International Quilt Market: Robert Kaufman & Timeless Treasures

Asian designs are still super popular on fabrics. We could see that at the booths of Robert Kaufman and Timeless Treasures at the Spring Quilt Market this year. Robert Kaufman promoted the super adorable Hello Tokyo collection which we also carry in our shop. The cute cat and Kokeshi doll designs are super kawaii. The presentation area almost exploded with colour. But we also saw adorable garments and accessories mad with the kawaii Girl Friends collection and Funbots collection, both by Ann Kelle.

At the Timeless Treasures booth we saw many pretty Asian designs mostly on quilts.

What customers make with our fabrics: girl’s dress and dog collar

Time to show off some adorable products some of our customers made with our fabrics. Cherie Amelie from Portugal sewed a super cute girl’s dress with our Little Red Riding Hood Kokka fabric. She posted a whole album full of adorable pictures of her little model posing for the camera, who obviously felt very comfortable in that wonderful summer dress. Unfortunately that fabric is currently sold out in our shop, but we still have many other kawaii Little Red Riding Hood fabrics in stock.

Our UK customer Emily from Leading the Pack made super cute dog collars with our fabrics. That’s an awesome idea, we haven’t seen anything like this done before. Especially the funny Timeless Treasures dog paw fabric is really great for a dog collar. We love it.

If you also want to show us what you made with our fabrics or other crafting products from our shop, just post a picture on our Facebook wall. We always appreciate it.

You would think that we already have quite a big selection of fabric materials in our shop, but we keep getting more.

Meet the fabric designers on modes4u: Hoodie

It’s time to introduce our first fabric designer for the American manufacturer Timeless Treasures. Say hello to Hoodie!

Hoodie

Artist, fabric designer, illustrator, sewer, mother, woman – those are just a couple of the terms the New York City based designer Hoodie uses to describe herself. Hoodie was born and raised in Japan and has been living in the USA for 20 years now.

The designer has been working in Japan and the US in quite various fields: She created illustrations and layouts, wrote essays for newspapers and magazines, designed posters, catalogs & costumes and was a food stylist for photo shoots. In the last years designing fabrics became her main activity. Between 1994 and 2000 she was already working as a freelance designer for Timeless Treasures, licensed Hoodie’s line with that manufacturer were released in the last two years. Between 1999 and 2007 she also worked as a house designer for Michael Miller. Nowadays she mostly designs for Timeless Treasures and is also an art director for Newcastle Fabrics since 2012. Hoodie’s fabrics on modes4u.com are mainly from the Sow and Grow collection and the l’amour de la vie line.

When asked about her inspiration the answer is simple: everything inspires her! “My work combines cute and kitschy with modern and trendy. My style blends memories from my childhood in Japan in the 1950s and 60s as well as inspiration from my current life in the United States. I call my work Fusion Art. It’s a delicious fusion of Asian and Western cultures, new and old designs all in one creative pot.”
Hoodie is currently working on her newest collections for Timeless Treasures. Visit Hoodies Blog to find our more about her work.

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.
