You're all invited
The Market Chronicles, Part 2.

The Quilt Market Chronicles, Part 1.

Hey everyone! How's it been?

Here at Art Gallery Fabrics we've been extremely busy ever since we got back from Market... between the shootings, the updates, the order processing, the fabric cutting, the video editing, the e-mail replying and oh my god! So much to digest after the whole show craziness! But of course, there's always time to give you the scoop on what happened at Market.

Setting up the booth this time seemed easy since we had everything so planned, organized, labeled and under control; well, we were wrong, ha! It took us quite a long time to put it all together but hey, it was totally worth it! With some strong teamwork everything gets done beautifully... you tell me! Here is the Fall 2010 Art Gallery Booth:

At the booth we were presenting two collections: Paradise, and Modern Affair; and this time I tried to bring a different way to showcase my products: DREAMBOARDS!

Let's start by the Modern Affair wall...

Some of you may be wondering... "What is all that stuff on the wall"?? Haha! Well, this is what I call a "Dreamboard": a collection of images, objects, and textures that inspire me to create. In my design process, I find it sooo important to surround myself with inspiration, to create a certain "mood"... So that's why I wanted to expand this concept, just take it out of my studio and show it to everyone, so you can also find inspiration and get your creative juices going!

Here are my Grab'n Sew kits and patterns... Did you know that we expanded the fabric choices for each of the Kits? We have 6 additional choices besides the original!

You might think, "What is a TV doing there" "And why is Pat on it?" well... I kinda wanna keep it on the down low for a little more... buuuuuut... I'm releasing my very first clothing pattern, and this time, on a DVD format (printed pattern pieces included)! I'm super excited about it, but I'm gonna spill the beans later, I promise.

And now. it's time for my personal favorite: THE SHOWROOM! This time it featured Dreaming in French, which as I've already mentioned, it's my most favorite collection so far. The inspiration for the room was the little french knick-knack boutiques, can you tell?

Everyone loved that little girl's dress with the big flowers. Would you like to see translated it in a new pattern?

And here's our brand new Catalog!! We decided to go totally radical and change our cover from dark gray to light aqua! What do you think?

I tell you, I have so many pictures I'm trying really hard not to post them all! I know Market it's only three days but I swear there's so much going on in so very little time, it's hard to cover it all! But I promise I'll do my best to keep you updated... Hope you like it so far, there's much more coming... stay tuned for Part 2!

For now, I just want to read your comments...

Love,

Pat.
