the Spring Quilt Market we visited earlier this year. After we’ve shown you pictures of the booths of our suppliers already we close with some general impressions of the trade show. There were so many beautiful exhibition booths and eye candy to discover everywhere that we could have taken pictures forever.

Ideas on how to use Hello Tokyo fabrics by Robert Kaufman

Just a couple of days ago we added fabrics from the super cute Hello Tokyo collection by Robert Kaufman to our shop. While browsing the web we found some incredible pictures on what to use those fabrics for. We saw these photos on the blog The Red Thread written by Lisa Tilse. Lisa designed the collection for Robert Kaufman and showed really great examples of what to do with the Hello Tokyo fabrics. We’re totally in love with all those adorable cushions which you can sew with the big Kokeshi doll fabric. How do you like all these ideas?

Japan Hobby Show Part 4: Kokka fabrics booth

While visiting the Japan Hobby Show in Tokyo we also visited some of our suppliers who had booths on the tradeshow. As fabrics and sewing played an important role there, the Japanese fabric manufacturer Kokka couldn’t be missing of course. We really enjoyed the Kokka booth, they had lots of different sections with designer fabrics by Etsuko Furuya, Melody Miller or Ellen Lucket Baker. You could see lots and lots of beautiful things made with the fabrics, mainly bags and clothes. But boy, they surely looked amazing.

What customers make with our fabrics: echino bags

Again we spotted wonderful things that some of our customers made with our fabrics. After we already introduced you to the cute boy’s shirt Caroline from the Sew Can She blog sewed, she now also made a beautiful handbag from our echino fabric. The combination with the real leather handle is perfect, it is an absolute astonishing piece.

The French designer Les Bêtes de Céline showed us a couple of weeks ago a picture of how she was working on a shoulder bag with our echino laminate fabrics. Now she finished the bag and we totally love it. She combined two echino laminates by Kokka, so the bag is waterproof. It’s absolutely lovely!

What customers make with our fabrics: apron & tote

We’re always super happy when our customers show us what they’ve made with our products by posting pictures on our Facebook page or sending us emails. Lately we saw two super adorable projects we also want to show you.

One of our Spanish customers makes incredible aprons with our fabrics. We have already seen quite a few as she makes so many different ones. Lately the pink and black apron for which she used our Timeless Treasures sweets fabric caught our attention. We totally love the colour combination and think that the design look beautiful.

A German customer sewed a wonderful tote bag from our Robert Kaufman Sushi fabric. It’s a super funny idea and the bag will definitely attract a lot of attention.
