I hope you all had an amazing holiday with your loved ones! As the New Year approaches, this is a great time to reflect on all your accomplishments that you have achieved during the year. Here at the AGF HQ we're reminiscing about all the lovely collections we've revealed, the great makers we've worked with, and all the good times we've had. To give you a glimpse at AGF's 2016, here's a re-cap of some of the major events that we experienced. Let’s start!
The Denim Studio by AGF
One of the most exciting collection releases we had in 2016 was the release of the Denim Studio by AGF. This new substrate took the sewing world by storm because of its versatility for garments and quilts. As you might know, the Denim Studio features denim prints, textured denim, linen, outland yarn dyes and more! Check out the look book for the original release and the fall 2016 edition of the Denim Studio.
As if having denim wasn’t exciting enough, we just had to release another surprise! This year we introduced AGF organics. This new substrate has our unmatched quality and the designs are printed on a 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton base cloth, with the most eco-friendly GOTS-approved inks and dyes in the industry. The first organic collection introduced by AGF was Hello, Ollie by Bonnie Christine and it was a delicate dream!
Designer - Dana Willard
We love it when the AGF family grows and this year we were happy to add Dana Willard from Made Everyday to the family! She showed off her vibrant personality with her limited edition collection Boardwalk Delight and her new collection Fiesta Fun for our new fabric division ANGLES. We can’t wait to see what surprises she will have for 2017!
Like many of you, here at AGF we are in LOVE with color! To find fun ways of mixing some of our favorite prints and curating color bundles, we created the ColorFun series. We’ve put together bundles ranging from neutral ivory to deep plum, showed off crafty projects that can be made with these projects and much more! Plus, Fat Quarter Shop now sells these color curated bundles! Yay!
AGF Sewcialite - Mister Domestic
Youtube Series- AGF Quilt Block Collection
This year was all about helping makers learn new things, so we created the Youtube series the AGF Quilt Block Collection. With every collection release we taught how to create a new quilt block with tons of techniques that you can use in everyday sewing. Visit our Youtube channel to see all the blocks you can sew.
AGF Consumer Website
At AGF we believe strongly in always learning new things and improving for the better. This year we felt that it was time to give our consumer website a makeover! If you haven’t seen it yet, I encourage you to explore its clean and modern design.
Fall 2016 Quilt Market- Houston, TX
Last but not least, one of the most exciting things that happened to us this year was winning the First Place Multiple Booth award at Fall Quilt Market in Houston. This totally made our year and it showed us that hard work and passion for what you love does pay off.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this recap of AGF’s 2016! Let me know in the comments all about the highlights of your year and what accomplishments you’re the most proud of. I hope everyone has a Happy New Year filled with creativity and success!
